More front page news about myself in the Nottingham Post.
About three weeks ago I had an interview with Eric Petersen from the award winning newspaper - Nottingham Post - about my involvement in Tesco's Love Every Mouthful - steak advert. A day later a photographer came to the store in Beeston to take photos of myself for a proposed article. Time went on and every day I checked the paper to see if my interview had been published. By last weekend I had almost given up thinking that perhaps the interview would not, after all, be published at all.
Today I went into work at some ungodly hour to set up the fish counter due to other staff members being away on holiday and I thought to myself: "Well I'll just have a look at the Nottingham Post in my local newsagent to see if perhaps...
This was at 5.25am on a chilly Tuesday morning. As I looked blearily through the open shop door I was rather surprised (and delighted ) to see that I appeared to be appearing on the front page!!!! With three minutes to spare before the bus arrived I dashed in and bought a copy to read on the bus.
Inside the newspaper I found that not only did I have the front page but a nice article about my passions for food and my job at Tesco and my blog accompanied with some pictures. Apologies for the poor quality of these images but they are photos of the actual newspaper images, edited.
I have had some nice comments from supportive members of staff at Tesco especially my store manager Tammy Andrews and my counters manager Carol Pickering.
