We win Website of the Year 2019

Over the summer we were delighted to win the award of 'Website of the Year' at the SME Business awards in Hertfordshire.  Little did we know that this would lead to an invitation to the national finals at Wembley Stadium on the 6th of December 2019!

As December drew near, it became clear that on a national level, we were up against stiff competition, including websites of businesses who actually designed websites.  It was therefore a huge surprise to be given the gold award on the night. 

The judges said:

“This website showed excellent, clear photography and strong consistent branding with a clear brand palette, logo and strap line.”

As you can see from my non-stop smiles the award was very well-received.  My only regret was that they would not let us into the stadium itself to scream 'Hello Wembley'.  Instead, we had to make do with a slap-up banquet dinner in the Bobby Moore Suite with lots of entertainment and inspirational speeches.

We have worked very hard to make our website easy to follow and attractive to look at.  Hours have been spent writing product descriptions, blogs and FAQs from scratch.  Many, many photo shoots have taken place!

Above all, the website seeks to tell the story of our niche little business and how proud we are of it.

Occasionally a button may not work or a product is out of stock (we're only a small business!) but we try very hard to keep information up to date, and to make our different services and products distinct and easy to order.

We owe a huge thank you to lots of people, but particulary Aeolidia for their exceptional website design & branding and to Holly Booth for her consistent product photography.

Here's to an equally exciting and rewarding 2020!
