Slug Pellets Still Available!

An update on the slug pellet ban.

We are now able to supply once again due to the ban being lifted after the Manufacturer contested in the High Court the way the ban was implemented.

At this moment in time we do not know how long before the Government will put the ban back in operation, but in the meantime we still have stock for sale in the shop again.

So why not stock up for the Winter to keep those pests at bay.

Use of Slug Pellets

On the 19th December 2018 The Environment Secretary has stopped the sale of Slug Pellets containing Metaldehyde from the end of June 2019.

This means we will longer be able to supply you from the Community shop.

However we do have plenty of stock at present!
