21 years sailing away…and coming of age

We can hardly believe this, but its 21 years since we first met Emma  - and she is one of our favorite people! Emma works at Arrow ECS, which has undergone several incantations since 1991 when the company was called Level V.

In this world of change it is good to know that it is still possible to keep up to date with technology, trends and styles and yet maintain a strong working relationship.

The picture shows Emma’s daughter Selina and husband Simon (a qualified sailing instructor) showing her the ropes…or is it the other way around?!

Congratulations to Emma on the recent birth of her second daughter Eve – who will have to get used to the outdoor life too no doubt!

How big is your dog?

...or your cat for that matter...!

Parkhouse Evans have recently teamed up with Crown Pet Foods to develop a website specifically aimed at helping pet owners understand the problems associated with their pets health. 

Slim Fit Pets has a “Body Score Count” system where owners can identify their pets body type and via a range of easy to answer questions drill down to an easy to understand result – giving advice about diet and possible issues. 

The site will also include guidelines for pet care, vets advice, movie clips, galleries and twitter and blog feeds. The images are only visuals at this stage with the real site due to go live in November.
