Last night Lisa and I went out for dinner at the Kyneton Town Hall.....with another 100 or so local business owners and operators from the Macedon Ranges.
We had been nominated, by person/s unknown, for the Excellence in New Business Award and I'm very proud to say we won.
As per usual neither Lisa or I had prepared a speech.......so we just thanked everyone. It's a welcome pat on the back and validation for our small business which is still in relative infancy, given we've only been up and running for 6 months.
There's still a lot to do before Rundell & Rundell reaches our full expectations. A small part being the opening of our new front room at the shop. It's a dedicated Winter lounge, with an open fire, leather lounges and arm chairs and even an original English Hood Skittles table for people to enjoy a game or two over a beer, cider or perhaps a glass of Lisa's mulled wine.
I'll post a few photos of the new room tomorrow, when it has one or two people enjoying the space. If you're in the neighbourhood, be sure to drop in. Cheers!
