First Christmas Open Day

We recently welcomed a mix of both members of the public and  more than 60 small business owners to their festively decorated Calne offices on Small Business Saturday (December 3) to celebrate another successful and fun-filled year in business.

With our roots firmly in Calne, Black Nova bosses Kyle and Danielle Holmes wanted to throw open their doors and welcome both members of the local community as well as business owners and clients. The real purpose of this Open Day was to invite others to join in on the festive fun, sharing in the BND team spirit for free, at a time where many may be cutting back on events, dinners and days out or for those who might not have a team to celebrate with at Christmas.

Whilst the focus was most definitely on celebrating Christmas, the event gave individuals the opportunity to discover more about the business and the services we can offer. A firm favourite with the public over the past year has been our Build A PC Days for children locally whilst raising money for charity.

Founder, Kyle said: “Running your own business can be lonely, particularly for the first few years. Suddenly there are no social events, no ‘water cooler’ moments and no Christmas bash. We wanted to have an open day and Christmas Party to invite business owners and members of the public from Wiltshire who wanted to share some festive cheer.

The event was a success and included food and drinks complete with the Black Nova Designs logo on, from local businesses Fluffy Puffin and Little Grazey, as well as a charity raffle for a hamper of goodies worth over £250. The raffle consisted of donations from other businesses and clients of the hosts, such as BlocOChoc, Femme Magazine, Zozo Thomas and many more, this raised £65 for local charity, Wiltshire MIND.

Managing Director, Danielle said: “We’d like to thank everyone who came along to celebrate Christmas with our team and to celebrate our vibrant and growing small business sector in Wiltshire on Small Business Saturday 2022!”
