5 December: Meet Jenny and Winning Works

Jenny's already loving the idea of a turkey sandwich...

We open today’s door to find the wonderful Jenny Hyde, our Senior Engagement and Learning Manager. Jenny’s face will be familiar to many of our sellers, as she leads the Partner Community team here. Jenny’s passion for all things notonthehighstreet.com meant that we absolutely had to give her this gorgeous bespoke ‘We Love notonthehighstreet.com’ sign by Winning Works to show off on day five.

About Jenny

This year will be a rather different Christmas for Jenny… She’s taking the trip of a lifetime to Papua New Guinea. After working over the Christmas break for four years, we thought it might be time she had a good long holiday.

Which product has made it to the top of your list for Santa?

It’s impossible to choose just one product… I’ve got this Anatomy Of The Heart Hand Painted Brooch by Vivid Please on my wish list, and I don’t think anyone can have enough of Nkuku’s Kiko Glass Frames.

What’s your favourite Christmas treat?

I absolutely love leftover turkey sandwiches – my mum’s turkey, plus stuffing, plus mayonnaise is irresistible.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

River by Joni Mitchell.

About Winning Works

Winning Works in Derbyshire creates personalised signs and gifts that can be given as a truly thoughtful present. Cathy uses slate and wood as a basis for her unique designs. The materials are mostly reclaimed, and Cathy loves to think of their past as she crafts each piece and gives it new meaning for the future.

Christmas is a very busy time for Cathy – not only is she working hard on all the festive orders but she has three Christmas Eve birthdays to prepare for! She and her family rush to get everything ready by the 23rd so they can all relax and enjoy the birthday celebrations.

How does your personalised sign epitomise notonthehighstreet.com for you?

At Winning Works, being part of notonthehighstreet.com truly enables us to live a life less ordinary. We still work long hours, but we can be flexible – I can walk the dog at 3pm in the afternoon! Plus our daily commute is down to just a few yards. The support we receive as a business from notonthehighstreet.com has been fantastic.

What’s your favourite Christmas treat?

Making snowballs with homemade egg flip!

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Nina Simone’s ‘Little Girl Blue’ to the tune of Good King Wenceslas.
