First of all, a big shout out to the good folk at Whitley Bay Big Local #WBBL for organising the Whitley Bay Carnival which was held today. The sun behaved and shone all day and ensured that a great day was had by all! It was a really great atmosphere and it brought back childhood memories of when the seafront was a thriving place to be. It was really well organised, great live street entertainment and some great live music too. It was lovely to see that it was so well attended and I look forward to seeing this event return again next year. Once again, big up for the Big Local!
Second shout out this week goes to Good Day Organics, a great organic skincare company based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, who are selling Alkamy Candles at their stand at Europe's biggest Vegan Festival this weekend in Bristol (VEGFESTUK). It sounds like it is going to be a great day and hope that Chris and his team have a great event! Alkamy will be taking our hand poured soy wax candles to the NEVFEST - North East Vegan Festival next weekend in Sunderland at the Stadium of Light (see here for further details) so we hope to see you there. For those of you who don't have your tickets yet, you can pay on the door.
Alkamy attended a great Charity Ladies Shopping Evening last night in Gosforth in aid of Macmillian Cancer Support. The event was really successful and congratulations to Pam Horden for organising the sold out event. A throughly good time was had by sellers and buyers alike and it was wonderful to meet some really lovely new customers - I hope you enjoy your products.
We will be attending the following events over the next few weeks:
Until next time!
