Carrickfergus Cricket Club, who are sponsored by The Stove Yard, have just been voted Tildenet Club of the Year in the 2014 Cricket Ireland Awards. Not surprising really, when you think that the first team won four titles – Section 1 League Champions, RSA National Cup, O'Neill's Ulster Shield and the T20 Trophy, and there were other league wins for the 2nd and 4th teams, as well as the Under 15s team. An impressive seven titles in all! So the very warmest congratulations from The Stove Yard's team to all of the Carrickfergus teams and well done to everyone else at the Club for all your hard work and dedication throughout the 2014 cricket season. The award will be presented at the 2014 Cricket Ireland Awards lunch on Friday November 14th.

They're boiler stoves Jim, but not as we know them.
At The Stove Yard in the early days we built our business in Ireland on the back of sky rocketing oil prices and multi fuel central heating boiler stoves. With energy prices eventually settling down and with virtually everyone and his uncle having installed one, boiler stove sales eventually settled down.

If Lockdown has proved anything it's that we've been really missing our family and friends. Now we can all look forward to meeting up with them again. Many of us though will naturally be reluctant to mingle with the crowds in the beer gardens, cafes and restaurants – even if we could get in. Instead we'll settle for our gardens, patios and back yards for our grand reunions. Settle? You can't help thinking it's a bit like sending kids to their bedrooms as punishment, it's no longer the hardship it once was – and so it is with our own outdoor spaces.
It's brilliantly different and just what every stylish garden or patio needs. Those clever Danes at Hwam have done it again with their beautifully designed and co-ordinated outdoor stoves, fire pits, modular log stores and planters which have all been constructed from premium corten steel sheet. That's the trendy metal that looks like it's already weathered bright orange with rust, but in actual fact isn't.
