Time to reflect over the Easter Break

12 April 2019

As we approach the Easter break, it seems like a good time to take stock, to reflect on the year to date and look forward to some well-earned time off. With Easter falling much later than last year, our first Bank Holidays of 2019 are now in sight and most school children have broken up. Here at David Salisbury, our orangeries and timber windows factory and offices will close at the end of Thursday 18th April and we will re-open first thing on Tuesday 23rd April.

Whilst many will think our MPs perhaps don't deserve a holiday(!), I am sure a break from the endless round of Brexit debate and speculation will do us all some good.  Another extension to Brexit was perhaps an inevitable outcome resulting from a lack of consensus for any particular way forward.

One more certain thing is that Easter is a time for reflection and for enjoying some fun with the family – and the additional space provided by an orangery or garden room is the ideal place for some seasonal entertaining. 

Spring has arrived, despite the weather trying to cast us back into Winter at times, and the sight of new born lambs in the fields and green leaves on the trees underlines this. It is a time of year that seems to promise so much (politicians take note!) so being able to take in the views from a glazed extension like an orangery or conservatory is something that cannot be emulated.

Whether you're entertaining family or friends over Easter, there is nothing quite the flexible space provided by an orangery or oak framed extension. Whatever the weather, you can be closer to the outdoors and your surrounding environment. If you’re organising an Easter egg hunt, being able to easily move from indoors to outdoors via a set of French Doors or Bi-Fold Doors, would cover every possible base.

Will we get weather like this over Easter?

Orangeries: spaces for enjoyment indoors or out

No matter what your plans are for the holiday period, can we take this opportunity to wish everyone connected to David Salisbury, whether a customer, supplier or employee, an early happy Easter.

We can only hope that those involved in the Brexit process similarly take some time to reflect on where we go next. Indeed even the Prime Minister stated it was time [for the House of Commons] to reflect over the Easter break. Perhaps some time spent in a David Salisbury orangery or garden room will help find a way forward!?

Happy Easter!
