Irongate Group shares with Jamie Oliver

Jamie appreciates the importance of shopping smart, as do Irongate's customers. 

His single regret is using the word pukker.  Don't you rather like his cheeky catchphrase? He cleverly states it as his regret, sneaking his differentiator into the TV Advert. Jamie Oliver is talented and clever! And we love him.

Irongate Group Supporting the Community

Irongate Group are currently organising a 15 mile walk for our employees on Saturday 5 July 2014 to raise valuable funds for the local Air Ambulance. We currently have 22 walkers, and Barry Pearn’s  wife Grace has kindly agreed to attend also as our First Aider (along with Barry) and physio.

Emma Wright and Karen Milne are busy planning the route and are sampling many sections of different walks to pick the right one, which will include a few pub/refreshments stops along the way. This is a great worthy cause and is hoped to be an enjoyable summer’s day out for all.

Our staff are starting to get walking, building up distances and getting ready for walk day.  There’s no time for excuses as the lighter and warmer evenings are here! As part of the training regime we will be looking to arrange some after-work walks at nearby locations.

If you'd like to donate to Air Ambulance please click the picture for a link

Let's Get Britain Writing

This year Post-it® Brand is an official sponsor of National Stationery Week which runs from 31 March - 6 April 2014 and is gearing up to support the Get Britain Writing campaign, by highlighting just how emotive and personal the power of a written note can be. 

The Post-It Campaign

A team of influential bloggers will be examining the topic by exploring what the written word means to them and their own handwriting being analysed by a top graphologist.  Key insights behind handwriting styles, choices of colour pen and even the shape of the note written on will be extensively shared and debated across digital channels.  

The campaign, 'The Power of the Written Note' will highlight that a written note for a friend, colleague or loved one invokes real emotion, personality and individuality, whether it is just words or combined with simple symbols and doodles.   Examples will be shared on the Post-it® Brand Facebook page.
