A Trip Down Memory Lane for Kennings

Here at Kennings, we’ve been around for quite a while, and if you have lived around the Goole area, there is no doubt you will have received one of our many amazing promotion leaflets. We have been digging through the archives and we’ve found some fantastic old leaflets guaranteed to give you some nostalgia and make you wonder why you didn’t stock up on fence panels in 2002…

Fence panel launch

When we launched our first kind of European Style panels, they were all the rage. They’re still as popular today, but the prices are a little different! Who remembers when you could get a 6’x6′ panel for only £39.75 (INC VAT)? It would cost more than that in timber in 2022! Nowadays our 1.8m x 1.8m Elite St Lunair Panels are still a bargain at only £99.29 each (INC VAT). Our panels are made from specially selected FSC timbers and manufactured to a very high standard, planed and pressure treated with a pale green finish that allows the beauty of the wood to show through, not just screwed and treated! Our selection of fence panels has grown exponentially over the past 35 years, we now offer a wide range of panels to suit any need or budget with our cheapest panel being only £20.89 each (INC VAT) – even cheaper than on our retro leaflet!

Wheelbarrow Nostalgia

Speaking of bargains, take a look at this poster for our wheelbarrows, only £20 (+VAT) You can still get an amazing deal on our wheelbarrows down at our Hook Road yard, but don’t bring this leaflet, the price won’t be honored, unfortunately! We have also continued stocking work boots at a substantially reduced price, our fantastic team can vouch for that! But luckily, we have hired a fantastic graphic designer – so our posters no longer look like the below…

Us here at Kennings are happy to let you know, that our posters are much more pleasing to the eye in 2022.

2002 Prices anyone?

While our prices are unbeatable in 2022, they were eye-watering in 2002! Just look at those aggregates for only £3.88 (+VAT), if only we had a time machine like Nigel the Martian. While we would love to still offer the crazy 2002 prices, we still have the same core principles, supplying the customer what they want, delivered on time, at unbeatable prices! Nostalgia aside, we pride ourselves on these core principles and our excellent team of staff is excited to prove that we have what it takes to make your garden dream, a reality. Whether you like to shop online from the comfort of your own home, or would prefer to come to see us in person at any of our sites.

Definitely out of this world prices!

Goole’s beautiful tribute to our Armed Forces

Here at Kennings, we recently supplied materials to a group of veterans and students from Delta Acadamey Goole. They have kindly dedicated their last two weekends to building and painting the fantastic Remembrance Day memorial for our Armed Forces at Goole’s clock tower.

The process took a long time, but it was worth it! We can tell the group put in some fantastic effort. We could not be prouder to be part of this community!

What is Remembrance Sunday?

Remembrance Sunday always falls on the second weekend of November, it takes place on the 14th of November 2021 this year. The nation has the opportunity to remember those who sacrificed their lives to defend our freedom and way of life. We remember those who served in the Armed Forces from Britain and the Commonwealth, the vital role played by the emergency services and those that have lost their lives due to conflict or terrorism.

Alongside Remembrance Sunday, every year on the 11th of November, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that marked the end of the First World War in 1918, we traditionally hold a one or two-minute silence recognising the precise time that the hostilities ceased in 1918 – the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

The display looks even better at night.
