Emma raises the profile of bunting

A MORPETH businesswoman is calling on town residents to go online and help her raise the profile of bunting at a national level.

Emma Scott, who lives in Espley, has been making a name for herself since starting her Little Bundles enterprise a few years ago and one of her creations was shown on the BBC’s DIY SOS programme earlier this year.

All of her bunting is hand-made. She initially started off making flags for children, but has expanded to weddings, birthdays, Christenings and bespoke designs for other special occasions.

And under the theme of British Bunting, Mrs Scott has entered The Great Exhibition 2012 – a virtual catalogue showcasing different aspects of the UK’s society and culture.

She has received more than 200 votes so far and is the top ranked North East entrant in the Best in Britain Sole Trader/SME Manufacturer category, and not far away from the top 100 nationwide.

Voting closes on Monday and residents can support her bid by visiting www.thegreatexhibition2012.co.uk/greats/British-bunting

There is a quick signing up process to go through before making your vote.
