I have no regrets in life. That’s a lie, I bloody hate these sandbags.

At a generous estimate they’re 30% reconstituted with Gaffa tape, that’s on the rise, I’ve owned colanders with fewer holes.

We bought these before our first mobile event, one of the many last minute items we scrambled to source before selling to the public. I was working at my old job, my last free weekend not the most productive with a 19 pub stag do yomp across the Lake District and each evening consumed ticking off the tasks to get us up and running.

I knew the proper way to fill the sandbags, to line each section with a thick plastic bag, pour sand into each, keeping it contained and secure. But in haste, and with the weather forecast threatening to blow our marquee away, we dumped the sand straight into the bags and hoped for the best.


If you ever see two feet protruding from the back of a yellow Land Rover, muffled curses emanating from the bowels of the van, chances are that’ll be me. Typically I’m lying face down, pinned under a hot oven, trying to wrestle a limp, slug of a sandbag free as it ejects sand from at least 4 orifices. Half a tonne of oven bolted to the chassis doesn’t make the clean up operation any easier.

From that point onwards we vowed we’d always do things the right way, first time. If a job’s worth doing and all that.

  7. Wow, sandbags are a lifesaver when it comes to dealing with floods! I can't tell you how grateful I am to have had them during the last storm that hit our area. They were incredibly easy to set up and provided a much-needed barrier against the rising water. Not only did they help protect our home, but they also prevented any water from seeping into our basement. The durability of these sandbags was impressive as well; even with the force of the water pushing against them, they held up remarkably well. I highly recommend having sandbags on hand for anyone living in flood-prone areas. They truly are a simple yet effective solution to safeguarding your property from water damage.
