Brexit Deal A welcome Step Back From The No Deal Cliff Edge
 

Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) National Chairman Mike Cherry, said: “With 20 weeks left until exit day, many small businesses will be relieved to finally see some progress being made. An agreed draft Withdrawal Agreement is a significant step back from the cliff edge which would result in a chaotic no deal Brexit that would be deeply damaging and dangerous for our small firms.

“If this deal passes parliament, small businesses will be given the security of a transition period which will allow them to carry on operating as they do now from the 29th of March 2019 until at least the end of 2020. This brings with it some certainty that our small businesses have craved. It will hopefully lead to businesses pushing the go button on investment decisions that have been on pause as they waited for a better understanding of the medium term trading landscape post Brexit day.

GM Fundraising Christmas Cards Are Now Available

 

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about spreading some festive cheer with your customers, suppliers and friends. What better way to do that than to send a Christmas Card that is raising money for a very worthy cause. The 2019 GM Fundraising Christmas cards are available now and this year’s design is one of the best yet.

Alan Sadler from GM Fundraising explains: “Over recent years there has been a move away from traditional Christmas cards, people choosing to opt for more mobile friendly ways in which to send their Seasons Greetings. But at GM Fundraising, we firmly believe there’s nothing quite like the personal feel of a card, which is why each year GM Fundraising commissions the children at Hope House Children’s Hospices to design unique Christmas Cards.

The Korniche Shines At The Biggest Regional Homebuilding & Renovating Show
 

As a smaller regional event, our Korniche team were not sure what to expect from the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at Harrogate following the hustle and bustle that met us at ExCeL, London. However, we soon found that there was no cause for concern as the Northern Region crowds turned out in their droves to attend the well-organized show.

The interest in the Korniche lantern product at Harrogate came from the usual direct trade requests, self-builders and architects all the way through the spectrum to the homeowners themselves looking for the products they want to see on their single storey flat roof extensions, and the Korniche certainly provides the perfect solution for many.

Letter To Window News

 

Dear Gerald,

Since publishing our door furniture performance and warranty research in May, installers have told us about the true cost of product failure which is tarnishing reputations as well as furniture.

The door furniture ‘credit on return’ policies, where a credit for the rotting component is paid only when the faulty product is brought back from site, packaged and shipped off to the supplier for inspection. This is a contributor of why 77.5% reported they are unhappy with how these warranty issues are handled.

Customers tell us the return processes are so convoluted that in many cases they simply don’t bother returning the item. They pay the supplier of the faulty product for another one and fit the same again!
