Ian Hodgett
Furniture and Barbecue Buyer
Ian has worked for Hayes since leaving school, spending the majority of this time in the outdoor furniture department and like Keith has an in-depth knowledge of Hayes customers. He also has the same ethos at heart when buying garden furniture; will it be an acceptable price and quality? He also takes into account the changing fashions and environmental considerations, such as using recycled materials, being recyclable at the end of its life and is the timber sourced from forests which have a re-planting policy. Ian’s other passion is barbecuing which resulted in Hayes having one of the few Weber Worlds within The Barbecue Shop here in store. The Barbecue Shop has gained a reputation as being one of the best places in north west England to obtain all your BBQ requisites as it stocks everything you need apart from the food. Some of our best sellers are the Angus & Oink and Traeger rubs and sauces which can elevate your food from the ordinary to the absolutely divine. Ian regularly posts on Instagram the results of his grilling labours and it’s not just the usual barbecue fare of bangers and burgers. If you head to the Hayes Garden World Youtube channel you can view almost 200 videos Ian has appeared in with top BBQ chef Richard Holden. These videos show you that there is no limit to the creative dishes you can cook on your BBQ, whether it’s fuelled by gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellets. Almost all the dishes are simple and well within the capabilities of any barbecuer, they range from the Christmas dinner to puddings to vegetarian dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answered by our expert 'Ian Hodgett'
Yes, parasol bases are essential in order to prevent damage to your parasol and property. If the wind picks up, it can lift a parasol several metres into the air, however a parasol base will ensure your parasol will be securely weighted down to the ground.   
The easiest heavy duty parasol bases to move around your garden will be the hollow plastic base on wheels. You are able to fill these up with either sand or water and then empty them if you need to move your parasol base. Bear in mind that when you are filling your plastic parasol base, if you fill it with sand, it will be harder to empty than water. 
No, all of our parasol bases are fully weatherproof and they can be left outdoors all year round. However, if your parasol base is positioned under a tree, we would recommend covering it so that it looks pristine for longer.
The weight of a parasol base is crucial to its stability and as a general rule, a base should be approximately 20-30 kg for a standard-sized parasol. However, a heavier base offers better resistance against strong winds. If the parasol fits through the centre of a table, a lighter base will suffice as the table will provide some stability. However, the design of a parasol will also determine the weight of the base and cantilever parasols will need substantially more weight in order to provide a counterbalance.  If you need any further information when choosing the weight of your parasol base, you can contact us on 015394 82333.
