December's Newsletter.

Oh December! It has been an avalanche of Christmas cards, the end of year round up and the obligatory festive knits.

This year wearing festive knits has been more than just a passion of ours but also the opportunity to help support the vital work of Save the Children.  We were very pleased to have donated £118 to Save the Children UK for their Christmas Jumper Day.  

Now the last posting dates have gone, the Christmas cards are out and the mince pies are stocked up in the cupboard, we can look back on what an exciting month December was for us all.

A highlight  was Treesa Green making her first appearance at a local school.  She wandered straight out of the woods and ended up at Westfield Primary who were in need of more greenery.  She spent the day there helping the pupils to plant saplings and teaching them about how trees benefit the environment - you can read more about her day here.  This timed really well with some of the work being done by our partners at the Woodland Trust for National Tree Week.

(And just in case you missed it and need a little more incentive, here are five reasons to plant a tree).

Another good story in the local press; we presented Midsomer Norton RFC Under 14s  with the first new set set of shirts in the team’s history.

The Coach, David Williams, said ‘ We are hugely grateful for this generous sponsorship which means so much to the players.

The U-14s team has great potential and has proved this over the last couple of seasons with their growing maturity in their commitment to training and attitude in games. So far this season they have won 6 and lost 2 narrowly losing to a very good Clifton team in the last play of the game in the quarter final of the Bristol cup. .

Next season they will start fundraising for their U-15s tour and hope to challenge strongly in all cups and develop players still further.  It goes without saying that we wish them all the best for the upcoming games!

In print news

The results are in for the Power100, all the details on are on the Print Week website, but importantly, Chairman Dave Broadway made the Power100 list at number 49!  There was also the people's vote where Dave and CEO Bill McFedries did fantastically and were ranked at number 9 and 11 respectively! 

Thank you everyone who voted.

Finally, we have a couple great articles on the blog at the moment about planning your direct mail campaign: 
Is there anything you'd like to learn more about?

It has been a busy month!  Wishing you all a very festive holiday and a happy new year. See you in 2017!
