Kirkburton Hardware has moved

Kirkburton Hardware has moved to a new premises in Kirkburton.

Louise from Kirkburton Hardware said “Obviously the move was very big but worth every bit of blood, sweat and tears that we put in to it, with help from friends and family.  We now have a much bigger shop and are very happy we did it”.

Kirkburton Hardware premise moveThe move to a more central spot in the village has meant they are now seeing new customers, presumably because of increased visibility and ability to carry more stock.

Unbelievably, 90% of the shop was moved in this little french bike trailer, Rachel, one of Kirkburton Hardware’s much loved customers!  Louise and Glen have said that she was an absolute godsend!  That is definitely a customer worth keeping!

 

They are also now back to their normal hours too. 

Which are –

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 830 till 4pm

Wednesday 830 till 12

Saturday 830 till 2pm

Hello from James Houtby Travel Counsellors

HD8 Network member James Houtby Travel CounsellorsHello HD8 and beyond if you are reading from outside the area.  My name is James Houtby and I had been looking at starting my own business for the previous three years and the pros of doing so never outweigh the cons with having a young family and the security of a regular income every month from a secure job, or so I thought.

Back in April of this year I found my position at the company I worked for being made redundant.  At the time I did not realise however this was the best thing that could have happened to me and my life was about to change forever!

Fast forward to the 27th July and I launched my own Travel Management Company specialising in both leisure and corporate travel.

Airplane window - James Houtby Travel Counsellor

“You’re mad” I hear you saying.  Launching a travel business in the middle of pandemic when the travel industry is reeling!

I promise you I am not mad, having worked in the travel industry for approx. 15 years working my way up from a Junior Travel Consultant to Senior Management this was the right time for me.  Partnering with the award-winning travel counsellors, they have provided me with the platform from which to successfully launch my own business in the travel industry.

I offer more than a traditional travel management company and high street travel agency by providing a personal and concierge service.  I will get to know you/your business and your fellow travellers personally, understand your wants and needs and provide you with a VIP service without the VIP price tag.

My dream holiday I hear you all asking now …

SOUTH AMERICA-Peru-Macchu PichuI love history therefore there are various places I would love to visit:

Egypt – the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza,

Angkor Wat which is the largest temple complex in the world located in Siem Reap, Cambodia

and to travel the length and breadth of Peru including taking in Machu Picchu, this Incan settlement is set high up in the Andes Mountains above the Urubamba River valley this location absolutely fascinates me.

The final holiday would be to take a cruise through the Arctic Circle, travelling from Reykjavik in Iceland, Franz Josef Island and Spitsbergen which is the only inhabited areas of the Svalbard archipelago.

Thank you for reading, if this has inspired you please get in touch and let me help you create your next dream holiday!

Covid-19 Denby Dale Ward Update

Unfortunately HD8 remains an identified high risk area and we still have a high number of cases in Denby Dale Ward and in our surrounding areas.

Covid-19 Denby Dale Ward UpdateThe number of positive cases that have been reported back in Denby Dale ward has risen to 18.

This works out at a positive case rate, over the 7 day period, of 106 per 100,000 people. This is up from 76 in last week’s update.

This is higher than England’s average rate and is also a higher figure than the Kirklees-wide rate.

There is currently a delay in some test results being processed so the figure for this period may be higher.

This serves as an important reminder about how important it is that we all do what we can to follow the rules and take every precaution possible to protect against the virus;
– to regularly wash hands for 20 seconds – and/or use hand sanitisers;
– to not meet up with people outside your household/support bubble;
– to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces, where it is advised
– to follow social distancing rules by making 2m of space
– and to isolate if you have any symptoms and to try to get a test as soon as is possible.

You can find a summary of the local restrictions on the Government website here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/local-restrictions-areas-with-an-outbreak-of-coronavirus-covid-19.

Personal Branding Photography by John Steel

Oliver James Sugar Craft, John Steel Photography

John Steel Photography has been in business for more than a decade and specialises in photographing people.  There are four different sides to his photography business, these are –

  • Weddings
  • Family
  • Commercial
  • Fitness

His photography captures personality and is absolutely not posed or boring – anything but!

This article focuses on Personal Branding Photography, however if you are interested to find out about the other aspects of John Steel Photography, please visit his website to find out more.

Personal branding seems to be a new buzz word, but what does it mean?

John Steel defines personal branding as “branding for small business owners.”

As business owners we live and breathe our businesses and to survive and flourish, each small business needs to attract exactly the right clients.

Personal branding establishes who you are, what you offer and who your customer is.

For many years John Steel Photography and the industry have referred to these types of images as Business Portraits, which included headshots and shots for press coverage.  But with developing online access to your business a new sector has been created, and so has the buzzwords “Personal Branding Photography”.

John Steel says “Branding images tell the story of you and your personal brand.  They are a selection of images that communicate with the people using your website, social media, print media and so on.”

 

John Steel vehemently believes that “People buy from people” and advises you to “make sure you stand out with fabulous pictures that show the real, authentic side of you.”

So, you have created your business; you have spent hours and hours creating your brand; but who you are and what do you represent?

Your business is your passion – it is your life; so, take time to show everyone how great you really are.

A personal branding photo shoot is so much more than a head shot.

John Steel is here to capture you in your true light; capturing your personality so that it will sell your product or service.

Who can have a personal branding shoot?

Well pretty much everyone; if you are a butcher, baker, candlestick maker, magician, personal trainer, or accountant…absolutely anyone can have one.

Interested to find out more or maybe even book a session with John Steel Photography? 

Then send him an email on John@JohnSteelPhotography.com

HD8 is still Covid High Risk

HD8 is still High Risk CovidUnfortunately the HD8 postcode of Huddersfield remains a high risk area for the Coronavirus.

We still have a high number of cases in Denby Dale Ward and in all of our surrounding areas – with high rates in Shelley and Shepley at the moment, as well as Holmfirth.

In the last 7 days, the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in Denby Dale Ward has been 76 per 100,000 people.

This is higher than the England average and is a higher figure than the Kirklees-wide rate when local restrictions were imposed.

This serves as an important reminder about how important it is that we all do what we can to follow the rules and take every precaution possible to protect against the virus;
– to regularly wash hands for 20 seconds – and/or use hand sanitisers;
– to not meet people outside your household/support bubble;
– to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces, where it is advised
– to follow social distancing rules by making 2m of space
– and to isolate if you have any symptoms and to try to get a test as soon as is possible.

Would your Boss like a Financial Boost?

Company Directors are always pretty busy, wall to wall meetings and a never-ending need to manage the diary effectively. All that and of course you know how important it is to improve cash flow – right?

Cash flow is ‘king’ in any business and never more so than in this current climate. Improving job security is on top of everyone’s minds and often increasing sales isn’t just the answer as there is a cost attached to that too.

How often do you think” Oh if only we could receive a windfall – so strings attached’!
Well if you haven’t had that thought, you can bet your bottom dollar your Boss has.

Pain-free cash injection into businesses right now is a glorious thought, and one, which could be realised within a few weeks, if the business qualifies. Yes, it’s true, a pain-free cash injection, which comes without conditions, as long as your business is eligible.

During the last two years;

• Has your business faced challenges either day to day or during a particular project?
• Has your company made an appreciable improvement to its process, system, material, product, service or device?
• Do your business make prototypes or product examples?
• Is waste a bi-product of the work that the firm undertakes?
• Has the company had to change the way that it works to fulfil and order or general market requirements?

If you can answer ‘Yes’ to any of the above, it is worth us having a chat. Why not be the person to facilitate a positive change within your business and earn oodles of brownie points into the bargain?

Don’t underestimate the value of a 5-minute chat, it could alter the course of the business that you work for, it could help to protect jobs, and in the very least, it could result in a happy boss! Now hasn’t that got to be worth thinking about?

In our experience, bosses have been bowled over with the results of an R&D claim and even invited the tax specialists expertise onto board meetings to offer advice in the business direction in the coming year so that the following years claim can be maximised as well.

It could be YOU that facilitates similar action that could not only protect your role, but those of colleagues as well as see perhaps a capital investment in the business or at the least a happier bank balance.

Please stop and think about this over a cuppa and then call us, nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say…

Hats off to emerging HD8 business women

I don’t know if our word has anything to do with anything, but the HD8 Network would like to take its hat off to some amazing emerging business women in the HD8 area.

 

Ellen Wilkinson Sophia Rita BoutiqueEllen Wilkinson with her fabulous on trend clothes shop, Sophia Rita Boutique, featuring womenswear, footwear and accessories.

Ellen has adapted and pivoted like a dream during this time, whilst juggling homeschooling of TWO children under 5.

The Boutique can be found in Nortonthorpe Mills in Scissett, and was due to open just after the announcement of lockdown; after months of careful, strategic planning and organising.

Ellen Wilkinson Sophia Rita Boutique

So instead Ellen launched the business on Facebook and Instagram, selling items virtually and thankfully (well quite rightly) has so far made a massive success.

The doors of the boutique are now wide open and welcoming you to revitalise your wardrobe.

Well done Ellen you should be very proud of yourself!

 

HD8 Network member Jayne Adamson from the Flex CollectiveAnd of course, there is the force to be reckoned with – Jayne Adamson #hatsoff #massivefan

Jayne had embraced self empowerment (that was a mistype, but I like it, so it’s staying in) like myself.  If you’re going to set up a business, you might as well do two at the same time!

HD8 Network member Flex Collective

She has seen a gap in the market – a professional place to work and meet in the HD8 area – and gone for it and created the Flex Collective in Denby Dale.

Jayne has quite rightly remarked in the past that there are loads of nice cafes in the area with amazing views and refreshments, but they are not always the professional setting without distractions that is required.

The Flex Collective can be booked by the day and for meetings, and have been running training sessions recently to help local business owners.  Visit their listing on our website here

Well done ladies!

You’re doing an amazing job!  Especially “during this time”

 

PS – as new businesses they probably didn’t qualify for ANY OF THE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT available during Covid and lockdown.

Not the council led grants for businesses with PROPERTY, including possibly either of the discretionary grants (which again just offers support to businesses with property).

They won’t have had a history of accounts and so won’t be eligible for SEISS (Self employed income support scheme) if they are classed as self employed.

If they had the legal structure of a Limited Company, they still wouldn’t have got anything, apart from the option to furlough themselves – but like we mentioned there was no employment history to base this on and if they had of been able to take this option, it would have quite possibly kissed goodbye to any of their hopes and dreams, as under furlough you’re not able to do any work – especially not income generating.

Instead they have striven on admirably …

… despite the amounting costs of stock, furniture, property, legal fees, utilities and all the other endless bills associated with running a business, with reduced or diminished public confidence to go out and shop or be around others and both having children not at school that also need occupying.

((Btw – if you don’t agree about the situation of these ladies and other, let’s say the Forgotten. Please get in touch with your MP, the FSB and others that need to hear your voice and examples to help argue the case) rant over …)

Go on girls!

Please support these wonderful women and all the other local businesses by spreading the word, celebrate them publicly and most importantly spend your money with them!

 

Denby Dale co-working and meeting space now open

Your local co-working and meeting space in Denby Dale is now open.

Jayne Adamson creator of the Flex CollectiveThe Flex Collective was set up by Jayne Adamson who had been working at home since starting her marketing business (she helps product led businesses with their strategy and marketing) in February 2019.

She decided that working from home all the time was not good for her, she found it lonely and missed collaborating with her ex colleagues, customers and suppliers.

Well many of us have had a taste of that now and there are not a lot of people who have actually enjoyed working from home for the last 4 months, whilst home schooling kids or with the other half under the feet or maybe just being alone all that time.

Yes, many of us have discovered the power of the online video meeting even for our social lives as well as work but let’s be honest, we are so over that aren’t we?

The fact remains that nothing can beat being around people, the banter, having someone make you a brew and generally just being somewhere other than your own house.

As pubs and restaurants reopen and people get back to some sort of normality, the government are set to change the ‘work from home’ advice that they have been dishing out since March and are now saying we can go to work.

It still remains to be seen whether employers will force their employees to go to the office (yes, by law they can do this), or whether they will be open to more flexible arrangements, or even will tell their employees to carry on working from home for the foreseeable future.

If you are one of those being told to continue to work from home or you are your own employer and you can do what the hell you like then it may be time to consider visiting The Flex Collective to chat about the co-working space.

It is a friendly, comfortable and fully equipped office where you can chat with like minded people whilst cracking on with your work without the distractions that we have all had to put up with the last few months.

And best of all, you can try it out for free for a day, see if you like it.

If you want to book a free day you can do that here http://theflexcollective.co.uk/make-a-booking/ using code ONEDAYFREE. Jayne would be happy to welcome you and show you around.

The space works on a flexible membership basis where you can sign up for 5, 10 or 15 days a month or you can just pay as you go, the more you go the more you save. Details of pricing for all the services can be found on the website here http://theflexcollective.co.uk/pricing/

Over the last few weeks they have had quite a few people trying out the space and all have said they will be back once they can properly get their lives back, so that is looking like it will be September time as many still have childcare issues and many are just not ready to come out of their homes yet. However, over the next month or so hopefully people will grow in confidence and we can all get back to work properly (whatever properly means!)

Flex Collective workshop

As well as the space for co-working there is also a large meeting room which can be hired out by the hour, half day or full day for private meetings, training workshops and networking events, whatever you need it for really.

There have been a couple of workshops run in this space already with very limited numbers so that they could maintain a social distance but both were really well received and there will be more to come.

Amongst others there will be another wordpress workshop for those of us with wordpress sites that we don’t know how to update, a social media strategy workshop to help local businesses define what their strategy should be and how to reach their target customer and also a facebook ads workshop.

If you have any suggestions of something you would like to see then just pop an email to jayne@theflexcollective.co.uk who will be very open to discussing any ideas with you.

Jayne really wants The Flex Collective to be a place where our community can collaborate and support each other so that we can all see each other, and therefore the HD8 area thrive in the long term.
