An interactive music movement class for babies and toddlers which hosts weekly classes in Croxley, Watford, Hemel Hempstead and Stanmore, has been recognised as part of national small business campaign launched by Vodafone.
Noise Makers like many businesses were forced to change overnight when the pandemic hit last year but have taken it in their stride and moved to online and pre-recorded sessions.
Elise Betts, owner of Noise Hands said she is still on “cloud nine” after finding out she had been selected as part of the Vodafone Shout out for Small Businesses campaign.
She said: “It was such a big campaign and I thought I didn’t have any chance but then they contacted me to say I was one of the 10 businesses.
“I was honestly in so much shock, once I had entered I had put it to the back of mind so when the email came through I thought it was going to be a rejection.
“I am absolutely on cloud nine, so many small businesses have struggled so this feels like it was almost all worth it.”
As part of being selected in the campaign, Elise will be offered support and mentoring from experts to help with her website and social media.
She said: “They will work one to one with me on the digital side and give me some mentoring on my website and social media engagement.
“The biggest thing is that Vodafone will do shoutouts on their social media page which will be huge.”
Elise added that she is looking to welcoming back babies, toddlers and parents in-person.
She said: “So many parents have also missed out, it’s so important for them and there will have been so many lockdown babies so it will be lovely to return in April.”
