Tomorrow is the opening day of the biggest trade fair in the Nursery Industry’s calendar, The Harrogate Nursery Fair at the International Conference Centre, Harrogate. Chiggs is fortunate to be based in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, with Chiggs HQ being a mere mile up the road from the conference Centre- how convenient!
Although spring has officially sprung, someone forgot to tell Mother Nature, and we seem to be in the grip of a new ice age in North Yorkshire at the moment! It snowed pretty much all day yesterday, and as I type this on Saturday morning the snow is still coming down accompanied by strong gusts of wind…brrrr!
The picture here is of our road- so you can see the volume of snow that has fallen on Harrogate in the last few hours! The local roads in the area are very difficult, but the main roads in town are mostly clear. Here is a link to our local radio station, Stray Fm’s traffic and travel updates http://www.strayfm.com/trafficandtravel.php
For those visitors flying in to the trade fair via Leeds Bradford Airport, however, the airport has been snow closed for periods over the last 36 hours with some delays, and it’s recommended that you check with your airline to get the latest updates- here is a link to the arrivals and departures updates on the Leeds Bradford Airport website. http://www.leedsbradfordairport.co.uk/arrivals-and-departures
If you are visiting or exhibiting, I hope you have a very successful show- Chiggs doesn’t have an exhibition stand this year, but if you would like any trade information and a wholesale price for Chiggs Wheels, we have a trade enquiry form on the Chiggs website, or you can email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to send details of our unique, patented new baby gifts and greeting cards!
