Team39 ventured out to play in late July, down to Glentress to try out the Go Ape circuit. It’s pretty safe to say that all 5 were suitably terrified to a greater (Jules) or lesser (John) degree! The whole challenging adventure culminated in a seriously long and (flippin’ high) death slide, which took our intrepid Steppers a few moments to compose themselves with some self-talk before launching into the unknown! Great time had by all, and so proud we made it to the end.
Check out our videos below (any shaking is due to camera shudder and not knees, you understand!) and the photos on our Facebook page.

We are delighted to have been appointed by Fife-based funeral directors Crosbie Matthew to revamp their brand, website and subsequent brochureware. Established in 1939, Crosbie Matthew moved into larger premises and increased local market share, and now it’s time for evolution. Furthering our niche in the funeral sector (yes, funeral firms also need to promote themselves!), we’re really look forward to working with such a nice bunch of people.
Not managing to get to much at the festival this year, Julie was really happy to have at least seen ‘Whatever Gets You Through The Night‘ – a theatre performance featuring live music, great acting and multimedia. It’s a series of scenes with a variety of different characters, giving the audience a taste of what they’re up to when the sun’s gone down. Highlights were the taxi scene (‘all I want is a chippy!’), girl schmoozing her old flame on facebook, and some effortless acrobatics. Fantastic original score too – available to buy online.
Julie is channelling her evening’s creative energy into craft things, a la Emma. Given a spanking new sewing machine for her birthday, Julie is most chuffed at being able to thread the darn thing without aide memoir. No pair of jeans is safe though, as she embarks on her passion for creating denim bunting for anyone who wants it. Think a wee bit eighties, wee bit punk – bit of metal, buttons and seams et voila! Three year wait, mind – she needs to swot up on her blind/running/whojamawotsit stitching!
Julie recommends ‘Whatever Gets You Through The Night’.
