Selected stores of Waitrose are offering trailers to attach to bicycles so you can transport your shopping home by bike rather than by car or bus etc. Waitrose also offer free loans of wine glasses, goblets and champagne flutes and if your recipe calls for it - fish kettles! These were all advertised on the Cardiff Pontprennau site but check with your local store to see if they offer them too.
'Cycle trailers for loan
This branch [Cardiff Pontprennau] is introducing cycle trailers to help customers transport their shopping home by bike. Equipped with large canvas shopping bags, the trailers will be loaned out free of charge to any Waitrose customers who wish to use them.
Please register for the scheme at the welcome desk, a special bracket will then be attached beneath your bicycle saddle to enable you to clip the trailer onto your bike. You can reserve the trailer before you start shopping and collect it as you leave the store.
No deposit will be taken to loan a trailer and customers are requested to return it to the store within 3 working days.'http://www.waitrose.com/branches/branchdetails.aspx?uid=457
