It's Father's Day in the UK on the 18th June 2017
It's Father's Day in the UK on the 18th June 2017 (it's always the 3rd Sunday in June).
It does seem a bit of a poor relation to Mother's Day, so here's you chance to make it special.
By the way, if you live in Belgium, you'd better get a move on, as Father's Day is celebrated in Belgium on the 11th of June this year.
Here are a few suggestions from us to make the day special.

Cast Iron Outdoor/Garden Hob with Grid
Cast iron charcoal bowl with British oak legs. Black iron cooking grid with Netherton logo. It's simple and quick to light.
Just fill it with lump charcoal, pour on 150ml (5 fluid oz) of barbecue lighter fluid, replace cast iron grid, stand back and light.
Wait for 20 to 30 minutes until the charcoal has become grey/white and then start to cook or barbecue.
You can now barbecue for up to four hours on a single fill of charcoal.
Or add one of our cast iron bowls or tagines, and then cook dishes in 3 to 4 hours which will stay hot for around 5 to 7 hours.
This leaves you plenty of time to relax and entertain.
It's great for family parties, a quiet evening in the garden watching the sunset or delicious warming food during a fireworks party.
