GLORY!!!!

Simon;

So, it really happened. Having been open for only 11 weeks, we won the Haringey Business Awards New Business of the Year 2008. It's hard to believe, but here it is.
That's our name that is.

The evening started off at the Decorium, North London's Premiere Banquetting Venue. Actually it started in The Goose, and the the Jolly Anglers. The Goose was too busy so we went for a 'livener' in the 'JAnglers' as it's known. Suitably nervous and excited we arrived at the Decorium. Oooh Look

Oooh Look how many smartly dressed people there were.

We had some pretty tough opposition, especially from the Alek at Leader Financial, who have set up a brilliant company to help (mainly) Polish speakers get financial help in Haringey. Here's Alek (and if I had any sort of a memory I would be able to tell you his partner was)

You have to remember that this award is for the best new business in ALL of Haringey, so to get into the last 3 was an amazing achievement, and the thought of a free meal was enough to cheer up Tim. I put on my best shirt.

After the pre dinner drinks and the lovely meal, the awards got underway, and thankfully the first up was us. I never expected that we'd win and it was absolutely crazy when 'and the winner is.....The Big Green Bookshop' was announced. Tim and I were ushered up to the stage and I grabbed the award and Tim was passed the microphone (I think, by me). He thanked people and said he had a 20 minute speech prepared (ha ha ha) and then I said thanks and then we got whisked off to have official photos. These weren't them. Tim singing...

. Me with the Mayor, the lovely Alan Dobbie (lab), who should win awards in Wood Green every year for the work he does in the area.

Anyway. That was that, and today it was back to reality. The hangover is now over and I shall shortly be enlightening you all on our latest marketing campaign!!

Thanks for all of you who voted for us, and continue to support us. We work really really hard and know that the customers are the people who decide whether we succeed or not. There's no resting on laurels, just because we've got a trophy, but it's nice to get a bit of recognition...innit?

We have had some Murakami progress, but my lips are sealed at the moment...
