The White Cloud Blog has had an update; now integrated into the White Cloud website, it means it is far more versatile and, hopefully, userfriendly. We hope that we can encourage followers to post their own comments and send us their own snippets from time to time….
We held a big (well, for Cliffords Mesne it was big!) Fundraising Curry evening for the Army Benevolent Fund on Friday evening and it was a huge success, almost 60 people squeezed into the village hall and were treated to an authentic Thai curry cooked by my Thai sister in law, a next to impossible Army/Curry themed Quiz and some delicious puddings. Everyone responded enormously generously and we managed to raise £1225 which exceeded our expectations- apparently the aroma of curry was drifting deliciously around the village as people arrived! We even managed to put together red/white/blue bunches of flowers on the tables…
It is always a pleasure when customers take the time and trouble to tell us how happy they are with their purchases; last week a made to measure summer duvet was ordered by Mrs Jackson. She telephoned to say she had spent “a small fortune” on other bedding, but the duvet had just given her the best nights sleep she had ever had and is now ordering some wool pillows. Our new wool Junior Range seems to have hit just the right spot; Cosima in London wrote on Friday to say she has decided to buy a wool duvet for herself because “I love my daughter’s duvet”.
Discussions have started with Woolmark in London about National Wool Week in September and we are hoping to team up with some of those shops who stock our products to jointly promote the benefits of sleeping with wool. Seeing products on shelves is immensely important, particularly when you run an online retail business. Woolmark is a certification of quality wool and good animal husbandry.
