Before turning the page on the lovely long summer, we wanted to write a special mention about our colleague Liz Toms. In mid-August the Sloemotion team, (or in truth, a noble few) took part in a Memorial Walk across our stunning Yorkshire Moors in memory of our colleague Liz, who very sadly died this year in May.
Words written by Joff and read out at Liz’s funeral;
Liz had worked for Sloemotion as our Production Manager and then latterly as our Technical Manager. She started working with us in 2007 and very quickly became a central part of the business; she marshalled the troops, she devised production systems (most of which are still in place today) and she researched and experimented with new recipes and ideas for products. Her straight-forward, unfussy personality also made her at times a character to be reckoned with, but that is because she cared.
It was brilliant to have worked alongside an employee with intelligence and a passion for the company which she unfailingly exhibited; she wanted us to progress, to move on and to be successful.
We will all miss you Liz.
