We all enjoyed the long bank holiday weekend and some sunshine this week with the hope of Spring finally emerging from the frost. There are still plenty of events on until the weekend as well as a host of exhibitions and shows in Bristol. Bristol has again been short-listed for the European Green Capital award for 2015, alongside Brussels, Glasgow and Ljubljana, so we'll keep our green fingers crossed for the result in June.
This week at GWS we've had meetings with solicitors and other companies we are helping with on-line promotion. We're also finishing our new website and working on projects for Clifton College, British Mensa and Tastetech, the flavour encapsulation specialists. We've also been enjoying lovely Spring displays of flowers from Bristol florist The Florist Ltd.
