Town walk is hot stuff after Dragon's Den star gives seal of approval

A REAL life dragon has given Stratford Town Walk his seal of approval.

Former Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis selected the tourist business which offers guided walks, as one of six weekly winners during Small Business Sunday.

The weekly initiative, set up by the multi-millionaire retail entrepreneur in 2010, identifies and supports small businesses in the UK and less than one in a hundred applicants are named a winner.

Stratford Town Walk founders John and Helen Hogg were recently invited to attend an SBS winners event, including

motivational speakers, workshops, and marketing advice, at the ICC in Birmingham.

Helen said: “We are really pleased that Stratford Town Walk attracted the eye of ex Dragon’s Den Theo Paphitis as there are not many SBS winners in the Stratford/Warwickshire area.

“This excellent initiative shared the big business success and experience of others with smaller businesses like ours. We were able to network with other winners from all over the country. Undoubtedly a key to our success and one of our greatest assets is the Stratford Town Walk team of guides who share this accolade.”

Stratford Town Walk, set up in 2002, provides guided walks every day of the year, Saturday evening ghost walks and private tours for groups.
