Little did two intrepid PR Week staff know what they were getting into
when they set off on a visit to Craigie Taylor International’s Surrey
After missing their train due to a malfunctioning tube, the pair
boarded the next train which got as far as Epsom before stopping for
good, courtesy of a lorry hitting a bridge.
Next our city slickers tumbled out and hailed a black cab. The cabbie
consulted his atlas to find the village and, on letting a vehicle
pass, remarked that: ‘they don’t get many cars round here’.
But country living did pick up when they reached their destination - two
and a half hours after setting off. Craigie Taylor’s welcome was as warm
as a summer meadow.
Deborah James, a Craigie Taylor director, says: ‘Our location is not
usually a problem. The gods obviously felt that the PR Week duo hadn’t
had a stressed enough day.
