November newsletter out now!
The year is speeding to an end and with traditional autumnal celebrations behind us it is, once again, time to plan for the Christmas season, arguably one of the busiest times in the calendar here at WH.
Packed full of ideas for products to tempt your customers, the November brochure has some great offers to help make Christmas special, including deals on frozen pastry cases which, combined with a reduced price of only £20.75 for 12.5kg of John Morley’s Mincemeat would create the perfect mince pie. This offer is available during November only, while stocks last, hurry now so you don’t miss out! Beckett’s’ Christmas Gammon is a steal at only £3.25 per kilo. With a buy two and get the third free on Satin crème cake mixes and a 10% discount on Macphie icing and filling ranges you can really get creative with your baking.
Being a family run business we take immense pride in the qualities of our work colleagues and have been lucky over the years to have had some fabulous people working with us. We have recently welcomed a new, full time delivery driver, David Thompson, to our expanding team of five HGV’s. Joining us with over 12 years’ experience in HGV driving, David will spend the next few months in training, learning the routes, meeting customers and developing an understanding of our product ranges. Already proving he has an excellent work ethic, we are confident that David will have a bright future with WH. Be sure to give him a warm welcome when you meet him.
After completing a twelve week probation period our new relief delivery driver, Tom Elmy, has also joined the WH family. Proving himself to be a great asset to the delivery team Tom fits in well with everyone and nothing is too much trouble for him.
As we mentioned in our previous newsletter, our Sales Director, Gerry, will be retiring from the WH family at the end of the year and, in the New Year, Paul Howden will inherit Gerry’s customers. Over the coming weeks Paul will be introduced to his new customers and, although Gerry will be a hard act to follow, he is keen to ensure that the excellent relationships Gerry has forged with everyone will be maintained. We are confident that the exceptional service levels that customers have enjoyed over the last five years will be continued by Paul.
Thank you to those of you who follow us on social media, we hope that you are enjoying receiving our regular updates and, of course, the chance to enter our online competitions. We recently gave away a prize of a hamper of chocolate goodies, courtesy of Callebaut, to Jane Willis, who responded on Twitter to guess the number of Salted Caramel Gold Callets in a 2.5kg pack. Being only 10 Callets out from the correct amount of 4962, congratulations go to Jane as well as to the lucky person who had to count the Callets! Look out for more competitions on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest and don’t forget to sign up online for our newsletter.
As always, thank you to all our valued customers, from everyone at WH
