As a family run business we are proud to take responsibility, offering ownership to what we do, and give that personal service to all our clients. Tonight on BBC three at 9pm watch Hidden Histories – Britain’s Oldest Family Business’s.
Supporting British industry and keeping old traditional manufacturing crafts going for future generations are slowly becoming things of the past.
Our shopping behaviour has changed, it’s not about enjoyment, satisfaction, quality or choices anymore but about bargains, a quick immediate purchase and having what everyone else has.
We are becoming a nation that is making huge corporate companies richer; we encourage their cut throat approach and the government allows them to suffocate smaller business by allowing them to take over and branch out to all services.
We no longer cherish our heritage, look after our forgotten industry’s and are not getting the satisfaction for buying quality over mass produced produce, which is quite often sourced from overseas.
It’s evident that we like the idea of supporting local British industry, we like the idea that English heritage is striving and exists but the reality is we are forgetting to support and consider smaller companies that are striving to carry on regardless.
