We are extremely pleased to announce that Chris Deans, our Merchant Manager, has become an ambassador for the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF).
Over the last 85 years, New Milton Sand and Ballast has grown and diversified to become a well-established provider of construction, sporting and horticultural products, building materials and waste services. However, one of the largest areas of our business is still unknown to many - our builders merchants.
We understand that many people are wanting to get back to some normality but the measures we have followed for the past year do not impact on our delivery of services and more importantly, ensure continued safety for everyone.
We’re proud to be celebrating our 85th anniversary and, with it, the many supportive customers, suppliers and partners we’ve worked with over the years.
We are very fortunate that our main customer base (local trades and the construction industry) have all continued to operate over this past year. This has meant that we ourselves have been able to continue (nearly) as normal.
The pandemic has had a massive impact on how we socialise. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s the value of having attractive, comfortable outdoor spaces. This, plus a huge shift towards outdoor socialising, means that many of us have made the decision to invest in our gardens.
Outdoor kitchens are fast becoming very popular in stylish modern homes, as people look to bring the indoors outside and create a beautiful space for al fresco cooking and entertaining. We’ve put together a guide, along with the materials required, to help you build your own garden kitchen.
