Buy local this Christmas – Surrey

Buy local this Christmas – Surrey

You can’t buy happiness this Christmas but you can buy local this Christmas, and that’s kind of the same.

When you buy local, you are not only supporting a business, you are supporting a person in your local community and their family.

Support local businesses

It really is true that when you buy from a local business, the owner does actually do a happy dance.

And not only that! Be inspired with unique ideas delivered with love and a personal touch. One thing Amazon can’t do.

I know buying from one of the big online stores is sometimes easier, but if you could, pop by our online stores and see whether you can do some Christmas shopping with us.

I also thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce some of the amazing ladies behind these local businesses.

Jo B Yoga – Jo B Yoga for Wellbeing

Jo B Yoga for WellbeingOwner and Instructor: Jo Broidy

Over a year ago, I started a yoga course for ‘men who don’t do yoga’.

My own experience had shown me that some men I knew were keen to try yoga but were put off by the thought of a mixed group, plus they wanted to be with other beginners.

Since then, the course has attracted all ages from 18 to 75 and mixed levels of fitness. From athletes looking to increase their flexibility to those looking to unwind and de-stress. It has been incredible for me to watch the impact that yoga has had on them and I am keen to attract more ‘non yogis’.

The course lasts for 10 weeks and is aimed at beginners. It is held on Wednesday nights from 8-9.15pm at St Charles Borromeo School Hall, Weybridge (there is parking).

It costs £100 and the men require a mat, block and strap.

The next course starts on the 8th January. Please PM me if you are interested in joining the next course or if you are interested in purchasing a gift voucher.

When was the last time you had a shoot? How many more times are you going to say ‘we really should have a family shoot?’

Stop putting off that family photoshoot and purchase a gift voucher that you can all enjoy.  Not just for Christmas too!

My family photoshoots are natural, fun and there’s no awkward posing involved. Why not bring the whole family together and get some beautiful timeless images that you can all treasure.

Just email me and I’ll prepare a beautifully gift wrapped voucher for Christmas!




I’m not just a family photographer though. I’m unashamedly passionate. I’m thrilled that you’re here and honestly can’t wait to work with you to create something extra special.
