I have posted about this previously, but last week was the actual event. Women across Norfolk had been chosen by the public and then an esteemed panel of judges and The Edp to become one of Norfolk's top 100 Most Inspiring Women.
It was a truly inspiring day, as you can imagine with some very talented and clever women (excluding my self)! I was placed on a table with women who included the UK's first female firefighter, high profile stylist, Chrissi Rix, head teacher of Norwich School for Girls, Kirsty Von Malaise and others.
Wine was poured and food was readily consumed in the stunning venue of Brasted's. Delightful chatter and a few tears shed as women came together.
Thank you to Sophie Stainthorpe, The EDP's head of content for initially nominating me!
The 100 Most Inspiring Norfolk Women newspaper articles can be googled.

I was contacted by OFSTED outstanding school, Thorpe St Andrew to come up with a project to help invigorate their students. They have removed textiles from the curriculum and they have asked me to work with them to re inspire this area. I have always maintained that the arts are incredibly important for both budding minds and adults. Minimising mental health implications, helping with dexterity, especially in terms of Alzheimer's. Creativity delights us, it teaches us skills in which to mend a broken item, it can innovate and it can help the mind see in other formats.
Look out for this exciting project commencing in November!

We always have a great time exhibiting among various other fabulous bridal suppliers at the official, Bride Magazine Wedding Show. This is held twice a year at the Norfolk Showground with it being the largest wedding show in the area. Our themes were peacock blues and sea greens. The gorgeous flower girl dress was made by my partner's sister, Tara Martin - Miluca.

Following on from the great news in the EDP Newspaper!
I’m on the campaign to reduce the landfill implications within the footwear industry with 330 million pairs in the uk alone manufactured a year with most of these ending up in landfill. One pair takes 50 years to decompose with gases and toxins released into our atmosphere due to the manmade materials in use. The way forward is upcyling. Transforming the pairs you don’t wear or old shoes into new designs. Putting off the landfill destiny for another few years! Fast fashion is an issue.
