Here we are again in the press. Who would have thought a potty company would be regarded as an “Essence of the Cotswolds”! Joking aside, we do feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the UK.
It’s interesting that a high proportion of people who live in our village are entrepeneurs running their own businesses from home. Perhaps the reality of the daily commute in rush hour pushes folk to be creative and think of alternative ways to earn a crust. It is a struggle in these difficult economic times but there is a quality of life trade off that always eases that pain, particularly at this time of year. It would be such a shame to miss the Greatest Show on Earth – the Nativity play!
That said, whenever I go back to my native Bristol I shed a little tear of mourning for my previous life. Imagine being able to pop to the corner shop for a pint of milk – I can only dream! Grass is greener and all that…..
In other news, I’m pleased to report that Pourty is going from strength to strength and is growing rapidly year on year. In 2014 we will be adding to our bathroom range with 2 new innovative products. Exciting times!!
