Yorkshire Day - Competition

Ey up! It's Yorkshire Day and as a company that has been born and bred in West Yorkshire for 50 Years, we can't let this day pass by whithout celebrating. 

Whilst to the rest of the world Yorkshire is just another English county, to people who live in Yorkshire it's "God's country" and everyone who comes from Yorskhire (incuding our Swift Direct Blinds family!) is the chosen one. You might think, it's extremey rude to speak so highly of ourselves but what do you expect from the largest county in the UK?

Anyway, we might not be the chosen ones, but there are plenty of things that make us different to the rest of the country. Let's look just at a few examples: 

You know you're from Yorkshire when...

  • You drink your tea even when it's +30°C outside.
  • You don't bother to pronouce your "T's".
  • You have had the "lunch is dinner and dinner is tea" argument at least once in your life.
  • You're so proud of where you come from that even if you live outside Yorkshire, you still mention it at least 5 times a day. 

See what we mean? 

Now it's your turn - enter our competition
