6 top tips on hosting the ultimate BBQ

This year’s Early May Bank Holiday was the hottest on record, with the glorious sunshine inspiring many of us to ditch our living rooms for the back garden, fire up the barbecue and dine al fresco with our friends and family.
If you didn’t manage to get your grill on, don’t fret. Fingers crossed, there’ll be plenty more opportunities as the summer goes on – why not get one in the diary for National BBQ Week, taking place from 28th May to 3rd June?

7 reasons to make the GP Charge AnyWay your ultimate travel companion

Are you jetting off on holiday this year? Along with stocking up on the essentials and sorting your travel money, you need to think about how you’re going to charge your tech – such as phones, tablets, smart watches and digital cameras – while you’re away; not to mention those portable fans if you’re heading somewhere hot! Here are some reasons why the new GP Charge AnyWay makes the ultimate travel companion and should take pride of place on your holiday shopping list this year… 1.It’s safe for travel

This means that it can be kept in either your carry-on baggage for battery boosting during your flight, or stored safely in your check-in luggage for use once you’ve reached your destination. As a side…

May bank holidays: free things to do with the kids!

Not only is summer fast approaching, but the bright and cheery month of May gives us not one, but two bank holidays for us to enjoy with our friends and family.
If you’re a parent with kids to entertain over the three-day weekends, we’re about to inspire you with a list of fun, family-friendly activities. And do you want to know the best thing about them? They don’t cost a bean!
Picnic (and party) in the park

Parks are the ideal places to spend the day when the sun’s shining, while picnics provide a great opportunity to get together with other families, indulge in some tasty grub and go head-to-head playing some fun-filled games (rounders tops our list). Make it a group effort by each bringing a few dishes and drinks – and if you’re designated DJ, don’t forget to pack a decent PowerBank to boost your speakers when the battery starts to run low!
