Starting off this month’s Ding Dong is the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, which we’re happy to say has had a fantastic September. A record number of entries have been sent in to the Awards this year, and we’ve been working hard to announce the shortlisted entrepreneurs.

Much-loved fashion boutique Jon Ian has been busy this month organising Cowbridge Fashion Week, and has been celebrating all things designer with fashion shows and glamorous lunches shining a stylish light on the small but fabulous town.

So, that’s it from us at Front Door. We’re looking forward to spooky season this October and a big birthday for one of our team! In the mean time, keep an eye on the fabulous FD Twitter page for updates on what we’re getting up to.
