(PRWEB UK) 13 October 2012
Sadly, this is entirely true. For the majority of the year, excluding the few weeks around the Olympics and Queen’s Jubilee, there have been no solid spells of sunshine in which families have been able to make full use of their barbecues outside.
This is terribly sad for a nation that places so much emphasis on the communal spirit which a BBQ can deliver. But, as the optimists say; there’s always next year... Unless, the world ends in 2012, of course.
Even if it does, that’s still alright for our friends ‘down below’, as the barbecuing season is just kicking off in Australia and New Zealand. Daylight savings has just kicked in down there and to the locals this can only mean one thing; it’s time to pull out those barbecues and cook up some grub. With temperatures being in the low 20’s, some might consider it a bit chilly, but for most, this kind of weather just beckons the char-grillers to come out and play.
Of course, those of us who live in the UK will probably be huddling around fireplaces and woodburners over the coming months whilst our Australian brothers are having meat-feasts outside in the sun. (Consider buying a house abroad for 6 months of the year, yet?)
Paul Dickinson, Product Manager for BBQBarbecues.co.uk, an online retailer of, that’s right, barbecues, was nice enough to comment on the season coming to a close and what it means for the business. “With seasonal products and services, it’s expected that things will come to an end or at least slow down dramatically. From past experience, the start of October is when things usually grind to a halt; however, we’re remaining hopeful as last year we sold a great amount of items over the off-season and there’s a hope this year might be similar. Over the winter, we’ll be having a variety of charcoal and gas barbecues on sale along with a fantastic portable collection which may prove good for a spot of winter camping.”
Don’t forget to check BBQBarbecues.co.uk for the latest deals this winter and store it away until the sun makes an appearance in spring.
