Mersey business woman Su Grainger celebrated the latest chapter of business success with close friends, colleagues and other local businesses last week when she opened her fantastic new training space.
Founder of 'Singing Our Socks Off', singing groups open to all abilities, Su has now developed her own rehearsal space thanks to Stepclever funding. Although Su will still run her groups across the county at various community venues, this exciting new office space will provide a regular venue where Su will offer one to one singing and speech training, as well as group rehearsals.
Based in Studio 11 of the St Mary's Complex in Waverly Street in Bootle, Singing Our Socks Off joins a whole host of other creative businesses taking advantage of this creative hub housed in the former primary school.
Those who attended the opening were treated to a performance from some of Su's students who joined together in African song in the communal hall at the Studios, an additional space that the incubated businesses have shared use of.
Train 2000's Enterprise Manager Jackie Williams (pictured with Su), who supported Su in the initial stages of setting up her business attended the event and commented:
"It's fantastic to see Su's business go from strength to strength. She is an inspiration to other business women, and testament that sheer determination does pay off."
