We have been busy making nest boxes again. These three have been delivered to a local primary school for their nature garden.
After years of good service we have also replaced the boxes outside our own office. Just waiting for new home nest makers!
We have been informed of a problem with some of the Ballet A4 paper we supply.
A blunt blade on the production line has left a burr on the edge of some sheets. This can cause jams!. If you hear a cracking sound when you fan a new ream or have had any issues, please let us know immediately and we will swap out for a new batch. Sorry!

Well, we always have something new happening to us here at Clavering Stationers. We managed to reunite a missing cat with their owner! Millie had been missing from home for approx a week, but had been spotted roaming around our estate. One of our eagle eyed suppliers spotted her and Lesley went running round to catch her! To cut a long story short, Millie visited us at work until her owner came to get her. One happy owner and one happy cat! Clavering Stationers to the rescue!

Richard is back from his holiday in beautiful Perthshire, which was full of autumn colours. Lots of walking in the hills with his faithful terrier Holly. He even managed a Park Run in Perth! 5km on the North Inch of the "Fair City", a lovely friendly run, and he bumped into a fellow Park Runner he'd met at Gibside. Well run Jill and her mum!
We had a visit last Friday from the Dynamic Bus who were promoting their new range of office seating. What a fantastic way of showing off your products!
If you are needing new seating, give us a call to see their range.
An early start with breakfast courtesy of Greggs. From East Horton the route is North East passing Old Hazelrigg and on to St Cuthbert’s Cave. The ground was quite wet from the previous day’s rain but it was brightening all the while as we passed through woods and skirted Buckton Moor. We walked into the little village of Fenwick in full sunshine and stopped to gather the energy for what we thought would be a hair raising dash across the A1. In the end we strolled up, no traffic, sauntered across. By lanes and fields we came to the East coast mainline and telephoned for permission to cross. No sauntering on this occasion!
Our timing was spot on to cross the causeway by the Pilgrims Path over the sand and we reached our destination in high spirits. A photograph was permitted and taken by a warden at the Priory and we then retired to the Crown and Anchor for a well-earned thirst quencher.
We had enjoyed a great four days and been lucky in many ways. None more so than the friendly folk we met along the way and the great company of my fellow walkers Richard and Martin. A walk I would definitely recommend.
Our Richard is the one in the middle.
A good sleep and a great breakfast had us eager for the start. We were soon back at the side of the road and left the car. Climbing again by tracks and fields, it was a long time before the Eildons and the Waterloo monument stopped dominating the skyline behind us. Fantastic scenery and views all round, we dropped down into Cessford and rested beside the ruined castle. Still no takers for Eccles cakes; winner! From here it was roads all the way to Morebattle which has a great little hostelry, the Templehall Hotel. Well, it would have been rude not to! That stiffened our resolve for climbing to the highest points on the whole walk, via Grubbit Law, Wideopen Hill and Crookedshaws Hill before descending into the Bowmont Valley.
The road and paths follow the Bowmont towards Town Yetholm and then our finish at Kirk Yetholm.
We were casually near the Border Hotel and enquired about rooms and were in luck. A lovely lady took me by taxi to recover the car while the other two met the locals. Good food, chat, refreshment and a very comfortable room.
Day 3 coming soon!
Richard recently completed the St. Cuthbert’s Way Walk, 62 miles from Melrose to Lindisfarne. This is the tale!
With two willing friends, we made an early start from Newcastle (by car), heading for the start point at Melrose. Leaving the car there we set off, the initial stage being a steep climb to the saddle of land between the Eildon Hills. Nobody volunteered for the detour to either summit. Via Bowden, the route took us to Newton St. Boswells then, dipping under the A68, the path meets the River Tweed and follows the south bank to St. Boswells.
Leaving the Tweed at Maxton, a bench outside the kirk made a perfect place for a lunch break. Nobody wanted to share my Eccles cakes, selected for their high energy. I did offer! Restored we pressed on following Dere Street as straight as a die for miles with views of the Waterloo monument. Eventually we reached Harestanes visitor centre and enjoyed a pot of tea at Mary’s Dairy. Slightly sore of foot we pressed on circling Monteviot House and crossing the River Teviot by a narrow suspension bridge. We halted at the side of the Kelso road near Mounthooly and called a taxi.
Back at Burts Hotel in Melrose we rehydrated with Timothy Taylors Isotonic Landlord and enjoyed an excellent meal. No going back now!
Check back here shortly for Day 2!
Our driver Ian, completed the Edinburgh Marathon in 3hrs 25 mins at the weekend, despite an 8 mile headwind at the end!
