LOCAL BUCKINGHAMSHIRE GEMS
As a SME myself I like to support and promote local businesses. These could be companies that I work with (and for transparency I will indicate which these are), local restaurants that I can recommend or companies where I have purchased items. I’m all for networking so it would be great if you do contact any of these companies that you mention where you found their details.
I’m all for unique gifts and these companies certainly provide that along with the wow factor!
Belle (No. 2) from Furbaby Casting, specialises in animal, and baby prints, these are truly a forever gift and keep your loved ones with you for always.
Charlie is a lovely lady who provides an expert ironing service. Always responsive and punctual. You can find her details here:
Man with a Van
Ken is a lovely guy and very reliable, he responds to text and Facebook messages in a timely manner and is very helpful on the day. Reasonable prices too.
IT Assistance / Advice
For friendly, straight forward advise (given in Layman’s terms) and very reasonably priced services, I can highly recommend Tanswell Technology. The owner, Richard more than happily spent time on the phone with me going through the many questions I had about my website, my PC security and capacity and also had a great understanding of GDPR and the implications on various aspects of my business. I now feel so much more relaxed, assured and confident of what I have in place and know that Tanswell Technology will play a big part in moving my business forward.
25 years ago I flew via a little Cessna into this family-run Spanish restaurant from my wedding reception, the food, atmosphere and the staff were wonderful, we then moved away and had a family but last week we re-visited and it is still as warm and welcoming with food to go back for, I definitely will not be leaving it another 25 years before I go again!
The atmosphere in this Turkish restaurant is lively but relaxed, lovely lounge area outside to have coffee, staff are really friendly and the food is exceptional.
More + Coffee Shop
I have been an advocate of the The Suspended Coffees movement for some time, their ethos that a simple act of kindness can brighten someone's day, or even save a life really resonates with me. I was so delighted to find that a local coffee shop has a 'pay it forward' service where you can buy a cup of coffee for someone that is perhaps needing a bit of moral support or is perhaps less fortunate than ourselves. This is definitely one to visit, friendly welcoming staff, lovely cakes and a Chai Latte that is divine!
