Sue Wilkins – Hello to my “old” friend and welcome to my new customers


A friendly "hello again" to my long-standing customers and a very warm welcome to all my new customers who have joined us this summer.  

Where did I meet you? Was it Lytham, Staffordshire County Show, Ashbourne Show, Peak Village, Hardwick or Trentham Food and Drink Festivals, the Ukrainian Centre in Huddersfield, Bolton, Buxton or Haddon Hall?  Wow! Even I can't quite believe we've done so many. But hasn't it been lovely to get out and about again, after the year we've just had?

HUUB to Give Team Europe the Edge

Triathlon market leader HUUB is an innovative company with a mission to make athletes faster. When we were asked if we wanted to create suits for Team Europe at the Collins Cup we couldn’t have been prouder, not only to create the suits for the winning team but also to allow us to showcase our new Aero-Heat-Matrix.

Here at HUUB, we shy away from the easy; our focus has always been innovation and a meticulous approach to researching where gains can still be found and remain as yet uncovered.
