Maid for Mum

Suzanne Nicholls – Maid 4 Mum – West Sussex

Are you a Mum, Dad, Grandparent or just a kid at heart yourself! Take a look in my e-bay shop via my WiRE link, to find great priced small toy and gift ideas for children. The majority of goodies are priced between 50p & £2.00, so they make ideal party bag gifts and stocking fillers too! I cannot put everything I sell on e-bay because it's just not cost effective, so why not sign up for my quarterly e-catalogue just drop me a line at suzannenicholls@ntlworld.com. It would be great to hear from WiRE members and get some feedback at the same time.


Linda Moss – Organic Places to Stay – West Yorkshire

There's a wide selection of places to choose from in this directory of Organic holidays. Around half the places listed offer meals, usually breakfast, but lunches and evening meals are often available as well. Some of these places have their own small restaurant, several of which are certified organic, and others may have a certified organic kitchen garden. Meals are prepared using local organic produce whenever possible. On average this will be at least 50% organic, but many of the places offer a much higher percentage, up to 100% organic. Quite a few of them grow their own produce, some use wild or natural foods, and most will aim to use fresh local produce rather than imported food. The rest of the places in the book are self-catering on organic farms or smallholdings. At these places you'll find information about the availability of organic food - for example whether you can buy the farm's own organic produce, order organic ready meals, have an organic vegetable box delivered, or find organic produce in the local area. Fresh produce, local specialities, slow food, home baking, homemade products such as jam, chutney, juice, ice cream, yogurt, cheese - you'll find all these and more. For more details email Linda at lindamoss@organicholidays.com. Or visit the website www.organicholidays.co.uk


Carol Atkinson – The Straw Bale Cabin- East Yorkshire

The UK's first straw bale holiday cottage has a new website www.strawcottage.co.uk. designed by fellow WIRE member Katrina Thompson (www.katproductions.co.uk). It was difficult to optimise the original site for building with straw and holidays so now we have a new site dedicated to the holiday side of our business and the original site will now be updated by Katrina to include more about the benefits of building with straw bales and the training, building and design services that we can provide. For more details visit the new website www.strawcottage.co.uk.


Deborah Barham Smith – DBS Training - Derbyshire

Is your networking not working? Imagine walking into a room and having the confidence and skills to start building new relationships with the people you meet for the first time. It might be a cocktail party, seminar or business networking group. Business networking is simply having a conversation; yet most professional people miss out on valuable new leads by not utilising networking techniques effectively. And this is where Deborah Barham Smith can assist your business by teaching you the Kintish system of networking skills.
