So far we’ve introduced you to various members of the team here at Treffry towers but we thought as it’s our birthday celebrations at the moment that we should introduce you to the main man, the organ grinder, the boss lady; or Poppy as we also call her!! So we put a few questions together, made her a cup of coffee (she always works better with a coffee inside her, but just one mind!), and sat her down to answer them!
What’s the most memorable moment of the last 10 years running PT?
So.. Thanks Poppy for answering our questions! If you’ve got questions you’d like to put to Poppy Treffry then keep them in mind and keep an eye on our facebook page as we plan to host a live Q and A session with Poppy soon, details to follow.
And join us in a rousing chorus of ‘Happy Birthday to us’!! (check out the picture below for a special birthday treat!)

With the new bathing beauties design added to our range for 2014 we felt it only right that we should make like a bathing beauty and have our first dip of the year. Various members of Team Treffry have been heading to the swimming pool every Wednesday lunchtime for a few lengths but with the pool being closed temporarily we decided there was nothing quite like a bracing dip in the atlantic, in April!
Trouble was, the day we decided we might go for a swim the following day was warm and Spring like and when the allotted swim day arrived it was a proper cold, Cornish grey and mizzly day! A quick facebook and twitter poll decided it though, more people said we should than said we shouldn’t! And after nearly chickening out we found ourselves on the prom in Penzance changing into our swimming things in the persistent drizzle, lovely!
But guess what, it was great, refreshing, rejuvenating, life affirming, and really, really cold!!! We only managed about 5 minutes and getting changed afterwards wasn’t a whole heap of fun (especially as a couple of coats had found their ways into puddles!) but we all felt good afterwards and ready to do it again next week!
We reckon this lot might be swimming on the french riviera in summer rather than off the prom in Penzance in April, we certainly weren’t looking quite this chic!!
Let us know about your bathing beauty experiences!
