It is not only still here but is thriving, new enquiries are coming in continually, events are selling out, they have very happy sponsors, and the Glad Rags brand is expanding.

Mhairi Morriss owner of Glad Rags Events formally known as Jomm Events and founder of Glad Rags & Cartridge Bags beamed with excitement when she explained what has been happening.

She said: “No one on the planet could have had any idea what we were about to go through last March.

"Cartridge Bags is all about face-to-face events, like many businesses it came to a grinding halt one week after our family day which saw record numbers attending Barra Castle.

“But the first lockdown gave me the time to think about how I wanted to expand the business, how to improve what we were offering and to plan for when we were able to get back to what we all love, challenging ourselves, adventures, learning something new, spending time with old friends and meeting new ones.”

Following all the guidelines and adapting to how they held their clay shooting days cartridge bags was able to hold many shooting events before the second lock down, including Glad Rags and Tiaras which was by gracious personal permission of her Majesty the Queen taking place at the Queen’s private estate Delnadamph.

Mhairi continued: “With the second lockdown in place, two feet of snow outside the front door, the swimming pools shut and no taxi duty for our children I had no excuse not to put the ideas I had buzzing around in my head into reality, to expand the business and to develop and launch a new website.”

Glad Rags Events was launched last month.

Working in partnership with other businesses The Working Puppy Company, Twin Peakes Fly Fishing and Hays Flowers they have put together a calendar of unique, fun, educational and exciting occasions.
