“Back in 2016, when we were looking for new kitchen space to locate closer to Newcastle, I was recommended John Buddle Work Village. At the first viewing I knew this was the right place for our business – the location, quality of space, flexibility and friendly team sealed the deal for me and I completed an application there and then. The team ensured a speedy turnaround making the whole process really uncomplicated and what I really like about the approach is the culture of the centre. So much so, we’ve been able to grow since taking on our very first unit and now have two workshops and an office. There’s a real community feel that’s been home grown here and you certainly feel it as a tenant here”

“At a time when we knew the business needed to take that next step, we were nervous about signing up for a long-term lease and the options Alex presented us with removed that risk and gave us the confidence to step into commercial premises and we never looked back. She introduced us to new contacts and networks like Entrepreneurs Forum who were based in Buddle too and whilst we awaited the install of broadband, we were able to use a small office in the Work Village yet continue to run our warehousing and customer service ops from the new larger space. We didn’t last in that space long though as our growth intensified and we then took on a whole floor of space within Buddle House, but even that was straightforward with no barriers put in our way enabling us to respond quickly to the growth in sales.”

“We launched Halogen Creative in 2004 and have been in the Work Village from day one. The team are very supportive and have always delivered excellent solutions to help us grow and succeed. The place has a really good vibe and everything you need to make a business thrive”

“What stands out for us is the warm and welcoming ethos from the team, they really do put people right at the heart of everything they do. We moved in during December 2020 and have been delighted. This isn’t just a place where you get a set of keys – it’s so much more than that and as a business owner, it’s very reassuring during these times. During the pandemic we worked together with Alex to manage potential challenges and she continued to ensure health and safety was paramount and I was impressed with the way she was always there for the tenants who rent space in the centres.”
