It's important to buy British

It's always encouraging to hear a story in which British manufacturers come up trumps.

A friend was in dire need of an important spare part on his essential fuelburning cooker come house heater. Sadly it turned out to be 65 years old - the same age as my friend.

He contacted the manufacturer and was totally amazed - and you can imagine thrilled to bits to hear "Yes we have a spare part". His equipment wouldn't need to be cobbled together to get to work. It would return to "As good as new" status.

The Manufacturer was Rayburn.

At the same time a neighbour was told his model of equipment was out of date when also asking for a spare. Sad - his was four year's old.
