Well, this year has certainly been one of change for us! We’ve had a name makeover to Good Life Industries, taken on more staff (and lost a couple), started a new title – Gower Life and moving production into new offices in Cowbridge. All exciting stuff!
While working from home has its advantages – like being able to work in your onesie (I’m not ashamed to admit it!), and not having to apply the warpaint every day (still holding my hand up!), the downsides are that there’s always washing to put in the machine, always a oor to be mopped and always a pot of stew on the go to feed the hungry workers (not that I mind but I am busy you know guys!).
As I write this, we’re not in the offices yet but we can’t wait. It’s nothing flash. Just two rooms for now for production but it’s a big leap for us and Cowbridge isn’t too shabby a place to work from is it?
We have welcomed our new salesperson, Nigel into the fold. He will be working with us on Vale Life (and bits of City Life). He is fitting in really nicely and I’m sure he will bring lots of experience and new ideas to the mix.
Penarth Fashion Week is shaping up really nicely. We’re so thrilled to have been chosen as the sole media sponsor for this event, which I’m sure will be a huge success and one which will grow year on year and will bring additional focus on the vibrant town of Penarth.
I hope you enjoy reading what our independent businesses have to offer throughout the whole of the Vale. If you want to promote what you do in our winter issue (out in November), please get in touch, we’d love to help you in our own inimitable way.
