Clocks Home & Garden maintain Boro relationship
Jane Kemp-Buglass and Neil Buglass have made the move to back Boro after following the game in the town for a number of years.
Clocks, who recently changed from Clock Handyman, are based on Victoria Road in the town and offer everything to solve maintenance problems in the home and garden.
Jane explained: "On a drunken night out a couple of years ago passions were shared and hearts and souls laid open. Now do not misunderstand. This was purely a chance meeting of us and Boro chairman Trevor Bull in a local Indian restaurant.
"We were sharing and slurring that we appreciated the times we spent at football as after the stresses of business, watching our local team was a magic tonic. We were with friends who agreed that they always came away from a match feeling grateful football has come home again.
"Our love of football started before we took over Clock Handyman from my parents in 2013. Regular attendance at the Athletic ground from frosty winter afternoons to sunny Chelsea challenges form part of our early courting memories.
"Neil has played football since he was knee high to a grasshopper. He says he played football before he could walk. Which is probably true due to the damage he did to his knees.
"Fitness and health are other great beneficiaries of the team coming home again. We see all generations of the community at the ground and on family days we can see the youngest of fans and players engage in fitness activities.
"We jumped at the chance to be part of what we view to be a fantastic asset to the town. Seeing our business board in the backdrop of the teams photo library for the past two years, has made us proud to be part of our local club.
"As board sponsors we attended the first community meeting held by the club and the enthusiasm and passion shown by all the people there, at all levels of involvement, was totally contagious. We felt some form of sponsorship would be a good way to show our love of the club and hopefully support the ambitious plans for their future.
"As with the club our business is going through a transition. We are not moving but the name of the business is evolving to better represent the wide range of Home and Garden products in store. So along with the DIY, Workwear for the Handy/Trade people we have shorted the name to Clock’s and to clarify we sell things for Home and Garden.
"Sponsoring the new kit shorts was a perfect fit for us as we can, as with our business mantra of Clocks, say we've got all the essentials covered."« Back to news
