Taxing times - but are you full of beans this summer?

Dear <$salutation$>,

August tends to be the UK’s peak holiday season. Some dash abroad, others explore the rolling landscape of Britain whilst the green fingered among us tend to our borders.

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh fruit and vegetables from your own garden or allotment - all produced with just a little help from Anchor Storage.

Wigwam or Criss-Cross?

The humble runner bean began life as a perennial plant from South America. Today it is one of our most popular home grown vegetables. But growing to heights of 2m (6ft) tall, they need just a little support.

Over the past 12 months Anchor Storage has handled nearly 10 million bamboo canes. From 10” green flower sticks for your orchids to 15’ poles (up to 6” in diameter) for decorative use and of course, not forgetting canes for your runners.

Whether you prefer the wigwam support, criss-cross style or a simple line connected by mesh netting, there’s a very good chance your canes passed through Anchor Storage.

Anchor goes for gold

Local athlete Ben Mead dropped in to Anchor Storage where he was presented with his grant by Suffolk SportsAid Foundation supporters Stephen and Linda Britt.

Ben has just returned from helping the England under 15 basketball team achieve gold in the Copenhagen Invitational Tournament, and will soon be heading to Croatia to compete for the England Under 16 team in the European Championships.

“Ben is a really talented athlete and full of potential for the future. To be selected for the England Under 16 team whilst still under 15 speaks volumes about his ability” commented Stephen.

“Anchor Storage is pleased to be involved with the Suffolk SportsAid Foundation and to be playing a small part in helping talented young sportsmen and women from the county to achieve on the national and international stage” he added.

Anchor Storage has recently become a Gold sponsor of the Suffolk Sports Aid Foundation which was set up and inspired by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. (Read more…)

Taxing times

It is getting ever more expensive to own a car these days. Not only do we have to contend with the ever escalating cost of fuel, insurance is also going through the roof – not to mention road tax!

Well, although here at Anchor we can’t do much about that, we can help you display your very expensive tax disc in style.

If you are one of the first five readers to email us with “Tax Disc” as the subject line, we’ll send you a ‘Special Edition’ anodised aluminium Anchor Tax Disc Holder.

That’s about it for this month. But don’t forget you can call us anytime on 01 728 860 555 or email us at info@anchorstorage.co.uk for all your storage and distribution needs.

Best wishes

Stephen Britt
