Happy New Year!

January already – Happy New Year Greetings!  It feels like a bit of a landmark – as I mentally change from thinking the Breckland Orchard was founded ‘this year’ to ‘last year’.  We started up in March 2009, so not yet a year old!  It’s been a real whirlwind of a year – establishing Breckland Orchard as an artisan soft drinks company from Norfolk…..and notching up a few awards along the way! I’ve loved every single minute so far.

For Christmas I decided to spread some seasonal cheer instead of sending out Christmas cards, and made donations of drinks to some very worthy local causes.  Christmas is all about family and friends for me – spending time with my nearest and dearest.  I wanted to remember the homeless – and donated to the Salvation Army Centre in Norwich and Jimmy’s Night Shelter in Cambridge.  Both are really fantastic places, and were over the moon about having some drinks to make Christmas even more special for their guests.

2009 was our founding year……moving into 2010 feels SO exciting.  If it’s anything like 2009 then it will be a very special year indeed.  Onwards and upwards!

Happy New Year
