The article presents information on the developments in the home furnishing industry. It is reported that it was a bad week for a Welsh Furniture maker called Daffyd. For as one of the few Daffyd's in the village of Llanddewi-Brefi he is liable to have the micky taken out of him now that the BBC comedy "Little Britain" has returned to the screens. The FTBA's second annual karting championship was hotly contested by industry speed lovers and raised more than pound 6,500 for the furnishing trades' charity. David lmrie, of sponsor Furniture Village, presented the Fastest Individual Driver trophy to David Julich of Multimaster.
