Club Together Norfolk fundraising event September 2017

The Club Together Norfolk cycle riders are getting ready for a very special event!

Starting on Friday 8th September 2017, the 80+ team of riders are on a quest to visit every rugby club in Norfolk over three days. Ahead of them lies over 320 miles of open roads (during which they may realise that Norfolk is not as quite as flat as its reputation suggests!)

Over the three days, the club will be riding approximately 100 miles each day to raise an amazing amount of money.

The rugby-themed cycling event intends to achieve three objectives:

  • Raise a life-changing amount of money for community based charities

  • Create friendships and foster camaraderie across the rugby community

  • Promote healthy lifestyles and have fun!

The main charity the team will be fundraising for will be Wooden Spoon, which is the children’s charity of rugby. Their mission statement is “to positively transform the lives of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland through the power of rugby.”

Norfolk based MN Landscapes are delighted to be celebrating their 20th anniversary on 4th August 2017.

Established in rural Wymondham in 1997 by Martin and Nicky Wood, MN Landscapes continues to offer creative landscape design, construction and maintenance across Norfolk and Suffolk. Martin & Nicky both have a daily hands-on approach in the company, whilst looking for new ideas and both are looking forward for the future.

A family-run company with the ability to handle high quality landscape construction projects, MN Landscapes are proud to be long standing members and accredited by the APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) and BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries).

A recent highlight for Martin and Nicky involved building The Notcutts Garden, which was opened by the Lord Mayor of Norwich on May 11 2017 at the Notcutts Garden Centre in Daniels Road, Norwich. Coverage of the event can be viewed on the Eastern Daily Press website at http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/new-garden-display-hopes-to-inspire-visitors-to-get-creative-in-their-gardens-1-5017351. Since the Notcutts Norwich show garden they have installed similar gardens at Nottingham, Staines in Surrey and Tunbridge Wells for the Notcutts Group with more to follow.

Previously MN Landscapes entered national awards hosted by the Association of Professional Landscapers and were proud to have been commended by the judges in both categories.

Now in its twentieth year, MN Landscapes has grown into an impressive team of dedicated soft landscaping gardening and hard landscaping professionals. MN Landscapes have invested heavily in their fleet of sign written vehicles with a range of specialist equipment and machinery, enabling the company to handle more involved and technical projects.

Martin Wood said: “Garden landscaping has evolved over the past 20 years. Modern trends are that people are using their gardens as an additional room to their homes for families and social entertaining. In the future, we expect to see an increase in the use of outdoor lighting and preparation & cooking areas as well as a change in design and planting themes to take into account the changing seasons. We are delighted to be offering our garden maintenance services to some of our first clients of now 20 years.”

The product is called the RydaMablet system, which is designed to help those recovering from stroke and other brain injuries in addition to those with dementia and other neurological conditions. As we are local to Norwich, the product is manufactured using local companies.

Catching up with Barenaked Foods

Ross & Richard Osman

If you’re a fan of the BBC television programme “Dragons’ Den” then you probably remember Ross Mendham and Barenaked Foods. The entrepreneur from Norfolk first appeared on the show in 2013, pitching for a £60k investment in his gluten-free noodle business, when things took an emotional turn. Asked about his family, Ross was overwhelmed as he recalled his wife Kelly’s most recent miscarriage and had to leave the den. However, he gathered himself, re-emerged from the famous lift and faced the formidable “Dragons” once more. That was when Peter Jones surprised everybody by offering Ross the investment he needed. The prolific investor immediately saw the clever business idea and the genuine passion of the man behind it.

Three years later and Ross is back in the news – last week saw him interviewed on BBC Radio Norfolk and Look East; featured in the Eastern Daily Press and Radio Times; an appearance on the BBC Breakfast sofa and finally on Sunday, an interview with presenter Richard Osman, for the “Dragons’ Den: Pitches to Riches” follow-up programme.

Ross revealed that with the ongoing support from Peter Jones, Barenaked Foods has now moved from selling a few hundred to 800,000 packs of noodles per week and the business is well on the way to being worth £2 million. His products are on sale in three major UK supermarkets as well as health shops and specialist online stores. Better still, he and Kelly welcomed a baby boy to their family in 2014!

We’re delighted to have been working with Barenaked Foods since 2012, allowing us to experience just a small part of the business’ journey as it has evolved. We’re also very proud of local boy Ross for all his hard work and incredible inspiration!

Barenaked Foods celebrate Waitrose deal

BNF Waitrose-8_SMLow carb, gluten-free pasta specialists Barenaked Foods have signed a deal with Waitrose, the food retail division of the John Lewis Partnership, to sell their range of noodles and rice.

Barenaked Noodles shot to popularity in 2013 following a dramatic pitch on the BBC show “Dragons’ Den” from Barenaked Foods’ Managing Director that secured a £60,000 investment from entrepreneur Peter Jones as business partner.

Barenaked Noodles and Rice are made using the Asian-grown Konjac plant; a miracle plant low in carbohydrates, sugar and calories. Containing only 8 calories per 100g, they can be used as a replacement in meals for carbohydrates such as pasta, spaghetti and standard rice.

Now landing his second major supermarket deal, Managing Director Ross Mendham first developed the product in 2011 whilst looking for an answer to his own weight loss and dietary needs.

Ross said, ”We’re delighted that Waitrose are stocking our original low carb, gluten free noodles and rice. We’ve experienced enormous interest in our range of Barenakedfoods and we’re proud to be able to supply them to a wide range of consumers. Our products really are for everyone – including those with restricted diets, health issues, fitness and training demands or people simply looking for a well-balanced meal plan.”

Waitrose buyer Chloe Graves said “We love working with innovative, smaller suppliers like Barenaked who are endlessly passionate about what they do. Free from products are growing in popularity at Waitrose at a fast pace, so we’re excited for our customers to try these new additions.”

Barenaked Noodles and Rice will be on sale in selected Waitrose stores from Monday 31st August 2015. For more information and tasty recipe ideas for Bare Naked Noodles and Rice, visit the website at www.barenakedfoods.co.uk

EnigMedia Sponsors Norfolk Athlete

EnigMedia Marketing is delighted to announce that we are sponsoring Norfolk athlete Steven Barnes, who has been selected for the Great Britain Age Group Duathlon team.

Barnes race suit 2015Steven will be competing in this year’s ITU Duathlon World Championships in Australia in October after a successful summer of fund-raising. As an “amateur” athlete, Steven has had to pay for the trip as well as all the equipment he will need to compete – and it isn’t cheap!

With the support of friends, family and local businesses, Steven is thrilled to have reached his fund-raising target of £4000 and can’t wait to represent GB at the forthcoming prestigious event in Adelaide. He’s now the proud owner of a Boardman race bike, new trainers, fitness equipment (courtesy of Pilch Sports in Norwich and Tri Harder in Dereham) and a branded GBR race suit!

Steven says: ““I have been so overwhelmed by the kind support shown from my family (especially my wife for putting up with me!), friends, work colleagues and anonymous donators who have contributed to my cause either by cash donations, through my funding page or/and supporting my fund-raising events. Including helping to organise them! I would like to say a massive thank you to EnigMedia Marketing, Broom Boats and Breckland Mowers for their sponsorship, as without their backing my dream of competing for Great Britain was still in doubt. To now be able to say “I will be competing for Great Britain in the World Championships” instead of “I am hoping to” feels fantastic and a massive weight off my shoulders. I would never have been able to say that without everyone’s support – THANK YOU! Training is now in full swing and I will be keeping people updated on my progress via social media.”

We’re very excited to be an ongoing sponsor, alongside established Norfolk businesses Broom Boats and Breckland Mowers. We will be sharing Steven’s race updates for the 2015/16 season – including the big event in October (although the funding doesn’t stretch to a trip to Australia for us!)

Steven’s next Duathlon event will be held in Newmarket, Suffolk on 16th August 2015 – a key event for maintaining his training program and improving on his personal best performance. Why not go along and show your support?
