As many of you will know The Stove Yard are a major sponsor of Ards RFC in Newtownards – you'll also see our showroom staff proudly wearing their Ards hoodies, for example. Not content with our sponsorship money, they now want blood too.

You'll recognise Richard from a number of our videos.

Wood Burning Stoves in New Build Houses

Check out our 18-page guide: Stoves and New Builds.

It really pays to think about this as soon as possible, even if you're not quite ready to fit one right away.
