Because of this, we now have a community of clients here in Inverness who have used Trusted Travel Buddies services, and so there was only one thing for it really- Time to PARTY!!!
Our first summer event happened in June 2021. This was a wonderful opportunity for all our clients to come together, meet the team, answer any questions they may have, meet new friends, and share their travel experiences with each other.
We are all about Supporting and encouraging local fellow Businesses, so we chose the “Bikeshed Coffeehouse” on Grant Street, Inverness for our venue.
The newly award winning “Grazey Days” provided the catering for us all. They ensured that each person had our own individual box with lunchtime goodies packed. Gluten free? no problem! Vegan? No problem! Grazey Days can cater for all dietary requirements.
We were absolutely delighted when Kenny Jamieson and Stuart Mackintosh who make up the fabulous Scottish folk band "Schiehallion" popped in to provide us with 5star Entertainment. They began as a duo, however as the afternoon progressed, their band soon increased by clients who wished to join them for solo singing - a right good ceilidh was had!
The wonderfully talented Morag Aquino made a showstopping cake for us in the design of a suitcase which went down a treat.
After the success of our first Trusted Travel Buddies event, we are already looking forward to our next winter event to be held in December 2021. This is something that we certainly wish to continue with, perhaps even expanding with in 2022. Watch this space…
While we are here, we would also like to give a massive thank you and shout out to other local businesses who have been involved with the growth and progression of Trusted Travel Buddies.
