Tuin Junior F.C.

Hello everyone,

So as some of you may or may not know, Tuin sponsors the Heigham Park Rangers Pumas Under 12 Football Club. And their coach has just given us an amazing update on their performance in the ongoing League- The Under 12’s Division 2!

“Following on from our great 5-1 win in our first game of the season against Waveney Wildcats, we beat the local team to where we are based Brooke Juniors 6-2 in a good mannered game.”

We’re so delighted that our team is doing well already- and in well manner!

Their following game resulted in a 2-1 win against the Bohemian Tigers, only just scoring their winning point in the second half. With their most recent game ending in a fantastic 11-2 win!

Unfortunately this weekend they gained their first loss- against the current cup holders, Ormesby Junior F.C at 6-3. Even so they’re still determined for training and improvement! Lets give them our support shall we?

We wish you all the best of luck for the rest of the league!

Timber – Wood – Log Cabin Cleaner

I’ve been playing a lot today with a new product, I’m still experimenting with it and will produce a blog on it soon.

Here though is my first video on it ….. great for cleaning your timber cladding, your old log cabin or in fact any type of timber as far as I can see so far:

Timber Treatment of Larch / Douglas or Oak timber

This is just a teaser, have a look at this treatment we will shortly be launching:

This is a timber treatment primarily designed for larch and oak or douglas fir. It cleans prior to a proper treatment using something like our Carefree Protect Timber Treatment …. it looks damn impressive!!

I’m wondering if this will work on cleaning up a log cabin if it hasn’t been treated properly or for a long time when a cheap treatment has failed …. interesting …  I will come back with findings soon.

Muffins Complaint

I was on the road yesterday and in meetings and I received a phone call from the office telling me muffins had arrived, they sent me this picture:

A box of Muffins was on my desk!

This wasn’t something I was expecting but someone remembered a customer asking the day before our address and asking if I worked at the main office.

I was then sent this photo a short while later.

Muffin Eaten!

Muffin Eaten!

AND then this one !

Muffins gone bar two

Muffins gone ….. bar two

And this was the scene of my desk this morning, at least they had saved me two 🙂

It turns out this was from a customer who was pleased with us. Not because he was happy with the product but quite the opposite. He had sent in a complaint a few days earlier which I looked after and resolved as quickly and as best as I could. This box of muffins was his thank you and I’m really chuffed.

Mr S, if you read this thank you so much. If anyone else fancies sending us muffins please only address them to me as the greedy buggers in the office ate them all. Jos reported she ate four! Thankfully they did save me two which I enjoyed with my tea this morning and I probably didn’t need anymore, they are though thoroughly recommended!

Thank you Mr S.

The product the complaint was about was the Drenthe Shed:

Mr S was correct, there was some quality issues and also some damage caused by the carrier. It is impossible for us to get everything right all of the time but we do try damn hard and when things go wrong we try even harder to make them right again quickly.

I’ll apologise now ……. we do cock up, so do our carriers, and also our hauliers but we try very, very hard to give the best service we can and to resolve a problem quickly to everyones mutual satisfaction.

So, any muffins in appreciation of resolving problems quickly, now Mr S has set the precedence, please send them my way. BUT please make sure I’m in the office when they are delivered 🙂

Not a log Cabin in sight

No log cabins here, no timber at all, a post to remember a past life I had back in the day ….. This is my blog and not all has to be about log cabins, does it?

This is what I used to do before a nasty injury …..

Believe it or not the skills I had in my old life are interchangeable across sectors:

  • Commitment
  • Service
  • Care
  • Attention to Details
  • Quality
  • Knowledge
  • Expertise
  • Empathy
  • Professionalism

All of these transpose to what I now do.

He was with us for hours today, proudly showing off his wares, it’s our own fault though, we looked after three amazing babies all winter. They grew into these lovely ladies:

The babies we looked after in the winter have grown into pretty girls.
