When we ran the walking lodge in Wensleydale winter was harsh. So I bought a Mountain Equipment down jacket from the Walking Shop in Leyburn.
It’s been so good and toasty and kept me warm in the winter for the last 6 years. This year it was looking a little worse for wear – faulty zip, ripped sleeve, in general it needed replacing. Then I discovered outdoor clothing repairs available at Lancashire Sports Repairs in Burnley, Lancashire.
They were so helpful and friendly on the phone, but to speed things up we took it to the factory. After two weeks we collected what looks like a new jacket; zip replaced and rip repaired and a good clean – it looks like new and all for £98. A new one would have cost me at least £250.
At Pinnacle Walking Holidays we see a lot outdoor equipment that needs some TLC, especially ripped waterproofs, boots needing to be resolved and poorly rucksacks. We will be recommending Lancashire Sports Repairs to our guests from now on; they are such a great company. Nothing is too much trouble.
