When we asked for new uses of a Gratnells tray I was certainly not expecting this.  Richard Ellis from J.T.Ellis & Co Ltd, one of the country’s leading school furniture manufacturers, has decided that fish storage is the way forward. Pictured is a very tasty looking bass which Richard caught off the south Devon coast over Easter. There also appears to be a couple of mackerel in there too.  He tells me the bass was a solid 5lb, with no word of the one that got away! Keep those uses coming.

The big question answered and it’s not 42.

We all know Gratnells trays are the number one selling educational tray in the world, but why?  To help explain we have launched our Learning Rooms project.  For the rest of the year we will be explaining in detail how school furniture and storage impacts on learning. You don’t have to believe me personally, we have enlisted a proper expert called Roger Cole to do the explaining. There is nothing he does not know about rearranging a classroom.  Hold tight and keep coming back for more.
