As you can see from the front cover of our new magazine, we were pretty optimistic at the time of design that this summer would be a repeat of last year. Instead, we've given the hot temperatures away and gone back to typical British summer weather. Rain, clouds and a bit more rain.

On a positive note, it's still warmer than usual and we've got lots of sweet stories in our latest customer magazine to brighten up your day too. Where you can read all about...

  • Did Futures customer Mick 'the Chops' Wallage, defend his title at the World Beard & Moustache Championships for the third year running?
  • A Daventry based school choir who sang and danced for Futures customers
  • How to grow your own veggies and microgreens at home
  • Your chance to win £75 in shopping vouchers

Could you be like Mick? No, we're not asking you to grow a world record beard, although if you fancy it we won't stop you... but maybe you could be the feature of our next magazine?

Do you have a weird and wonderful story to share? Do we have any more world record holders out there? Email to give us all the gossip and then, yes, maybe you could be like Mick?
