Well 2015 certainly flew by for Kernowspa!
We had a busy start to the year with a big trade show, lots of new stockists, and having our products made available on notonthehighstreet.
The business outgrew our premises at Trereife Park on the outskirts of Penzance, and early summer we moved to King Edward Mine at Newton Moor near Troon. The move meant we had lots more manufacturing space, office space, and more importantly we had space for our own shop!
At the end of the summer HRH Prince Edward visited King Edward Mine to officially open all of the work space units. We were honoured that he visited our workshop during his tour. HRH was very interested in all of the products and how we manufacture them, and before he left he took a gift for The Countess of Wessex.
A few weeks later came another visit, this time from our local MP George Eustice. Mr Eustice was very impressed at the growth of the business and how we use local suppliers whenever we can.
November saw the return of our annual charity evening at Penwith College. For 2015 this was in aid of The Mermaid Centre at RCH Treliske. The Mermaid Centre is a specialist cancer centre in Cornwall, and were delighted to have raised a total of £456.25 for the charity. Guests gave donations for mini treatments and more money was raised from a grand raffle with amazing prizes from local business including Macleod Paul Photography, Zucchini Italian Kitchen, Cornishbirdinthesticks, Premier Water Solutions Ltd, The Cornish Jute Bag Company, Mimis and The Cornish Food Market.
As well as shows throughout the year, our busy Christmas period was jam packed with shows around the county, finishing with the Grand Victorian Market mid December.
We then finished the year on a lovely note by presenting The Mermaid Centre with their cheque which we know will be put to great use.
And now as we enter 2016 we are looking forward to what the year will bring, although 2015 will take some beating!!!
Wishing you all lots of happiness and good health for 2016 (and beyond),
Best Wishes from Cornwall,
The Kernowspa Team
