You will be pleased to know that this week has been a bit quieter!!
So, whilst we wait to see if the snow that has been forecast arrives, lets get on with this weeks blog post.
New tenants arrive in Unit 3
Between them, Maria & Nino produce leatherwork items & jewellery, as well other associated crafts. Nino is also an author, and his first book is being published & launched as we speak.
They are also 'Steampunk' enthusiasts, and will be bringing some of that side of their lives to the Courtyard during the year, which promises to be both exciting & different.
Once they have got themselves installed then I will be finding out more about them & featuring them in a future blog post.
Tourist Board comes to Bolsover....
We are hoping to have more detailed talks with the Castle in the coming weeks, to see how we can hopefully work together.
I was amazed to hear that the Castle has 95,000 visitors each year! Now if we could get 10% of them into OBY and they each spent £1 per person - that would be very nice thankyou!!
Bolsover Food & Drink Festival 2019
Next Monday afternoon, I will be meeting with Edge Events to talk about their plans for this years Festival, and will report back in next weeks blog post.
Meanwhile, we are finalising our plans for our 'Cake Bonanza' in OBY over that weekend.
Just to clarify, as there has been some confusion, the event is about featuring 'all things cakes' and next week we will be revealing more information about our plans
And also next week....
Then in the afternoon on Monday, the meeting with Edge Events which we mentioned earlier
Then at the end of the week another Bolsover District Council (BDC) meeting with Sudipta Ghosh, Senior Economic Development Officer, to talk about Bolsover business in general, and I shall be talking to her about a new project that I am developing called 'Bolsover Business' - but more of that later.
We still haven't found that elusive String Quartet yet for August. Sadly, the German Oompah Band seems to be creeping ever closer!
All offers of help greatly appreciated!!
