Spring Fair, NEC Birmingham

Gosh we are tired today. Yesterday we got up at 4.30am, have not done that for a long time and it reminded me of the early mornings I used to have to do when I worked for The Body Shop and had to catch a flight at some unearthly time in the morning.

But with great excitement we set off to the Spring Fair at the NEC, Birmingham. Traffic was ok even the M25 was moving, the snow was all around but the roads pretty clear. Had a great day meeting my contacts from existing suppliers and finding some great new ones. There is so much choice but with the ethical criteria we do have a limited amount of suppliers to choose from which I think is probably a nice position to be in when you are faced with 300,000 new product launches at the show.

When we left about 5pm I was happy in the knowledge that we were going to have some very exciting new products coming for Spring Summer so keep an eye on the website or sign up to the newsletter and we will let you know when new stock is in. 

Had a good trip back but no rest for me it was straight on to rehearsals for a show I am doing in May with Littlehampton Musical Comedy Society.

Thank you to my very good friend Andy and his wife Ali for giving me a lift to Birmingham and back.

Cheers Gary, one of the things that I didn't rlleay cover in the powerpoint (except in proving evidence) is ensuring QUALITY of work. It's no use if a bunch of well-intentioned churches do terrible work!Sounds like you're building a mentoring service there. Let me know more!
