Barclay's One Small Step Competition





video


We entered a competition to win £50,000! This is our entry video above.

Please click on the link https://www.takeonesmallstep.co.uk/Entry/Detail/401 and 'LIKE' our entry and write a comment if you have something sweet to say! The more the merrier and it looks good for the judges!

The competition is regional so there are 9 lots of £50,000 to win! Our region is the North East and we are up against many brilliant applications (including Sheffield's very own Tea Box, we love their film you should watch it!) so it's going to be a tough competition!
The judges select 3 entries to go through to the next round (announced 11th May) then they're put to the public vote!

Good luck everyone!

One of Last Year's winners: The Papered Parlour


Our favourite regional winner from last year was the Papered Parlour, based in Clapham. Owned by two lovely ladies! They are definitely Cocoa's cup of tea have a look at their beautiful website! They run workshops such as dressmaking and silversmithing, as well as hosting hen parties and even serve tea-based cocktails! I love the sound of one of their dress making classes "Make me a domestic sewing goddess"! We'd love to go and visit them one day for a cuppa, their cafe looks beautiful!



Perhaps we could have Anne's hen do there next year...?!


The North East Region winner: Fidgets

Last year's North Eastern (Sheffield's region) winner, was Fidgets, a hair salon for kids. What a good idea! Think I'd like to go visit myself, looks like jolly good fun!



Cocoa and the Chocolate Factory....................


So if we won the money...Our dream is to make Cocoa's own range of chocolate concoctions, we have been plotting this for some time now and have many crazy ideas! Somebody once said in the Cocoa comments book that Anne and I are Willy Wonka's daughters, that's how we feel hehehe!


We saved our pennies from Easter and went on a chocolate course at the Chocolate Academy last year, since then we have been conjuring up some tasty treats in our own kitchens. We just need some ££s to get us started.

We'll keep you posted!
