Winter News 2017
Posted on January 02, 2017 | 0 Comments
Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all have had a wonderful festive season with your families.
As a family business Sleepy Nico has a bit of a rest in December and early January, it's full of pantomimes, school plays and late night present wrapping. I always feel excited about the prospect of a new year and reflective on the one just passed. For Sleepy Nico it has been a year of recognition with our first ever awards for our baby carriers and as a business. Our spring and autumn collections were greeted with enthusiasm and behind the scenes changes are being planned for 2017.
Sleepy Nico were awarded a Silver Gentle Parenting Award and a silver Prima Baby and Pregnancy Award. We were also accepted as a member of the Future50 - a scheme for 'businesses to watch' in the East Anglian region.
In the Media
On the radio - a real highlight of the year for me personally was being interviewed on Radio Suffolk about Sleepy Nico. I am now harbouring a not terribly secret desire to be a radio broadcaster!
It was also wonderful to be featured in the East Anglian Daily Times. I certainly hadn't intended on becoming a Sleepy Nico cover girl, but this wonderful photo taken by the talented Ali Dover was just perfect for the article.
It was lovely to meet so many of you in Suffolk, the New Forest and London in 2016. This year we are delighted to be silver sponsors at the Northern Sling Exhibition in Sheffield and catching up with so many of you in the Sling City :). Karen who looks after Sleepy Nico's social media will be joining me and I look forward to working with her in person as well as in cyber space!
