New Year message from Will

Well, what a year it has been for us all! I would like to end the year by firstly thanking you all for your support during these difficult times. What has been so wonderful to see first-hand during the year is the fantastic community spirit and support that we at bumbles have seen and felt from everybody, thank you!

We really could not have done it without every person that supported us. Whether through word of mouth, sharing an online post, choosing to buy from us and all the big and small things in between it all makes a difference and the staff, my family and myself are extremely grateful.

I would also like to publicly thank every member of staff who have worked exceptionally hard this year in the most difficult of circumstances at times to do their best to deliver the level of care for bumbles and service to our customers that is expected whilst facing all the challenges in front of them. I am extremely proud of them all.

I thought I would end the year sharing some pictures from throughout 2020, a reminder of the new beginnings early spring brings and the beauty that plants, nature and our gardens bring us. Even in the most difficult of circumstances Mother Nature can bring us hope and a smile and help our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing which I hope we at Bumbles have been able to play our part in maintaining and uplifting for all our amazing customers.

We wish you all nothing but happiness in 2021.
Will Homewood, 31/12/2020
