Outdoor Benches Provided by Gardencentreshopping

We had some fantastic garden benches provided by the guys at Gardencentreshopping.co.uk, who gave us a discounted selection of Winawood™ all weather benches, which means we don’t have to spend anymore time oiling our vast range of benches around the society grounds!

This has saved us a lot of time in the long run, and as the benches needed replacing anyway, it made sense to use these instead.

We highly recommend you check them out at the link below:
