October marks seven years since I started Little Gray Station which was rebranded to Hampton Event Hire three years later. From such humble beginnings, starting a small business at home as a mum, collecting furniture pieces to hire for weddings and events, from hiring my first employee, having my second baby, my husband quitting his day job to come and work in the business with me, our first "shed", then our "second" shed, to our "first, second, third now forth" warehouse, now employing over 25 staff, owning four trucks and literally walking into what we call a "mini-IKEA" each day....well, I think I deserve a cocktail! Happy Birthday Hampton Event Hire, thanks for giving the opportunity for so many people (our team of course) to put food on the table for themselves and their families. A big shout out to our countless clients over the years and those of you who have been their since the beginning. Without your support, this small business would be a little more difficult. I am truly humbled by the beautiful engaged clients we have worked with, on a personal note it has been fun watching you from being engaged to having a family of your own. Our ongoing clients (you know who you are); some of you I have worked with since the beginning others are new to our HEH family, you are recognised, you are professional, you are a joy to work with - THANK YOU! Ah our team, our HEH family from past employees to present, I am so proud you have joined Kris and I on this journey, through each of you I know I have learnt a lot about being a leader (I will always strive to be better), I hope in return we have been able to teach you something small too.
