Spring has officially sprung!

Every few months, I provide a summary of interesting things which clients are up too. Spring is certainly a season of the year where many small businesses launch into new programmes or activities - and 2015 is no exception!

Many clients have been looking to refresh and update their online presence. Adorn Studio in Shrewsbury, have recently incorporated an online shop into their website - selling stunning jewellery and piercings. Their business continues to develop rapidly and a growing client base from across the country, is choosing to be ‘Adorned’.

Bright Owls language school are working on a new website, that will have in-depth international pages in a host of languages. They have just released their Easter workshop programme this week - and they are also preparing to host their annual visit from foreign students in July. If you have a spare bedroom for a few weeks and would like to participate in an exciting cultural exchange, then do get in touch with them to enquire about becoming a host family this year!

Shrewsbury Film Society are continuing to draw in big audiences - and their main season has been supplemented by extra films this year. Shropshire Music Trust have also been busy delivering an excellent programme of music events across Shrewsbury and surrounds...

Independent record store Cave Records, have enjoyed some great days recently - and it’s always positive to see people embracing the opportunity to support one of Shropshire’s last remaining record stores. Cave Records stock new vinyl as well as a vast array of second hand, making them even more unusual!

Stained glass artist Nathalie at Couleurlive Studio has been busy over the winter, with stunning windows about to be installed at St James Church in Ryhill, West Yorkshire over the coming weeks.

Neil Rathmell, a Shrewsbury basesd author has also seen success - with copies of his books on the shelves of Waterstones in Shrewsbury - and most recently, available from Castle Bookshop in Ludlow.

DASH (Disability Arts in Shropshire) - have been extremely busy. Today in fact, they have hosted a Symposium in Birmingham, the culmination of a three year project. IN - Disability arts ‘in’ the mainstream, has seen DASH work with a host of arts institutions and galleries across the region. DASH have also been delivering a series of free workshops across rural Shropshire, through their Art Express project.

Whatever the business or the industry, there is always something news-worthy that can be of potential interest to local people.
