Halloween is hiding around the corner… so our frighteningly friendly staff are ready to share a selection of creepy creative ideas which will keep your monsters amused for a couple of hours. This is a FREE event with no tricks, so it’ll just be a treat! All monsters, zombies and children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian – numbers are strictly limited so booking is essential. Please see event listing for full T&C’s.

Saturday 1st December – 10:00-14:00

You don’t take up sharpening as a hobby – Join us in store as we reveal one of our most important product introductions in recent years – the variable speed, reversible ‘Ultimate Edge’ Sharpening System. Designed to sharpen any edge tools, this versatile system provides precise control of blade and bevel angles and sharpens to a perfectly flat surface. A choice of jigs will accommodate almost all chisels and plane blades while allowing freehand sharpening of knives, scissors and shears. In addition, a unique ‘Twist n Fix’ multi-purpose arbor allows for quick fitment of a variety of mops, felt and profiling wheels. Make sure you don’t miss this unique opportunity to take a first look at the all-new ‘Ultimate Edge’.

Saturday 8th December – 14:00–16:00
