Happy New Year!

Claire Price

I've started the new year with a brand new resolution - start a blog to celebrate our new website which we launched before Christmas!

It's a bit of a January tradition for most to indulge in retrospection and then look ahead and wonder what the coming months might bring.  The past 12 months have certainly been exciting for us and brought a lot of change, and I'm sure there will be lots to look forward to this year too.

One of the biggest things we did last year was expand the team and welcome new staff on board. That meant that we quickly outgrew our old office and had to up sticks! We're loving our new space in Capital Tower on Greyfriars Rd, smack in the city centre.  Take a look at our winter wonderland view!

We're on the ninth floor, which is quite good news for me as another resolution is the boring but necessary promise to try and be a bit fitter.  There's a lovely cafe, llaeth&siwgr (milk&sugar) on the ground floor, which also has a smart business meeting hub, so I'm gradually working my way through the menu there! #greedy

Looking ahead, one of the highlights of 2018 will be the National Eisteddfod which is coming to Cardiff in August.  Committees across the city have been busy fundraising for over a year by now to reach ambitious financial targets to fund the Eisteddfod's visit and promote the Welsh language and our culture as widely as possible.  From wine tasting to afternoon tea, curry nights and fairs, the variety of events organised so far has been fantastic.  The next event is a baby stuff sale on Saturday 20 January (2pm-4pm, Cyncoed Methodist Church) so if you want a bargain, head over!  Then on 25 January, Dydd Santes Dwynwen (our Welsh Saint of Love from the 5th century), there'll be a gala dinner, cariad@iaith, in the Hilton in Cardiff.  It promises to be a superb bilingual evening full of good food, great company and top entertainment with Mike Peters from The Alarm, Ian Gwyn Hughes, Eiry Thomas, Steve Dimmick, with Arfon Haines Davies at the helm. 

I'll wrap up by thanking all our clients for their continued support last year again - we're extremely lucky to have built great working relationships over the years and we're proud to work with all of them. I'm going to sign off and pop down to milk&sugar on the ground flood now for a scrummy fresh sandwich ....I'll stick to one of my new year's resolutions though and take the stairs!
