Piper Trimmers – Customised Gifts for Petrolheads Welcome Members

Unique Personalised Gifts for Petrolheads Welcome Members

If you (or someone you know) has a collection of lanyards from treasured events, our guess is that they’re hanging from a nail on a wall somewhere, usually the garage.

We’ve teamed up with LW & RW Piper Trimmers of Sparkford to create a unique idea: turn your lanyards into a personalised cushion – for only £49.99!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Count how many lanyards you have
  2. Measure the shortest one(s)
  3. Make a note of anything particular you have in mind (e.g. do you want them in chronological order?)
  4. Identify any aspects that you want to keep in tact (e.g. some lanyards have attachments for grid walks, pit lane access, etc.)
  5. Call Piper Trimmers and tell them you want a Petrolheads Welcome cushion – 01963 441431
  6. They will discuss with you what you are looking for and how long it will take, etc.
  7. Pop all of your lanyards in an envelope and send it recorded delivery (after all you don’t want to lose them!) to LA & RW Piper, Unit 1, Vantage Park, Goodwood Drive, Sparkford, Yeovil, Somerset, BA22 7FQ.
  8. Tell them if it’s a surprise for someone so that they can return it to you in plain packaging.
  9. Receive it back and enjoy!
  10. You will also receive back all of the unused parts.


We are working on a range of ways of using old lanyards, so if you fancy something other than a cushion, talk to Pipers about that too – 01963 441431.

To see a selection of Piper Trimmers’ work on cars, see here.

Inevitably, there are a few terms & conditions (see here), but otherwise we hope you’ll agree that it’s a pretty simple idea… although anyone who’s tried to sew lanyards will know this is a job for the professionals!

Only £49.99!
