Black Country Firewood would like to wish all of their customers a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
Well what a year 2019 has been. In January our beautiful baby daughter Isla was born, she has just begun to take her first steps! Her birth coincided with us starting the groundworks for our new purpose-built drying facility; we were pleased this progressed both on time and more importantly on budget, being completed in May. This enabled us to move all of the firewood we had chopped up and split in the spring undercover to continue drying. The new building has been a large capital investment for us, we were fortunate to be awarded a European Rural Development Grant to help towards the cost, and I would like to
take this opportunity to thank all of our customers who wrote letters of support which helped the application tremendously.
Probably more luck than judgement we timed the completion of the new building to perfection. Never could have we predicted the unprecedented wet weather in the Autumn. We recorded record levels of rainfall for the 3 months of Sept, Oct, and Nov, and although the yard got a little muddy our new storage facility has meant all of our firewood has stayed clean and dry.
As I write this, we are in our busiest period of the year leading up to Christmas. We will take a well deserved break over the festive period so all of the team can rest, recuperate and spend time with their families, and hopefully turn up refreshed (rather than hungover) to start the New Year ready to continue the firewood cycle!
As we have said previously, we encourage all of customers, both old and new, to come and visit us in our Firewood Centre. Here you can learn about the different options of firewood we have to offer and most importantly, our firewood technicians can provide advice and answer any questions you may have.
