Come & enjoy Christmas at Avebury. We have something for everyone, from carols around the Christmas tree to Yuletide at Avebury Manor.

Evening Event at Avebury.
By popular request, we are extending our opening hours until 6pm on Friday 17th December, so that people can come and see the charming 'Circle of Light' display in the evening when it's looking it's best.
The manor is decorated for Christmas and we have lots going on that you can enjoy. You will find that Avebury Manor is different from most National Trust properties, in that you CAN sit on the furniture, play snooker and lie on the beds.

The Interview

People buy people. There’s a statistic which states that less than 10% of a spoken message is in the actual words said, the remainder being conveyed in the way you look, the way you talk and, generally, the way you come across.

 

At HighLight Media we understand this process intimately, and we’re experts in bringing out and interweaving the three elements that together make a great interview: the person being interviewed, the physical location and the story itself.

Award Winning Business Coach

Question: What’s the best way to improve your golf? Your tennis? Your anything?

Work with a coach. A good mentor identifies and helps eradicate problems, resulting in better long-term performance. That’s why the world’s top sportsmen and women employ them.

PETER ROLLISTON is ActionCOACH’s Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset business expert. He works with small and medium-sized businesses, helping them to manage their resources, market themselves strategically and, most importantly, to grow.

Over the last few years he has coached one-man bands to multi-million pound operations, resulting in every one of the companies increasing its turnover from between 20 – 300%.

Most small and medium-sized businesses fail to fulfil their true potential. Don’t let yours be one of them. Call Joanne on 01373 801 234 to arrange a complimentary Business Health check or to register for one of our free Six Steps to a Better Business seminars.
