And just to leave you with a picture , our latest staff work hard checking out our Smallholders Soaps! This is Orville a cheeky hen (yep a girl) who is looking after the peppermint section. Don't worry she doesn't deliver to the B&B's or Hotels!
Well it's been a while I must admit, but that's because we have been busy making new products and lots more of our current products :). The guest soaps for B&B's and Hotels have really taken off - we introduced the Calender Club for our guest soaps where B&B's etc receive a set amount of soap bars every month. It works really well so everyone knows their delivery date and no one ever runs short :)
There are many new products to come and all will be revealed shortly so keep checking back to find out more.
All for now

Border Counties Steam and Vintage Show in Monmouth

We recently took our products to the Border Counties Steam and Vintage Show in Monmouth and the lovely Jackie Hancock from The Poultry Gift Shop (www.thepoultrygiftshop.co.uk) very kindly took some photographs of us there (and the products !) so thought we would share them here with you:) This was the fourth year running we have been to this show and after last years torrential downpours we were ever so pleased that the weather was very fine and sunny. Roll on next year!

Sheppard House in Newent

We quite often are asked to supply raffle prizes for charities or good causes, where we can we do try to accommodate however we are asked almost daily for prizes so we can’t always say yes as much as we would like to. Recently we were approached by Sheppard House in Newent for a raffle prize for their Easter extravaganza, I said yes as Newent is very close to where we live and close to The Bubble. I decided to deliver the prize myself as I was intrigued about Sheppard House and wanted to find out a bit more about them. When I arrived I found a Easter Egg Hunt in full swing with lots of excited children (and adults) running around squealing with delight as they found an egg, the atmosphere was great and everyone even the volunteers were enjoying themselves it was great to see. The Newent Association for the Disabled (Sheppard House Day Centre) was founded in 1981 by Trudie Sheppard, MBE, who is herself disabled, and is the umbrella organisation for Sheppard House, Dial-A-Ride, the Charity Shop and the One Stop Shop. Available funds at that time were just two pounds, and in the early days the Association was a small club held in the local Community Centre. The past decade has seen the facility develop, providing cooked meals, art and craft workshops, entertainment, competitions, computer courses, theatre visits, countryside trips and escorted holidays to specialised holiday centres.
At the present time, approximately 175 disabled and elderly people attend Sheppard House weekly and in excess of 35,000 people use the Dial-A-Ride service annually. So as you see it’s certainly a worthwhile charity and I certainly intend to help them out again in the future. I would like to say a big thank you to Pat and Anne for getting in touch with me in the first place and I hope your fundraising helps you achieve your dreams.

Great Start to the Weekend

Well over at soap central, the chickens are out and about searching for those slugs and wondering when those rabbits (fluffy and flopsy) are going to arrive (Tuesday!) The cats are chilling in the sunshine and most importantly there is lots of soap curing and candle pouring being completed. It's been all go the last few months and all our hard work is starting to pay off. The corporate gifts are really taking off, people are really enjoying the personalisation of our products which make them suitable for just about any occasion! If you take a look at www.blenheimphotography.blogspot.com you will see what we mean, the lovely Jan is very pleased with her personalised candle and is putting them to good use. Anyway must run as still lots to do.
