I love the snow

Even though it makes a mockery of my delivery schedule, I still love it.

My two young boys woke me up at 7 am to go sledging in the park and it's beautiful out there.

And now i'm sitting here at home with the fire on, all nice and warm, cup of coffee in hand.

The view from my bedroom widow this morning.

I will ( at some point ) be venturing out to deliver the rest of the week-end orders. It's always a challenge driving in the snowy conditions but in 4 years i've only lost a couple days due to bad weather and icy conditions. So if you need wood and coal;  hand on heart i'll do my best to get to you.

I've got sustainable plantation crop Silver-Birch and Ash in stock.

Meanwhile, take care, wrap-up and keep warm.

Basically, it's cold out there.

It's predicted to stay cold or below freezing for the next week or so. Add to that the wind chill factor and it will feel even colder.

Though with a  London Log Company fire you can keep warm & toastie indoors.

It's also a good & cost effective way to heat the living area.

We've got a good stock of our lovely logs and smokeless coal in our store, here in Crystal Palace. And we are delivering in and around the area all week-end.

So, if you would like to be included onto our delivery schedule for the coming week-end or any time next week, then do please call or text me on 07970695930

We are on call 7-days a week and delivery is free.

Speak soon.

( and remember to wrap up warm )

Happy 2012

It's the start to the new year but not the end of Winter just yet.

Our standard London wheelie bins full of logs have been very well received this year, it make sense as it's an easy measure to get your head around.

They are also easy to store and packaging free too.
(i'm claiming the idea as my own here. A new minds eye measure, like fag packets, football pitches and double-decker busses)

We deliver to your door and can leave the bin with you; text me when it's empty and i'll collect it. Or I can empty it and take it away with me, what ever suits you best.

I'm also delivering smokeless coal in 25 kg bags. It's the biggest bag and it's very good quality.

We also aim to deliver your order promptly .

Speak soon.

Smaller logs for wood-burners

We're now cutting our lovely logs into 8' sizes.

These smaller logs fit well into the ever popular small log burners.

We've also got a good stock of smokeless coal too & we are extending our original early-season offer through into December.

Call me on 07970695930



The log burner shown here is a British Made Charnwood

There's definitely a turn in the weather now , though last night we went to see the new Tin-Tin movie in the West-End (all good fun) & people were still walking around in t-shirst.
Strange but true, mind you it has been the warmest start to winter on record I believe.

I'm  back in the real world & my replacement phone is now up and running.
 07970 695930
We are taking orders for deliveries from Wednesday 16th November.
As you can see we've a good stock of barn seasoned logs in.

And of course we have our un-cut cord wood ready to process into logs to suit your needs. From 6'' to 22''.

Remember, we are here 7-days a week through out the season.

Call me with any inquiry.

Look forward to speaking with you soon.

I've lost it or misplaced the thing.
Oh I know it's just a phone but we'd had such fun together. She slipped off while I wasn't paying attention yesterday and is nowhere to be found.
Luckily though, I have all the contacts backed up.

So if you could please E-MAIL HERE with your orders, delivery address & details, specially if you've recently ordered by text.

Thankfully, I have a shiny new I-Phone  winging it's way to me courtesy of Orange. So in the meanwhile please re-confirm your orders by e-mail.

Or call the landline 0208 3144592

Bonfires & Fireworks

Winter is here ! ( well in spirit anyway )

The clocks have at last gone back and tonight it's Bonfires & Fireworks all around London. For me all this signals the official start to Winter. There's a great joy in sharing the whole experience too. I look forward to the gathering of people en-mass to celebrate this important Winter Festival.

Though we're not alone in doing so. The massive festival of light Diwali celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs , Jains & Buddhists alike is also around this time of year. Fire-crackers are set off to ward away evil spirits, families & friends share food & sweets together, it all sounds very familiar, no?
Tonight we are going to be at Dulwich Sports Club as we have done for the last couple of years. They manage to get a good safe family feel to what is, a very busy event.
The Fire (which for me is the most important part ) is lit at 6:30. I love to see the way it starts, the colours of the gases being burnt, the sparks before the whole thing combusts into life. There's always an element of fear too, the fire is itself is primal, it demands respect and I like that.

The Firework display starts at 7:00 pm and there's always food & a bar for that all important Winter-Warmer.

You'll find it all happening here.

Have fun, be safe.
