Opportunities for your business


Could This Be Heaven?

Finding great events local to you is one of life’s little wonders. 10 minutes in the car? Perfect, I’m there! I came across the Guildford Beer Festival by chance a few days before it began and I’m so glad I did. Without hesitation, I convinced Ellen Recommends to drive and booked the tickets, all the while crossing my fingers for good weather!
