I've just donated to wikipedia, it survives as a free service because of the donations it receives, please consider donating.

I feel it's so important to maintain the resource of wikipedia, every donation, no matter how small keeps it alive.

Story
Tagline
Business Coach/Consultant, Entrepreneur, I work with Start up businesses, specialising in strategy, effectiveness, branding, and online marketing including social media
Introduction
I work with Start up businesses, specialising in strategy, effectiveness, branding, and online marketing including social media. 

Coming from a background of working in Human Resource Management and Recruitment in Multinationals, I registered my first business in 2007, and experienced a steep learning curve as a first time entrepreneur.  

My passion is to provide first time entrepreneurs with the support, guidance, knowledge and skills so that their learning curve is gentle, maximising growth of profits, rather than constant investment of time effort & money into their start up, with little return.

I love B Healthy, it is a brilliant health shop, independently run and unlike the big chains Rob's staff are trained to give correct advice to customers, so they get what they need (rather than just suggesting products that make the shop the best profit). If you're unsure of any product, have any questions, ask they'll answer what they can, and even ring the manufacturer if necessary! I take a lot of vitamins because I have a few health conditions which they help with so I'm a regular happy shopper in B Healthy.

Nice little independently run cafe, good food, clean, nice music playing (not too loud) and nice atmosphere. Didn't have to wait long for food. 2 things stopped me rating them 5 stars- one the pot of tea I ordered came as a cup - with a teabag in it and milk, I don't take milk in my tea... but it was quickly changed. The second was the slice of toast came pre "buttered" and I had to ask with what, it was margarine which I don't like. However they quickly replaced it with a fresh slice and some real butter I then spread myself. Staff not overly friendly, but efficient, and I liked that.

good food, helpful service if a little eccentric! Was busy in the restaurant so we decided to get a take away which we enjoyed.

Nice restaurant, friendly staff but not the most efficient, a simple system would help. The restaurant was empty yet we still had delays for drinks and some items we ordered were simply forgotten. Most of the food was lovely and we'll presented but my new potatoes were old reheated and didn't taste nice. Staff catered well and we're able to adapt some dishes due to medical dietary requirements.

This is a really nice pub, log fire, and the restaurant side served a great carvery- perfectly cooked meat- succulent, not dried out after sitting out for hours. Great roast potatoes and nicely cooked vegetables. Crackling, Yorkshire pudding and stuffing balls available and all the sauces- horseradish, mint, bread, choice of gravy pork/beef etc. The atmosphere was relaxed but the staff were well organised and didn't leave plates sitting on tables for long. I loved that we discovered this unexpectedly and had to drive through a ford to get to the car park! If we had more time we would have gone for a walk in the countryside and then come back to the pub for a drink before setting off home.

I ran an online marketing workshop for business owners from the Fielder Centre in June 2016, it was a nice venue, great food. Staff were attentive and catered for our every need, I was happy with the service.

It's a big store, but sadly the variety of food items is not what you'd expect in a store this size. The staff at self service are usually quick to respond to the automated tills having errors (I'm not sure I've ever been through them without at LEAST one error).
