And just like that, it’s 2019… A New Year marks a new beginning for lots of us. We inundate ourselves with New Years resolutions.. Eat more fruit, eat less meat, drink more water, drink less beer. At River & Bear, our resolution was to not leave our monthly roundups so late but here we are on January 3rd reflecting on the month of December.. maybe we’ll try again next month. Anyway, here’s what we got up to in the month of December…

Ola Went To Newport

Our clients at Ola stretched themselves beyond the streets of Cardiff and headed to Newport for an on the ground promotional shift. Promoters were busy on the ground from 8am creating brand awareness in the city for these newly introduced Uber rivals. Promoters could be found handing out a variety of Ola branded merchandise, from sustainable and environmentally friendly, Ola branded tote bags for Christmas shoppers, to Ola branded shortbread cookies, after all, what’s Christmas without a couple of sweet treats? Did you catch any of our promoters in Newport?

Street Food Warehouse

Our sister company Street Food Warehouse has been hard at work ready for the arrival of 2019 where we’re hoping for a bigger and better year for street food. December saw the confirmation of street food vendors for another two festivals in Devon and Sussex! We’ve got our fingers and toes crossed here at River & Bear for another summer of sunshine and good food! Keep your eyes peeled for brand new information on the Street Food Warehouse social media!

A Fond Farewell

At the end of December, we bid farewell to our PR & Campaign Coordinator, Georgina Dransfield. Georgina worked closely with charity portal, 1Step2Be and the newly launched, PB Performance Gym and was responsible for some of our most recent campaigns, including the launch party & open day of PB Performance – which you can read about here. Not forgetting to mention, Georgina was the brilliant author behind some of your favourite River & Bear blogs! We wish her the best of luck in her career endeavours!
