Reasons to stay in the UK this year!

We may be a little biased, but here at White Heron Properties we strongly believe that nothing beats a holiday in the UK. It reconnects to when we were children and would spend many happy days on a British beach! There are some many undiscovered and beautiful places to visit. To help you we have compiled a list of reasons why we’re all about staycations and staying on home turf this year:

Food Festivals 2016

We hope that spring has now sprung and that summer is just around the corner. Being foodies, summer means just one thing for us, food festivals! The great thing about a food festival is that it brings together all the very best produce in one space!

Jo Hilditch took to The Den

Last Sunday, our Founder, Jo Hilditch took to the Den to find out if she could find the right investor and partner amongst the well-known Dragons in her quest to expand British Cassis.

Pitching for £50k in return for 10% of the British Cassis business, Jo’s cocktails went down a storm and she had soon won the approval of Deborah Meaden, Sarah Wilkinson and Peter Jones. And whilst he didn’t make a formal offer, it was clear that Nick Jenkins took a liking to the products too, as he drank both his own Raspberry Daquiri and Touker Suleyman’s too.
