Many in business have made a profession out of “networking” – to me, its just something you do – help people out, introduce one person you like to another person you like, as and when a need arises.

A couple of years ago I introduced two of our friends to each other, both nice guys, both running established SMEs, each of whom have passed me very useful information, insights and contacts over the years.

Blue Strawberry Elephant Towers is shared with an eclectic mix of owner managed micro businesses.

Apart from the obligatory financial services, there’s a 3d Printer, Expo stand builder, Mobile Bar for weddings and events service, an IT company and a Gym, amongst others..

One such other is Just Preserves – manufacturer of artisan jams, marmalades, chutneys and mustards – whose owner/ manager / chief onion peeler, is Matt Hulley.

Omega 3, that famous fatty acid that is known to cure everything from depression to bad hair days, is found in the darker piscine species – salmon, tuna, mackerel…. but white fish is also “good” for you – so long as it’s not full of Mercury.

Well – stay with me here – I’m taking the scenic route.
