How Did It Start?

Director Mike Barnes comments: "At a local parish council meeting there was much debate about the vexed question of obtaining quotations for the repair of the village notice board. The board, which was not very old, was exhibiting all the familiar symptoms; condensation, stained pinboards, sticking locks, etc. I decided there and then that there must be a better way. What was needed was consistent quality, reliably delivered”.

Thus was born the first Greenbarnes notice board. The idea was simple. This was a scene recurring in council meetings all over the country. Local joiners were reinventing the wheel with a series of "one-off" boards. Surely it would be better for someone to consider the perennial problems, design a solution to meet the criteria and manufacture the resulting product for wider application?

Over a quarter of a century later, with countless examples installed across the UK, this product has been refined as a result of our widespread experience to form the basis of many of the boards offered here. In short, it was a simple idea which has subsequently been much copied, but never bettered.

The Noticeboard Shop was set up to afford customers old and new the ability to buy straightforward products quickly and simply online. However, even though you are buying online, you may rest assured that you are dealing with a real and longstanding company. Orders placed via the-noticeboard-shop.co.uk are treated with the same care and dedication that we have shown to all our customers for the last 20+ years.
