We are excited to welcome the new Ash class to our business adventure. At the moment the old Ashpirations group ("the bosses!") meet every Thursday lunchtime working on our plans for this year. The new Ash group meet every Friday and work on creating the new products and running the day to day tasks for the business.
We are looking forward to seeing many familiar faces at the Christmas Fair on Thursday 3rd December. We are currently making our Power-Tex Angels and some colourful mosaic decorations to glam up your Christmas tree!!
Pictures will be coming soon...
