Great stuff! You have to be really careful about expanding too quickly, as the odd big order is not necessarily something that you can rely on, but good luck and glad to see their success.

It is a niche market, but nothing wrong with that, all the best!

They 'phoned me, I think, up hoping I misspelt Evans as Hitchcock! Might be dyslexic but.... Directed them to your website and business name. If not then expect further media interest. Free advertising, bring it on. Might be worth sending a publicity shot round the Newspapers. Ticks all the boxes for a happy story on a slow news day.

Cannot say how pleased I am for Alan. That it can be a success for the family only makes it even better. Lots more hard work to come but this time lets hope the rewards are there.

Alan and Emma Murphy? Perhaps that should be Alan Evans and Emma Murphy, can't trust the media to get names right, but it is great publicity. If I had the spare money and place to use it I would love a canary yellow Tiger. Glad to hear their order books are full, even in these difficult times, brill!
