Greetings from The Orchard!
This update is all about community. Which means it’s all about you!
A wonderful result of the trying times we've all experienced has been the abundance of support of local businesses such as ourselves. In this newsletter, we want to extend our thanks and keep spreading the love!
fall in love with local
We are hereby deeming this fall the time to show your favourite local businesses some love. If you have a go-to coffee shop or neighbourhood nook you love to frequent, we'd love to shout about it. Reply to this email to nominate your favourite spots and tell us why!
If you are a local Newbury or Berkshire business who is interested in getting involved, give Caitlin a shout!
ap&C local : coming this december!
Whilst we continue to grow, as a proud local business of Newbury, it’s important to us that we are still… local!
Our Apple Print Local retail store will bring our trusted print and design expertise to the centre of Newbury to support local residents and businesses in the community.
We’ll be offering a full range of services including printing, POS, posters, banners, stationary, scanning, photo printing – and more!
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR OUR NEW SHOP FRONT ON MARKET STREET!
AP&C IN SUPPORT OF WEST BERKSHIRE SUICIDE PREVENTION
As part of our ongoing initiatives to support organisations that support the community, we are currently working to develop a new website that ensures all the contact information of local and national mental health organisations is easily accessible to the public.
We believe that everyone has a role to play in reducing the number of suicides and improving support for those affected by suicide. By working together we can have a greater impact and save more lives. Our web design team are working hard to do just that. More to come...
all hands highlights
To round off September, we held our first All Hands meeting since lockdown! It was also our first virtually connected and socially distanced meeting – EVER!
We feel very fortunate to have welcomed an apprentice and 8 new starters to the business since lockdown.
It was a great opportunity to touch base and give shout outs to jobs well done across the business despite the hurdles we have all been met with.
Thanks to Bonsai, our new event platform, and some trusty wi-fi, the team could finally meet as a whole.
Onward and upward!
