ZaZas Blog- May

I really do love this time of year and there's so much on this Month in and around Winchcombe!
Giffords circus are coming to town (May 18th - 22nd) and will be setting up their big top in Sudeley grounds, the annual walking festival takes place (May 19th - 21st) and you should have received your brochure for the festival of music and arts. This is my personal favourite, ending with a free street fair and festival fringe in North Street on bank holiday Monday (29th). You will also find Winchcombe Reclamation open over the bank holiday weekends so why not take the opportunity to call in and take a look around........?

Zebra Fact:
Zebra foals can walk within just 20 minutes of birth and run after an hour!

Zazas Blog - April

Spring has sprung and it's so nice to have the lighter evenings. We've had lots of people in the yard looking at garden bazaar, finding the perfect planter or staddlestone and getting the garden ready for the warmer weather.
We've been busy inside too. Our lovely showroom is finished and we now have WR Home and WR Workshops - a new Winchcombe based destination for restored and repurposed home interiors and new local artisan arts and crafts.
We have an array of vintage, original and unique restored, refurbished, one-of a kind and heritage furniture and decorative pieces. We are also showcasing a handful of specially selected, high quality handmade products from our friends across the Cotswolds. This includes soy candles, soaps, silk scarves and sculptures - championing local craftspeople and artisans.

WR Workshops

This Month we launched WR Workshops - a range of arts and crafts skills workshops we will be running throughout the year to champion local artists and give you the chance to get hands-on and learn something new.
Our first workshop was held by the very talented Matt Grimmitt from Winchcombe Pottery who spent the day here throwing pots and chatting to us about his trade and the history of Winchcombe Pottery.
We would like to thank Matt for his time - it was a privilege to learn from somebody so knowledgeable and passionate about their craft and we look forward to hosting further workshops in the future.
Remember to check our new TOUCH page to keep up to date with all that we do.......

ZaZa's Blog - March

The yard here at Winchcombe Reclamation has been busy of late as, with the improvement in the weather, people are embarking on their projects for 2017. We have seen several new items come into stock recently and are focusing on flooring this month.

We have a wide range of reclaimed flooring available from natural stone flags to timber boards and can also offer new alternatives. My personal favourite is this batch of pine floorboards reclaimed from a local Cotswold church. Why not call in to take a closer look and have a chat about your flooring requirements?
Of course, the clocks go forward at the end of the month (27th) and Spring is definately in the air - we really seem to be racing through this year. Oh, and speaking of racing, have you considered your bets for the Gold Cup Festival yet? All eyes will be on Cheltenham this month - be sure to give me a wave should you pass on the way to the racecourse!!

Lets keep in touch.....

Some of you may have noticed that recently we have been busy re-organising the yard here - installing a new office and workshop area, opening up more retail space and generally giving the place a bit of a 'face-lift'. Well, it doesn't stop there. We have also turned our attention to social media. We have always been keen to use these platforms to keep in touch with our customers and showcase what we do but were aware that sometimes navigating multiple websites, blogs and media accounts can be tricky.
So, we would like to introduce you to our WR TOUCH page (you can find the tab in the top right-hand corner of our website) This newly created media hub is where you will find our new blog offering regular updates, project reviews and inspiration. You can access all of our accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Houzz) directly from here and will also find links through to our associated quarries and roof tile company.

Simple - Everything in one place!
Take a look: and while you're there don't forget to sign up to our mailing list !
