First off, our long-time client The City Rooms, Leicester, is celebrating a 10 year anniversary as one of the premier venues in our fair city! It comes in a year in which we’re celebrating our Decade of Design. Basic maths tells us then, that we’re the same age. The City Rooms have been with us through thick and thin and have been one of our most valued clients – so we’d like to wish the whole gang a happy tenth birthday!
Our clients at IKANO Bank had great success with the Robin Hood Marathon on September 25th. Plus, IKANO ambassador Richard Whitehead got his second Paralympic gold medal in the 200 meters at the Rio games, contributing to one of the most successful medal hauls team GB have ever received from the Paralympics.
On Friday 9th September, the prestigious Niche Business Awards took over the Athena for a night of awards, food and a couple of drinks. Our friends at Soft Touch Arts bagged the Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders Award, Emma Brown Hair was awarded the prize for Health and Beauty and North Bar and Kitchen grabbed Best New Business…as well as hitting the dizzy heights of becoming the top restaurant in Leicester on Trip Advisor!
Our hosts for the Niche Awards were our client Steamin’ Billy – who sponsored one of the award categories. The Steamin’ Billy gang had their own success earlier this month, picking up the Small Business of the Year award at the East Midlands Chamber Leicestershire Business Awards.
So, there you have it – September isn’t all that bad after all. It might be raining and a little colder, but at least our courageous clients are flying the flag!
