A very Happy New Year to you all!
Before the festive break, we ran a competition that encouraged you to share your favourite #CharnwoodFestivePhoto via email or on Instagram. We were delighted to receive some lovely images that showcase the joy of owning/using a woodstove throughout the festive season.
After all, a wood-burning stove provides the perfect antidote to the cold and darkness; Providing a unique warmth and light that lifts spirits, calms minds and restores bodies. Helping families form core memories that last a lifetime and building traditions that encourage a coming together year after year.
Thank you all for your wonderful photos!
We are happy to announce that this year’s winner is the fabulous photo below which we have dubbed ‘Toasty Toes’. Whilst we had many wonderful entries, we felt that this photo really tells a story – capturing a celebratory vibe as well as the warmth and utility of owning a wood-burning stove. It also resonated with us Island dwellers who all love a winter walk and there is nothing quite like warming up by the fire afterwards.
And the winner is…
Bringing the Festive Cheer
Below are some survey responses from Charnwood owners about owning a stove during the festive period and particularly on Christmas Day.
“Christmas Day spent with all the family and grandchildren gathered around our stove brings happy memories all year round.”
“Christmas especially. The stove just provides a much-needed atmosphere on a cold winter’s night. You feel relaxed, cosy and there is something about it that just welcomes you into the living room. I couldn’t live without it.”
“It’s a ritual on Christmas morning to rekindle the stove, and to unwrap the presents without a fire is unthinkable. There’s something magical about children in their pyjamas sitting on the rug in the cosy space in front of a blazing stove.”
“My young nephew visited at Christmas & we built the fire together. It was the first time he had ever lit a real fire. We celebrated with toasting marshmallows! It wasn’t just building a fire – it was building a memory.”
Now you’ve seen and heard just how wonderful a Christmas can be with a Charnwood, we recommend planning early so that you are up and running for next year. We have seen record demand for wood-burning stoves over the past 18 months and despite significant investment, our factories are still running at capacity which can lead to waiting times for some stoves. So, it makes sense to start getting ready for next year now so that you and your family can make the most magical time of the year even more special!
