DIARY: Christmas Eve, church handbags and Firefly's Walker meets Pittham

Details have emerged of how ex-Weber tech boss Cathy Pittham ended up at rival Firefly, last week.

Pittham had met Firefly MD Claire Walker at pitches and industry events in the past, but they first spoke last Christmas Eve. Walker's children were causing havoc in church, leading her to worry what the person behind would think of her: 'I turned round and was mortified to see Cathy,' she recalls.

A cheer was raised when it transpired Pittham and Walker's mother had identical handbags. Or almost identical: 'Mum's was £15 - Cathy's was the £600 real thing.'
