On Sunday 10 June, we'll be supporting our own triathlete in training, Louise, who is taking part in the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds with the amazing Stephan & his daughter Chloe Couture, who has cerebral palsy.

CarSafe is based in an unbranded, rural, state of the art storage for classic and performance vehicles. The facility has often been described as more of a car showroom than a storage facility, but the service and environment reflect the very high standards expected by their clients.
CarSafe offers professional and secure vehicle storage solutions, operated by a passionate and experienced team of professionals.
We're excited to be nearing the end of the construction of our brand new factory.
With the launch planned for April, we'll be doubling our production capacity; which means we'll be able to protect more cars, caravans and motorbikes than ever before!
In August, Steve Jackson, editor of Nacelle, The Triumph Owners Club MCC came to visit us with his fabulous 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R.
Steve came all the way from Cheshire so we could take a pattern of his bike for both Prestige indoor and Stormshield outdoor covers (and also so we could have a natter, a few cups of tea and talk about a hat...).
We're already immensley proud of our hard work, first class products and family heritage here at Specialised Covers, but it was an honour to be selected as a 'Specialist Manufacturing Representative' for The Parliamentary Review.
Last week, we were invited to Westminster to join a small number of other outstanding organisations to see the very first copies of the printed review, and listen to key speakers sharing knowledge and insight into the business and public sector.
As the only caravan cover manufacturer invited to cover the brand new models, we're delighted to announce that we're now a 'Trusted Partner' of Coachman Caravans.
After patterning the new caravans, we visited Coachman last week where we covered the brand new 2018 Coachman models, including the VIP range, with their new Tow Pro + and Tow Pro Elite towing protectors.
If you have a rare, unusual or bespoke car, caravan or motorcycle and can't seem to find your vehicle on our website, don't worry! In the first instance, simply give us a call and we'll double check our patterns.
Over the years, we have built up a database of thousands of cover patterns, ranging from vintage to brand new models, so it's more than likely we do have yours.
We're extremely proud of what we do here at Specialised Covers and the high quality of our products.
Our range of Patented Tow Pros are designed and manufactured by our highly skilled team in order to ensure caravans are protected from dirt and stones whilst being towed, on the open road.
At Specialised Covers we strongly believe that helping young people learn about industry and business is important, and getting a chance to gain that all important experience, is essential.
So, we were delighted to welcome Horsforth High School pupil, Emily Shaw to our team this week who has had the opportunity to work across several departments and find out a little more about what we do.
We're delighted to announce our expansion, with the recent purchase of the building neighbouring our existing premises on Dockfield Road, Shipley.
There's a lot of work to be carried out in the coming months (hard hats and High Vis jackets at the ready!), but by the Autumn we'll have an additional, state-of-the-art, factory which will be home to some of the most experienced tailors, designers and seamstresses in the UK.
The Bloodhound Project is a global engineering adventure using a 1000mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The project centres on Bloodhound SSC, a supersonic car that is designed not only to go faster than the speed of sound (supersonic) but to go over 1,000mph, with the ability to cover a mile in just 3.6 seconds (approximately 4.5 football pitches!).
We're delighted to be working with Keighley College, who launched their brand new Textile Academy on Friday.
