Here’s a Little Bit of Information About These Two Lovely Brands….

Fistral Surf School

As we are very lucky and live in Devon, we are surrounded by many beautiful beaches! Although the beach is normally a sunny destination, a winter beach is just as charming and many of us popcorn-enthusiats visit all year round! We even have some wild members of our team that have no reservations about jumping in the sea and will spend a couple hours splashing about on surf boards! (Others prefer to just spectate and keep warm in our woolly hats and gloves!)

With our love of the beach in mind, we are absolutely thrilled that The Fistral Surf School have partnered with us! UntitledFistral Beach is the undisputed home for British surfing with its big sandy beach and famous waves. Sitting at the top of the beach is Fistral Beach Surf School, a family run business that has its doors open all year. The school offers surf, bodyboarding and stand up paddle boarding coaching to all ranges of abilities and ages. Their dedicated and friendly team have over 20 years of experience, and strive to provide professional coaching. All equipment has been carefully handpicked, providing the best quality possible to ensure that you have maximum satisfaction and all equipment is included in the lesson prices. Open all year round, the surf school and hire centre has all the equipment to keep you stoked and toasty no matter what the Atlantic Ocean throws at you, from toasty summers to frosty winters the hire centre has you covered.

Joules

Joules, the very lovely clothing company that is all about family and colour, started over 25 wonderful years ago when Tom Joule started selling clothing at country fairs and events. As our Portlebay Poppery is located in a rather rural part of the country and we looooooove the countryside life, we have to admit Joules is a big YES from us!

Sandy Toes and SeaKisses

Oh we do love to be by the seaside, and so do Jo and Sue! Jo and Sue are the proud owners of the Cornish company SeaKisses, a lifestyle brand which creates seaside inspired homeware and accessories!

SeaKisses Products

This lovely pair both have backgrounds in Media and Graphic Design; Sue used to publish swanky magazines in London, and Jo worked for a company making lovely stationery products. At the beginning of the 21st Century they both found themselves in Cornwall, and discovered a shared love of life by the seaside.

By 2011 they began making framed prints with lovely words about the places they knew in Cornwall. A few kind retailers agreed to sell them and people loved them. Within a few months they realised they had a business with potential and SeaKisses was born!

Living close to the sea means that Jo and Sue see the damage that 21st Century Living has on the marine environment. As a result, they try to seek out alternatives to plastic, with their Travel Cups and Dog Bowls being made from Bamboo Fibre instead! All their linens are also made in Cornwall and they only use water based inks to minimise the effect that they have on the environment.

For a chance to win some SeaKisses goodies and a box of Portlebay Popcorn, head over to one of our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the competition directions for Day 14 of our Christmas Advent Competition! (This launches at 5pm tonight!)
