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.

Looking Forward to the Gransden Show


Gransden Show, agricultural show Cambridge

It’s nearly time for the annual Gransden Show – a major fixture in Cambridgeshire’s calendar which we at Madingley Mulch love to support.

Our staff are already hard at work preparing our stand for the event, which takes place on Saturday, September 30. It always draws large crowds and this year promises to be no exception, with a packed programme of events on offer throughout the day. 

As garden mulch suppliers based locally near Cambridge, we have strong links with the show, and have exhibited there for a number of years. In 2015 our Indian sandstone paving display helped us win the trophy for the show’s best large trade stand.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at our stand, with £5 vouchers handed to all visitors. Our friendly, professional staff will be able to advise you about all the wide range of gardening products we stock, from soil conditioners and compost to decorative stones to paving slabs to fencing and turf, so pop along and visit us!

Organised by the Gransden and District Agricultural Society, this year will be the 115th show. Originally a ploughing and drainage competition, the show was officially founded in 1891 and the list of events expanded to include some of the agriculture and livestock classes which are still popular today.

This year’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever. It will include the core classes of cattle, including some rare breed categories, plus sheep and pigs. There will be plenty of fun for all the family as attractions will include a Punch and Judy Show and the first ever donkey display. This year will also see the show’s first poultry classes.

Entry will be £10 for adults, £5 for 11 to 18-year-olds and accompanied under-11s will be admitted free.  The gates to the show, on Caxton Road, Great Gransden, will open at 9am. To find out more about the show, click on the link.
