New Delivery Charges from 1st February 2023

After a period of quite severe inflationary pressure where we have absorbed supplier price increases as far as possible, to ensure we can maintain our service levels we have made the decision to introduce a charging mechanism that more accurately reflects the actual costs incurred in making a lorry delivery to our customers.
As many of you will be aware, these are the first changes to our delivery charges since Madingley Mulch began trading in 1999!
The following changes will be made from 1st February: Our minimum order value eligible for delivery will increase from £40 to £50 Delivery charges will now be applied to all orders to reflect the combined cost of distance travelled and space taken up on the lorry.
Please see our delivery page for more information about the new charges.

Gransden Show – Thanks to All Our Visitors!

Madingley Mulch, Gransden Show

The Gransden Show near Cambridge is an event we really look forward to every year, and this year’s show was a great success, with sunny weather adding to the atmosphere. Many thanks to everyone who came along to our stand – it was great to meet you! Pictured above are Chairman Derek Footman (right) and CEO Steve Lunn at the Show.

Our varied display included some of our most popular products, such as our specialist soil conditioners Denise’s Delight, Tony’s Tonic, and Black Fen Soil. We ran our stand together with our sister company Madmix, who brought along one of their concrete mixers.

Every visitor to the stand received a £5 voucher and we enjoyed welcoming our clients to our hospitality tent for buffet lunches, coffee, drinks and afternoon tea. We also had a lucky dip to raise money for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.

Visitors could examine samples of our sands, gravels, stones and base materials, to get an idea of what we have to offer – ranging from black slate to flamingo stone and gold shingle.

We also really enjoyed looking at other people’s stands and at the great range of attractions at this year’s show. One of the main attractions was the falconry display, including owls. We also loved seeing all the livestock, including the horses, dogs, donkeys, goats, sheep and cattle, as well as the vintage vehicles, cookery and craft displays and so much more.

Now it’s time to pack away our stand, but we are already looking forward to taking part again next year!
