November brings darker nights, spectacular fireworks and of course the famous and amazing Somerset Carnival season to lighten the mood! 
As hinted in our new website image, Walton Press are proud and enthusiastic supporters of Glastonbury Carnival. In fact, it has a special meaning for us as the Carnival is where Directors Sandy and Martin first met some 28 years ago - and the rest, as we all know, is history! 
We've been working with the local community for all those years, supporting many good causes and also acting as 'partners in print' for a number of local and community organisations and charities. 
So, we'd urge you to follow our lead and support the Carnival by giving generously, which benefits the many local charities and community projects that receive Carnival donations.  
This year's Carnival is on Saturday November 17th - enjoy the Fun! 
 
Now that we’re rapidly approaching the end of October (and we think it’s safe to mention it) our customers are beginning to think about Christmas!  
 
Specifically, they’re considering options for their Christmas Card designs and messages of goodwill, as well as 2019 Calendars, for staff, suppliers and customers. 
 
We have a wide range of options, from cards with stock images to those selected for your own customised design and personalised messages. Many can also include a donation to a preferred charity. 
 
So, don’t leave it to the last minute - why not get in touch soon to discuss your requirements and options. We’d love to help! 
Sandy Smith, MD of Walton Press, recorded such an interesting and informative interview on Glastonbury FM that it was broadcast twice on the business programme, most recently on 7th September. Her fascinating and informative chat with business presenter Alan Philpott is well worth a listen! Read more and get a link to the podcast... 
August has been a very busy month, especially on the Book front! 
 
Sandy and Martin were delighted to attend the Book Launch for a delightful book that we were asked to produce: ‘The Complete Works of William Catcott’.  
 
This was a community project to publish the poetry of William Catcott, a local baker fondly named ‘The Baker Bard of Wells’, who wrote poetry as he worked his dough and delivered his loaves to the people of Wells back in the 1800’s. 
We’re also hard at work on another Book, intriguingly titled: ‘The seduction of Mr PETTIGREW’. 
 
This is very much Mr Bean meets Frank Spencer - the hilarious tales of a man plagued by happen-chance and his series of misadventures whilst being pursued by the formidable Mrs Mountjoy.  
 
Sandy has had the privilege of proof-reading this delightful book and has been chuckling away in the office at Mr. Pettigrew’s antics! 
If you're writing a book, or have a manuscript that you'd like to self-publish, then why not give us a call - we're able to produce a wide range of book formats and have plenty of experience, so we'd love to hear from you! 
After the recent double-winning success at the Mendip Business Awards and some lovely feedback from our customers, we’ve been in demand (and print) across the local media. Managing Director Sandy Smith has also just recorded an interview with local radio station Glastonbury FM which is due to air after the summer holidays on 7th September. 
 
During the interview Sandy talks about her experiences of running a family business for over 25 years, and provides some fascinating insights into the challenges and pitfalls, as well as the rewards of working with a small team and some excellent local companies. There are sure to be some useful tips for anyone in a family business or who is considering a new start-up venture. Don’t miss it at 6pm on Friday 7th September! 
Following our success at the Mendip Business Business Awards we've received a large number of emails and messages from our customers, congratulating us on our awards - too many for us to reply individually! 
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your very kind and generous messages; they've been greatly appreciated by the whole team at Walton and mean a lot to us. 
 
Of course we never would have been in this position without your support, and so we'd also like to thank all our customers, whether large or small businesses, organisations or individuals, for your continued loyalty. 
 
It's been a pleasure for us to work in the Mendip area and this amazing community for so long, and we look forward to continuing our working partnerships with you all for many years to come! 
THANK YOU! 
The Walton team.
