Turtle Mat, creators of the original machine washable, dirt trapping doormat, will be at RHS Chelsea Flower Show with a stand-alone exhibit for the first time this year showcasing the ‘best of British’ design.Turtle Mat's brand new Heritage Peony design


The Turtle Mat stand will take on a fresh and colourful theme with a palette of zingy yellow, purple and white shades inspired by the gardens and Cotswold landscape where the business is based. A potting shed and trellising add to the country cottage feel and the use of yellows reflect the local fields of gold from spring through to summer. The walls of the stand will be clad in Turtle Mat's stunning design ranges - many with a floral theme.


With 2012 set to be a very ‘British’ year, and as excitement grows over Jubilee and

Royal themed products, the stand will showcase a selection of new mat designs from their British themed collections with Imperial War Museum (IWM) and Union Flag ranges, as well as more classic designs from the Historic Royal Palaces and Royal Horticultural Society collections.


The company is looking forward to being a part of one of the most iconic and quintessentially English summer shows where it can showcase the unique British flavour that the brand offers to both customers and retailers. And, in this celebratory year, they will unveil the latest RHS design, Heritage Peony, inspired by a vintage seed catalogue held within the RHS’s Lindley Library archive.


The mat comes in a colour way of pinks and peaches on a soft green background and will retail at £49.95.


Commercial Director Susan Leaver says: “The RHS always provides a wonderful resource of inspirational material giving us the opportunity to develop truly unique designs. We have partnered with the RHS for over five years and have been delighted with the success of the collection. Chelsea gives us the platform to not only showcase the product but to meet with customers and we are really looking forward to the event. The Turtle Mat stand will be located at site WA12 (Western Avenue).

London breakups lead to nine-friend loss

15 May 2012 at 12:40

People in London ending a long-term relationship lose an average of nine friends, a new study reveals.


Researchers also found that 46 per cent of people in London felt isolated after a breakup, regardless of how supportive their remaining friends and family were. Twenty six per cent actually admitted to staying in a relationship longer than they really wanted to, worried about the effect that breaking up would have on mutual friendships.


In fact, the study shows it is not only mutual friendships that suffer following the end of a long-term relationship. Of the nine friends lost on average, three were people known from before the relationship.


Chad Schofield, Founder of, which commissioned the report, says even when relationships end amicably it can have an impact on friendships. He explains: “It isn’t always about friends actively siding with one person or another - it can be much more subtle than that. In London, 91 per cent of people reported that feelings of ‘awkwardness’ played a major part in friends simply drifting away.”


The full national study involved a total of 2,000 men and women of all ages who have recently split from a long-term partner. Further findings indicated that 32 per cent of people in London have some regrets about their relationship coming to an end because of the effect it has had on friendships. 


Four out of ten respondents said that, on the whole, friends were very supportive after their breakup. However, 46 per cent felt that unless somebody was actively going through a similar situation they could not understand how it felt.


“It comes down to the difference between sympathy and empathy,” Chad Schofield continues. “No matter how supportive friends and family are, they can’t wave a magic wand to make the painful feelings of loneliness and isolation go away. In fact, inviting you to dinner or encouraging you to socialise before you are ready can simply reinforce the fact that you now have to do things alone. At, we find most people say it is really helpful to connect and interact with others who are in a similar circumstance to themselves. It’s not really about how well people know you, but about how well they understand what you are going through. They can also advise on avoiding potential pitfalls that you may not have thought of – such as joint bank accounts being frozen or the expense of legal representation.” is a free-to-use, discreet and impartial online support network for people who have lost a long-term partner. It provides access to services, articles and forums tailored for people who are newly single or anticipating closure of their relationship.
