Our review of 2017 highlights business and charity success

As a new year dawns at Howle HQ, we felt it was a good time to look back at 2017.
We have had the privilege to bring you some amazing success stories and we’ve listed some of the highlights below.
We’ve helped businesses mark their anniversaries, provided news on MBEs for bosses at Titanic Brewery and KMF and chronicled stories of growth and job creation.
Howle Communications were also delighted to work with KMF on the company’s National Apprenticeship Awards entry, which saw them take first place in the North West awards and with Rydale Roofing as they were awarded runner-up spot in the Midlands Family Business Awards.
Nigel Howle also worked on the successful Britain in Bloom 2017 campaign with Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council which saw the area win the National Small City category.

Happy New Year!
