19/9/15 Keith & Carole owners of the Rock Gem 'n' Bead shows announce retirement and sale of the company(Rock and Gem Limited)
Retirement & Sale of the Company “Rock and Gem Limited”
"2015 will be the 8th year that we have been running the Rock and Gem shows and we have loved every minute of it – it is hard work but very satisfying. We like to think that we are a large travelling family and we have made a lot of friends.
It is now our intention to retire on the 30th November 2015 to our new home in Northern Cyprus.
You will be pleased to know that the shows will go on – we are selling the company to Samantha and Peter Robinson of Sam’s Rings ‘n’ Things. They are very enthusiastic and have experience in running events and we are sure that they will do a great job.
They will be at all the shows except Brighton for the rest of this year and then after that we will continue to be in the background to ensure a smooth transition takes place.
We would like to thank you all for your support and hope that you will continue to support us until we retire.
I am sure that you will also provide ongoing support to Samantha and Peter. The good news is that the irreplaceable John and Sue Lee are carrying on with their duties and will continue to be great assets of the company.
We wish you all every success for the future.
Keith and Carole"
