What we did this month : November
Well it’s the end of another mental month for us here at the bump offices, and I think it’s fair to say we are feeling very festive! We’ve had birthdays, awards ceremonies and client meetings all over the country in November, and there’s certainly no signs of slowing down!
November started with celebrations, as we had Megan’s birthday on the 5th with lots of suitably Royal-themed presents in the morning before we dashed off to attend the Progressive Preschool Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in the afternoon. Lisa, Chloe and Megan had a fantastic time celebrating with all of the nominees, and live-tweeting the winners as they were announced.

Despite being over 6 months away, planning for Medela’s Big Breastfeeding Café 2020 is underway, which we hope will be even bigger and better than this year’s event! Katie also worked hard on a ‘breastfeeding friendly’ window sticker design which will be sent out to cafes and restaurants all over the country to let breastfeeding women know that they are welcome to feed there.
Another exciting project for us this month has been the UK launch of 30 Seconds, the top selling board game which has sold over 2 million copies sold worldwide to date. We are super excited to see it featuring in lots of the Christmas Gift Guides and to get it into the hands of lots of celebrities and influencers. We also launched the cutest cardigans from Kit & Kin, which are perfect for the colder weather!
BBC Children in Need’s annual Rickshaw Challenge also passed through Hitchin in November, and team bump went along to wish the amazing team of riders well!
The Mother & Baby Awards were a definite highlight of November, if not the whole year! Lisa, Chloe, Hetty & Katie got glammed up and enjoyed a fantastic night of celebration with our clients, some delicious food, and some even more delicious drinks! Fleur East provided the fantastic entertainment, and Sally Phillips was a brilliant compere, with Lisa even getting her to quote one of her Bridget Jones lines!

Planning for next year is in full swing, as 2020 is shaping up to be a very exciting year indeed, and with Bump’s 10th birthday in March, we can’t wait to celebrate!
