Local companies join forces to support local business\n

Two successful local businesses have teamed up to help support each other during the recession

Two successful local businesses have teamed up to help support each other during the recession.

Monkey Music Solihull was set up by Knowle mum Becky Bate just a couple of months ago to offer pre-school music classes to borough babies and toddlers.

The classes have already been a big hit with Solihull families and now Becky has joined forces with The Fallen Angel Bakery, in Solihull High Street, to offer a special treat for her Monkey Music customers.

Becky said: “We’ve teamed up to promote each other’s businesses by offering a great deal to those who have joined Monkey Music. Any child taking their Monkey Music sticker or T-shirt along to Fallen Angel in Solihull, will get a free babycino and chocolate brownie when their adult buys a drink.

“It’s a very simple link-up, but one that other borough businesses should be thinking of in what are tough economic times that we’re very happy to be bucking.”

Paul Gardner, Operations Director for Fallen Angel, added: “We’re delighted to be able to work alongside Monkey Music to offer something extra for the parents and children that attend classes in the area. It’s been lovely showing new visitors to the bakery our fabulous range of savouries, cakes and drinks – we hope to see them all again very soon.”

Award-winning pre-school music group, Monkey Music, launched classes at St Helen’s Church in Solihull, Cheswick Green Village Hall, St George and St Teresa’s in Dorridge and Dickens Heath Village Hall, in September.
