Last weekend saw our annual conference take place after what feels like a long 24 months since our last one.

It was so lovely to get our franchisees together again, and while our numbers may have dwindled over the pandemic it is quite clear our enthusiasm and dedication have not.

We decided as numbers were small this time to head over to South Yorkshire where the lovely Alanna hosted us in her fabulous new play café. We loved getting to check out her new business.We started the day with some First Aid training for all the Franchisees. This is now a requirement of all who own a Mess Around Franchise to have First Aid training and to carry a basic first aid kit. I want all our customers to be at ease when attending and safe in the knowledge that should anything happen there is someone nearby who can help. The session was incredibly informative and a great refresher for us. We have decided that this will now form part of our annual conference each year to ensure we remain up to date with all the latest changes.

As well as training our Franchisees on branding and marketing we also spent some time looking at our 2022 programme. We are excited to be bringing back some messy favourites and introducing two BRAND NEW themes for next year. We are going to make sure that 2022 is messier than ever!



The fabulous Steph from Slime Lab East Cheshire took us through some Slime training and we had lots of laughs creating two Slimetastic slimes!                                      

We finished the afternoon with our Mess Around recognition awards. All of our Franchisees work extremely hard and it is important to me that this is recognised.

Huge Congratulations go to:

We then had time to let our hair down and get to know each other more over dinner and drinks!
