A change of dress at Uppark A life-size replica of an 18th-century dress has been unveiled for the first time at Uppark. Inspired by a portrait at the house, the dress is being displayed with the original painting. Work began on the dress two years ago when volunteers from the Solent Decorative and Fine Arts Society approached Uppark to see if there were any projects they could help with. The idea to recreate the dress came from Uppark’s House Manager, Sarah Foster: “It seemed an opportunity not to be missed; the chance to recreate such an amazing dress, and to bring this painting to life.” A group of six have since been cutting, pinning and sewing to create the authentic, life size copy of the dress depicted in the painting by Arthur Devis in 1763. To create the dress the volunteers undertook East Petersfield Community Group are extensive research into the holding a special Clear Up Day on Friday patterns and fabrics of that 16 August.

health kick

From terrific torsos to luscious locks, our complete pre summer holiday guide has everything you need to get you looking and feeling hot this season We all know the dreaded feeling when it comes to donning your bikini. You exercise like crazy, live on a lettuce leaf but there are still some stubborn fat pockets that just won’t shift...until 3D lipo. Curious about this innovative new therapy, I visited the experts at Meon Face to find out more. On arrival Dr Ian Hallam explained the treatment to me. “3D-lipo is probably one of the most advanced treatments of its type in the fight against targeted fat reduction, cellulite and skin tightening. Its three dimensional approach to the problem ensures that you will experience one of the most effective of its kind available today.” Unlike other lipo offerings that simply drain the fat cell temporarily so ultimately don’t work in the long run, the Cavitation with 3D lipo, physically destroys the fat cell permanently. This means that exercise is not required after treatment in order to metabolize the released fat - perfect! The second step of the therapy involves radio frequency skin tightening. This helps to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body. This combination of Radio frequency with 12

Cavitation offers an effective skin tightening application for both face and body. The final step of the treatment is cryolipolysis. This long word can be divided into “cryo” which is cold or freezing, “lipo” which means fat and “lysis” which means to break apart. Therefore when combined, cryolipolysis basically means the destroying fat cells by freezing. During this part of the therapy a vaseline pad is applied to protect the skin before placing a suction mechanism. This then draws out and holds the fatty bulge, extracting the heat out of the tissues.

What does it feel like?

I was quite nervous about experiencing the new technology associated 3D lipo. Thankfully, as I spoke to Ian, these nerves soon disappeared. It was clear to see his knowledge of the machine and his passion to get effective results. I was also pleased that all I had to do was lie back on the couch and the machine did the work. There was no pain, just a slight heat during the cavitation and temporary buzzing in the ears during the therapy due to the frequencies of the machine.

Horray for hay fever sufferers

Leave your makeup bag at home Have you ever thought how nice it would be, not to have to bother with makeup on holiday? With “Semi Permanent Makeup” you can have fun on the beach, in the pool or at the gym and still look glamorous. The Hartley Clinic offer a range of treatments including eyebrow, eyeliner and lip tattooing. The effect can last for between one and three years, depending on skin type, fading over time. Jan Jordan at The Hartley Clinic also offers an annual “Top Up” at a special rate, so you can keep your look as fresh as new.

Using multi vitamin ingredients, the Power Serum provides dramatic skin repair, improving skin texture and tone while the Skin Perfect Primer not only gives luminosity but also protects against sun damage. For further protection Leesa suggested ESPA’s new Mandarin Lip Balm. 100% natural, this delicious lip Balm helps to safeguard your lips from environmental damage and prevent premature ageing.

Using SPF on your skin is a given on holiday but did you know your hair needs protecting too? Rosie Packham-Boyns at Salon Sixteen advises using Redken’s solor extend sun solar screen SPF 12. This unique shampoo uses Soplexyl to prevent UV damage, Mango Oil to replenish with moisture and vibrancy and Creamide to repair and resurface. This allows the shampoo to protects the hair and scalp from UVA/UVB rays, which damage the cuticle, leading to color fading. Other products essential for luscious locks this summer include Redken’s colour extend sun sparkling shield leave-in smoother and colour extend sun after-sun mask. For perfect feet Salon Sixteen also offer OPI gel pedicures. Ideal for holidays OPI Gelcolour goes on like a nail varnish yet performs like a gel, with no more wearing or chipping. Drying immediately the polish gives a flawless mirror finish for up to 14 days whilst strengthening the natural nails.

You might be looking great and holiday ready but we are now being warned of one of the most difficult summers for hay fever sufferers. In the UK it is estimated that one in five people will suffer with hay fever symptoms at some point in their life and symptoms can start at any age. Common symptoms can include, sneezing, itchy eyes and throat, a runny nose and, in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. It can be hard to determine the exact cause of the symptoms and there are many different treatments available; to find out the best course of action for you Spire Portsmouth offer consultations with their team of ear, nose and throat or respiratory consultants.

children, the Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool put a strong emphasis on teaching children the importance of water safety. Manager Viv Mays explains, “You don’t have to be a great swimmer but having a basic swimming ability can save a life. I remember teaching a boy to swim who could just about do a width. I then took him into the deep end and taught him to tread water, telling him to just keep kicking his legs. A few weeks later his parents told me I’d saved his life. On his

holiday he fell off their boat into the water but said “It was okay because I just kicked my legs like Viv told me to.” Group swimming lessons for children take place in the early evening and during the school holidays; these include diving and snorkelling courses. Private lessons are also available for adults and children.

to meet other parents and carers as we recognized that the summer holidays can be stressful and lonely for the adults.” At PACT children can expect lots of toys to play with, craft activities and Playball and Fiddlesticks sessions. The oldest children also have a 40 minute hands on science session and Juniors can choose before the week to do one activity where they can create things together and individually. The sports activity then introduces children new games they may have not experienced. “On the Friday the Junior children show

all they have done to the Messy Church children and parents and the week finishes with an early picnic lunch and bouncy castles!” The “Messy Church” sessions cost £7.50 per child for the week (under 1’s are free) and the Junior sessions are £20 per child for the week.

Colour swings your mood

By Hannah Stephenson

A look at how colour in the garden can affect your mood, as a new survey on happiness is released Are you a person who goes for hot reds and acid yellows or do you prefer a softer palette of pinks, creams and soft blues? The colours you choose for your garden can affect how you feel - and it seems gardeners must be getting it right, as new research from BBC Gardeners’ World magazine shows that gardeners generally are a happier bunch than non-gardeners. Colour psychologist Angela Wright, author of The Beginner’s Guide To Colour Psychology (Kyle Cathie, £12.99), reports: “Different colours affect us in different ways. Red is physically stimulating. It raises our pulse rate and makes us over-estimate the temperature around us, as well as the speed at which time is passing - one reason why red is such a predominant colour in fast-food restaurants.” She adds that what defines whether a colour such as blue is calming or stimulating is the saturation of colour. Strong, bright blues stimulate, while pale blues soothe. Yellow is a positive colour that lifts our spirits and promotes great optimism. “The right yellow makes us feel happy and is the most brilliant of the primary hues, because it’s full of light energy,” says Wright. Green helps to restore us, while the other two main colours in the colour wheel have qualities of their adjacent primary colours orange bringing together the warmth of red and the optimism of yellow, while mauve is unusual in that it combines the fieriness of red and the coolness of blue. 22

Life in Petersfield

LIP41_p22_Gardening.indd 22

The survey shows that that 64% of people like cool flower colours while 36% prefer hot colours. Wright believes it’s possible to work out your preferred palette by analysing your personality. Those who are cool and calm by nature, who prefer understated elegance and have a natural gift for keeping things in proportion, are more likely to favour a garden palette of soft pinks, mauves, purples and pale blues. People with intense energy, with a bossy nature and natural driving force, are more likely to go for rich golds, reds, oranges and

warm purples, while creative and energetic types, who love perfection and whose energy is contained, should favour white, tints of pale blue and green with occasional rich dark contrasts. And those who are in their element in the garden, trying to bring the outdoors indoors with many indoor plants, are more likely to have an unfussy design of garden, with bright single blooms and simple mid-tone colours of sky blue, yellow and bright green. “We are all born with a natural instinct for colour. Don’t over-think it - follow your instincts,” Wright advises.

Sheet Scout Group

Did you know? • Scouting is the largest youth organisation in the world with over 30 million members. • It is a voluntary organisation run by adults that freely give up their time to organise weekly activities, outings and camps for young people. • Robert Baden-Powell created the scouts based on his experiences as an army scout in Africa. • By August 1908 many thousands of boys were calling themselves Boy Scouts, so an official National Organisation was formed.


• By 1910 there were 100,000 boys in Scouting.

From quiz nights to year long camps, there has been no limit to the recent fundraising efforts of the Sheet Scout Group. Here we find out more about this influential group and how we can all give them the much needed help to improve their scout hut Founded back in 1954, the Sheet Scout Group has become a staple of the local community, with over 100 children attending the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts each week. Meeting in Sheet from day one, 18 leaders and two young leaders give their time freely to run the evenings during the week and take the mixture of boys and girls away on camps at the weekends.

Friendship and the children earn challenge badges through the programmes we run to hopefully earn the top award in each section, The Chief Scout Award.” The Scout’s current building is an old workman’s hut from the original A3 bypass and while this building is still in good shape the extension that was built some years later is now in desperate need of replacement. Chris continues, “we have planning permission to replace this extension and add one to the end of the building and store all of our equipment including our canoe trailer which is stored on a farm currently.” To complete the work the scouts will need £135,000, £52,000 of which they have already raised through Fair’s, Quiz Nights, donations and most famously scout, William Grange’s year long camp in the garden, gaining recognition from all over the country and raising £6,000. “We are currently looking for people to head up our fundraising committee or just run events to raise money, no amount is too small.”

Business & Community Awards Teacher of the Year

Beyond the call of duty Known for his ‘bruiser’ appearance and thoughtful teaching manner, local PE teacher, Ricardo Ramshaw is popular with parents and pupils alike. However, on 2 June 2012 Ricardo also showed his tremendous bravery in a fatal shoot out A group of TPS pupils and their teachers had just arrived in Toronto, Canada at the start of their long- awaited half-term sports tour, where the boys were due to play three rugby fixtures and the girls three soccer fixtures. It was a Saturday evening, Tornoto time when the party, led by Ricardo, decided to go to the downtown Eaton Centre to have dinner in the shopping mall food court. 26

Unaware of the danger that awaited them, the pupils queued for food when a lone gunman suddenly appeared and started shooting. As shoppers hid under tables and chaos ensued, one man was shot dead. The victim was the apparent target of the attack but the gunman still continued firing randomly, seriously injuring six more innocent people. During the attack, TPS students were just feet away from the gunman, so with no consideration for his own safety, Ricardo immediately threw the children nearest to him to the ground and shielded them with his own body. Ricardo explains, “It didn’t feel real, it was like a movie. I was incredibly worried but I knew I was responsible for those children and I didn’t want my name on the line.” Ricardo then led the staff efforts to reunite the children who had spilled out onto the Toronto Streets. Remaining calm he went on to co-ordinate the party’s response, including referring the most traumatized children to a Toronto hospital for treatment for shock and liaising with Head Teacher Nigel Poole.

Nigel remembers, “It was clearly a terrifying ordeal for all the children and staff but Ricardo conducted himself with great calm, authority and bravery at all times. It is down to his subsequent determination and that of the other staff that the trip subsequently went ahead when all my instincts were just to bring them all home.” Nigel was so impressed with Ricardo’s efforts that he nominated him for the Life in Petersfield Teacher of the Year Award. A panel of esteemed local judges knew there was no question that Ricardo’s heroic efforts had to be recognised and on 22 March Ricardo was awarded the title of Teacher of the Year. “I felt incredibly proud winning the award. Particularly because the nomination had come from my boss. It meant a lot to be recognised.” If you know a person or organisation within the community that you think deserves a Life in Petersfield Award make your nominations now at Issue 41 July / August 2013

18th Century Vienna comes to Petersfield The Winton Players have announced their autumn production will be Peter Shaffer’s unique costume drama, Amadeus. In 18th Century Vienna, Antonio Salieri, devout and renowned Court Composer, recognises with despair the mediocrity of his own music compared with that of Mozart’s and his burning resentment drives him to destroy the young prodigy. Taking place on the 10, 11 and 12 October, actors, Charlie Essex and John Whitaker fill the roles of Mozart and Salieri respectively and the play is directed by Brenda Adams. Philip Young will be Pianist and Master of

Music. Eileen Riddiford of Winton Players explains, “You may never again listen to Mozart’s music in quite the same way and if you have never, ever, listened to Mozart’s music, then a truly marvellous discovery will be yours.” Early booking is recommended and tickets can be obtained in advance of general sale by calling Mrs Lesley Redstone.Tickets will also be available at the Petersfield Tourist information centre from early September.

Caryn Conran’s unique designs

Local textile designer, Caryn Conran has achieved numerous successes with her unique pieces, selling in outlets such as Harvey Nicholls of London. Here we find out more about Caryn’s inspirations, favourite artist and her top art tip! From the age of seven... I was fascinated by the wings of butterflies and started painting and sketching. I’ve always been inspired by... Nature, colour and pattern, being able to translate this onto fabric and canvas is everything to me. My favourite artist is... Matisse, his use of colour and pattern are sublime. I am a perfectionist.... I find it difficult to be hugely proud of any individual piece, but have just finished a collection inspired by the Geisha girls of the Orient which I am happy with. If I wasn’t a textile designer I’d be... An actress imagining to be someone else must be fun. My art tip is... Choose something that you fall in love with and go for it. My dream customer would be... Someone who falls in love with my work, and getting lovely feedback from them and their friends and who often come back for another piece.

What is your favourite piece?

petersfield museum

My favourite part of the exhibition would have to be all the old photographs of the livestock markets. They really capture the atmosphere of what market day would have been like.

How important are the markets to Petersfield?

From market to market

For centuries Petersfield’s markets and fairs have attracted people from near and far making them a central part of the town’s life To commemorate the cattle market, which closed down 50 years ago this year, Petersfield Museum is presenting a special Market Day exhibition. We’ve been catching up with Petersfield Museum Curatorial Assistant, Katherine West to find out more about this historic exhibition and the role the market still plays today in our town.

What can people expect from the new exhibition? ‘Market Day in Petersfield’ is a narrative of Petersfield’s historic market. Using a selection of artefacts, art, photographs and oral histories, this exhibition commemorates the livestock market as well as celebrating the contemporary Farmers’ markets and Festivals that occupy the Square today. Through themed displays it can be seen how the markets have developed over the years and how the local community have reacted to this. Using first-hand accounts from Petersfield locals, this exhibition aims to bring Petersfield Market to life.

What inspired the exhibition? This year will be 50 years since the last livestock market was held on the Square in Petersfield. Many people still have fond memories of this market which they were

Life in Petersfield

LIP41_p34_Petersfield Museum.indd 34

happy to share with us and we were also able to collect information and opinions on the current markets held in Petersfield. The market itself is inspiration for this exhibition, as it has been so important to the community and to the identity of the town.

When did you start organising the exhibition? The exhibition started to be organised in detail when I joined Petersfield Museum in mid-March this year. Since then, information and artefacts have been brought together into a temporary exhibition by Museum staff, Trustees, volunteers and of course, with the help of the local community.

What feedback have you received so far? The exhibition has received very positive feedback. People have enjoyed reliving their memories of market day and many have commented that they learned something that they did not know before.

What does the exhibition include? The exhibition takes the visitor through the history of Petersfield Market, from its origins in the 1200s to the height of the livestock market to the popularity of today’s weekly markets and specialist Fairs and Festivals. There is an oral history section where visitors can listen to local people’s memories and experiences of the markets and a display case highlighting a selection of objects linked to the livestock market, from leather gaiters worn by a market drover to prize cards won by animals in the Christmas market in 1957. The exhibition also showcases a range of photographs and postcards of the market from the Museum’s collection, as well as prints of work by Stanley Spencer and local artist Flora Twort.

I think the markets are very important to Petersfield. Throughout history they have helped shape the identity of the town and continue to demonstrate a strong feeling of community spirit. The more specialist markets and fairs also bring in visitors from outside the local area and prove to be a popular tourist attraction.

Where do you see the Petersfield markets in the future? If history is anything to go by, Petersfield’s markets will still be going strong in the future. The markets, and those who run them, have adapted over the years and events such as the Petersfield Festivals and Art and Design Markets show that people continue to innovate to stay relevant and attract new audiences. At the same time, Petersfield retains the traditional charm and character which makes it so popular. Petersfield Museum, 01730 260756

I went to the market and.... “I like the fact that Petersfield has so many different markets. They all have a different feel to them, from the comforting bustle of the weekly markets to the sense of event and excitement of the seasonal Petersfield Festivals. It is also quite obvious that many people in Petersfield love having a market. Having worked on this exhibition I have found that it is something people enjoy talking about and can spark off animated conversation. As one of the stall holders said, Petersfield is a “market town, rather than a town with a market”. Katherine West “We, the residents of Petersfield and the surrounding villages attend the market as a must at least once a week, either on Wednesdays or Saturdays – To be highly recommended to everyone.” Linda Cowley “The Market helps to make Petersfield the unique and special place that it is. It is a fine antidote to the dominance of supermarkets in our lives. It brings a wealth of colour, sound, smells and tastes. It is part of our history. Long may it continue.” June Leach “When I first moved to Petersfield, one thing that struck me was how lucky the town was to have such a variety of different markets throughout the year. I particularly love the farmers market on the first Sunday of every month. I think the variety is fantastic and the fact that all the goods are produced locally is great.” Amanda Harwood Issue 41 July / August 2013

The scheme is available to homeowners in the UK that are aged between 55 and 95 that are looking for a way of accessing extra funds to pay for care to be provided for them in their own home, rather than go into a nursing or residential care. The equity release scheme will allow a large amount of flexibility in not only how the money is drawn down but also that there is no red tape as to how the money is spent.

Gabi said; “this will allow us to concentrate on providing the very highest standards of good old-fashioned service, knowing that our customers do not have the financial worries which can all-too-often burden people in old age”.

petersfield plans

Petersfield plans

Town Mayor, Peter Marshall

The Government’s Localism Bill allows Local Communities to put together a vision, and a master plan, for their communities which, following approval by the government inspector and ratification through a referendum by the community, will have the force of law and will become the definitive document by which planning applications will be judged. Town Mayor, Peter Marshall explains, “This is a major change from the previous “top down” approach adopted by District planning teams and incorporated in the District’s “Local Plan”. Petersfield Town Council has taken the opportunity to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Petersfield with the support offered by

the South Downs National Park Planning Authority and the perceived need for Petersfield to have a broadly based master plan for its future development, and to address head on any controversial planning applications which do not appear to have taken into account the views of the community.” The summer of 2012 saw an executive team come together with a target referendum date of June 2014. “It took several months to establish a team that represented the community and to decide how best to proceed. We have learned from other communities that are going through the same process. The key to a successful plan is to ensure that the themes are clearly identified, that the community is fully engaged in the process, and that the ideas are driven by the community and represent the views of the community rather than the views of councillors or the executive.We have identified eight themes to be considered as part of the Neighbourhood Plan.” One of the most important, and most controversial, themes covered in the plan is housing. Like all communities, Petersfield is required to build a certain number of houses over the next 15 years. That number is negotiated between the government inspector and the planning authorities. With the plan the community can have an input to the process by proposing, through the Neighbourhood Plan, where the houses should go, the mix, the facilities provided,

A recently passed bill could mean big changes for Petersfield. We’ve been finding out more from Petersfield Town Mayor and Executive Committee member, Peter Marshall any agreed policy on affordable housing. Other themes that will be covered in the plan include the amount of land allocated for Business and Employment Generation; land available for Retail and Shopping facilities, whether small retail or supermarkets; the role of Tourism in Petersfield; the requirement and nature of Community Facilities; Protection of the Conservation area and the Built Environment; the Natural Environment and Green spaces; and Traffic and Transportation through the town including facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, car parking and public transport. As part of the Plan’s consultation and engagement process there will be open evenings, market stalls, questionnaires, community presentations and workshops. A website and interactive map will also be available where views can be posted. “This process is well underway and valuable feedback has already been received. However, with 14000 residents in Petersfield we have a long way to go to reach everyone.” The draft plan is due to be prepared early in 2014 and a final version will be presented to the Government Inspector in April 2014 with a referendum by the people of Petersfield in June 2014.

Question time

We posted your questions about the Neighbourhood Plan to executive committee member Richard Besant. Here is what he had to say... How will the Plan affect me? The Plan is giving the people a voice planning how petersfield develops in the next 15 years, everyone is affected by development, whether it’s a new building next door or a facility providing play opportunities for your children. What has it achieved so far? We have created a small group of volunteers and started engaging with individuals and groups across Petersfield. We have created a website and interactive map and people have been able to post their views and comments. We’ve also looked the conclusions and suggestions from important documents like the Petersfield Town Design Statement, Town Health Check and Petersfield Plan. How long will the Plan take? Two-three years depending on availability of evidence / data / information. 38

Life in Petersfield

LIP41_p38_petersfield plan.indd 38

Why is the Plan so important? Petersfield is a Market Town in a National Park, although National Parks are not places for unrestricted housing they are required to provide affordable housing for local people, given the very rural nature of the vast majority of the National Park there will be a need to provide housing in the more populated areas of the park where facilities, services and access to transport routes already exist, therefore Petersfield will need to provide some housing for local people, this makes the NP even more important. Has anything similar to the Plan ever happened before? There have been other documents like the Petersfield Town Design Statement and Town Health Check and those documents feed into the Neighbourhood Plan. However, those important documents did not have any legal weight, they were only used as guidance information by

the Planning Authority. Never before has a community led plan being given such legal weight and power in the planning system, that is the difference with the Neighbourhood Plan. What are the next steps for the Plan? Continue gathering information on people’s issues, challenges and aspirations for the future. Analyse the findings. Assess this in the context of data and evidence, as well as what the wider plans mean for Petersfield. Prepare some options of how the plan can deal with the issues and meet the housing needs of Petersfield, present these options to the community to discover what the preferred option is. Test this preferred option with an independent examiner then take the plan to the community in a referendum to vote to agree the plan or not. Issue 41 July / August 2013

Fashion and Textile students at the university were asked to design a wedding dress based on the impressionism-Monet’s gardens of Giverny for the chance to win £200 and work experience at Elegance and Grace. After much deliberation the judges, wedding dress designer, Chenka Williams and Elegance and Grace owner, Michele Wheeler narrowed the 30 entries down to six shortlisted students. The students were then asked to present their work before the

judges made their final decision. In the end Emily Streatfelid was chosen as the winner for the way in which she stuck to the brief and her technical talents. Michele explains, “I wanted to bring together the Academic riguer of the University, alongside bringing our top designer from Ritva Westenius, from the creative and commercial world of bridal down from London, working with us a an Independent Bridal Retailer from Petersfield to develop and assist students to give them inspiration.” Elegance and Grace, 07787526305

Council tax changes Landlords, developers and second homeowners need to be aware of important changes in the way Council Tax is to be charged. The changes, which came into effect on 1 April, affect properties that have previously been given exemptions or discounts.

properties should be particularly aware that the discount which was previously 100% has been reduced to 50% for the first six months and to zero for over six months but less than two years. He goes on to say that this makes it really important to avoid lengthy void periods between tenancies. Developers should also be aware that homes requiring or undergoing structural alterations or

Seven new

award wonders 

In at number seven we’ve got our new and exciting entertainment. Over the years we’ve enjoyed a range of fantastic Petersfield acts at the awards, with everyone from soloist Sertari to the adorable Petersfield Academy of Dance. This year is looking like our best line up yet but there are still places to be filled. So if you’re a comedian, singer, dance act or just an all round entertainer, we want to hear from you! Simply get in touch by emailing or phoning 01420 477 272.

On to six and its all about our new Lifetime Achievement Award. The first of our three new for 2014 categories, the Lifetime Achievement Award recognises people who have made an outstanding contribution to the local community for 20 years or more. Do you know someone who has worked in the community who deserves shouting about? Do you know someone who has always put their community first? Big or small, we want to hear about your local achievements.

Fab at five we’ve got our fantastic food! 2013 saw the first two-course sit down meal served at the awards courtesy of Inside Catering. Following on from his raving reviews, Paul at Inside Catering’s mind is already bubbling away marvellous menu ideas - sure to tickle your taste buds!

Sticking with the food theme, at four we’ve got the changes to our eatery category. In the past there has been one category for pubs, restaurants and cafes. But this year as there are so many great places to eat and drink in Petersfield we thought it was about time we split the category in two. With one category for Best Pub/Bar and another for Best Restaurant/Café you can now recognise your favourite restaurant AND your favourite pub - perfect!

Into the top three and it’s all about employees. Another new category for 2014, the Employee of the Year category is for that special member of the team. Do you have an employee that always puts that extra effort in? Made an outstanding achievement? Let us know!

Time for two and it’s our new Customer Service category. One for those who believe the customer is always right, this award recognises the restaurants, retailers or anyone who goes that extra mile to give you service with a smile!
