Hey! Protect your eyes in the garden!

Monday, June 27th, 2011

And save 10% on a new pair of Sunglasses thanks to Gardenproud.

Summer is here and whether you are sunbathing, barbecuing or gardening looking after your eyes is critical.

As my optician recently reminded me, protecting your eyes against prolonged exposure to strong sunlight is pretty sensible. Particularly if you want to reduce the risk of cataracts, damage to eyelids, or even temporary blindness caused through sunburn to the cornea. For further information about the risks see

Well the solution is simple. Wear sunglasses!

If you are sunbathing then pose away in your trendy designer specs! But if you’re in the thick of it, digging away in a rose bed, you’ll need something a bit more durable that can take the odd knock when you walk into a tree branch!

There are some good options here:

Oakley are re-knowned for their range of tough sunglasses that sports people the world over have adopted. They have a wide range from lighter models to heavy framed sunglasses. They also offer a good after-sales service so if there is an accident you can get your sunglasses repaired, including lens replacement.  Expect to pay between £60 – £150.

Another great option are Maul Jim sunglasses that are much lighter concept with polarized lenses coming as standard, so the clarity is superb. Maul Jim produce a wide range of styles to suit most tastes. Expect to pay around £100.

Ok, so where in Tunbridge Wells do you go?

There’s the perfect place.  Star Sunglasses. You’ll find them in Ely Court, just as you walk into the Victoria Place shopping centre from Camden Road.

They’ve got a terrific range of sunglasses, so there’s something to suit everybody.

And as a special offer to Gardenproud Customers there’s an exclusive 10% discount.

Floral Pictures by Carolyn Towers Wood

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Agapanthas 47 x 57 cm oil and oil pastel, pale wood frame

From 2000 to 2002 Carolyn studied painting with the Open College of Arts and its tutor John Hicks. She also studied 20th century British artists and she says, “particular artists who were of interest to me!”

Her passion for learning and improving her techniques continues in the short courses and workshops with experienced artists she attends regularly.

Carolyn’s main areas of interest are colour, pattern and texture. She works with oils, acrylics and mixed media, usually on a surface which she has built up with collage and gels.

Her work has been exhibited in many shows throughout the south and south-west of England and in 2008 and 2009 she took part in the Hampshire and West Berkshire Open Studios scheme. In November 2009 an article appeared in “Picture Review” magazine promoting her work.

Carolyn’s paintings have been purchased by private collectors in the UK, France, Germany and the USA.

We are now delighted to offer a select group of Carolyn’s floral and landscape paintings through Gardenproud. They retail from £180, plus despatch.

Lilies with cherries 48 x 57cm oils and oil pastel, gold frame
