| Our Team is getting BIG |

We love putting on events, so far this year we’ve had the Sample Sale, AOH at Junkyard Dogs and Craft Party and we have plans for more events before EML at Christmas. This means that our turnover is increasing and although none of our events make a profit and we still don’t pay any of our strong team of volunteers, that we are out growing our ‘clubs and societies’ label and need to move forward to develop the team.

We just wanted to let you know that we are working on this behind the scenes.
