New van all dressed up and ready to go

We were recently gifted second delivery van for the Scottish Borders branch and it's looking very swish with its new livery. It's also had a thorough clean and valet by our steadfast volunteer driver Karl.

Look out for us delivering around the Eyemouth and Peebles areas very soon.
