The last of British Summertime

The last of British Summertime

Autumn term round-up:

We hope you had a chance to enjoy the last of British Summertime!

Here at the Red Potato patch, we’ve been doing some fun video and animations for our great clients. Here is a quick round-up of some of the fabulous projects we’ve been involved with recently:

Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (Herts LEP) have a made a big commitment to engage young people with Enterprise.  This commitment includes promoting the links between schools and businesses. As part of our work with Herts LEP we’re producing an infographic showing labour market intelligence. The aim of the infographic is to help the Hertfordshire Enterprise Advisors work with schools on careers topics.   If you are interested there are lots of ways you too can become involved via the #Unexpectedmentor campaign

We’ve really enjoyed working with the friendly folk at Wycombe District Council and local businesses such as The Works.  For too long some local business parks and town centres have been neglected. As a result, small things like traffic light phasing, electronic signs not working, overgrown vegetation can quickly make an area look unloved.   So Red Potato staff have been working with local business to get them engaged with improving the space outside their front door.  By working with Business Improvement Districts and business, local authorities can make changes to an area.  The result is that businesses decide to stay and hopefully more businesses become attracted to locate in the area.  Simples!

Beyond Summertime, looking forward to Christmas:

Good luck to all of those people who participated in the #StepIntoHospitality course.  The Red Potato team delivered the course on behalf of Welwyn Hatfield Council.  The course helps local people to apply for jobs in the local hospitality sector and also enables them to sit the exam for Level 2 Food Safety.   Most of all, following the exam, we had another very strong pass rate, which was great to see!  The latest cohort of delegates are now well on their way to securing a job in hospitality and catering.  Well done everyone!   It is going to be a busy time in the run up to Christmas!

Finally, if you’d like to relive summertime; the festivals, food and fun, do have a look at the dogs and their owners enjoying @TheGameFair in Hatfield during July!
