We do hope you and your family are safe and well, this has been a tremendously stressful time for us all.

Over the last few months, we’ve been doing all we can to support our local communities, including marketing to create a local neighbourhood friend scheme to support the most vulnerable, children’s colouring competition to keep the little ones entertained and allowing researchers to use our idle office computers to help analyse and aid research for a vaccine for COVID19!

And the sense of community has been overwhelming, whilst we all find ways in which to help each other and support one another through these tough times while adapting to the new “norm”.

Adapting your business requires flexibility and an open mind, particularly if your business offers a service that would be challenging to achieve with the new social distancing rules, but everything is achievable and all challenges can be overcome.

We have seen a huge upward trend towards digitalisation, businesses are adapting their strategies and moving otherwise physical services online, perhaps they have introduced a subscription-based business model to help them with re-occurring revenues or started selling a product with a slight change on their core strategy. The point is, the consumer trend is changing and therefore businesses are coming up with new angles and initiatives to keep consumer interest and sales heading upwards.

And take this opportunity to re-evaluate your goals and business objectives, creating and breaking down your purposes into smaller achievable targets so that you feel proud and energised when you reach them rather than overwhelmed at the thought of getting there.

Here at Harris Consultancy our core objective has always been to offer help and support, obtainable through our free business advice programme. We will help you with any ideas you have and develop them digitally to use throughout your business. We are not just award-winning social media and web developers, we’re in the heart of the community helping and supporting local businesses.

Our social media and website packages offer excellent value for money in addition to our free longer term commitment to helping you grow your business – We don’t just want to build you a website and walk away, and we don’t want to silently manage your social media in the background, we’re committed to helping you with any business queries you may have, any thoughts on your strategy, after all two heads are better than one and small businesses don’t always have that opportunity to bounce ideas around. Harris Consultancy is committed now more than ever to continue to develop bright ideas for local business and will do all we can to help you succeed.

Our website packages start from £39 per month and social media management from £69 per month. We can also come up with a bespoke solution for you if our packages don’t quite fit your needs!

If you would like to reach out to us to discuss any of the above, or perhaps to look at your strategy in further detail, then please contact us:

Pure strength ❣️Josh Powell, husband of Zoe, 29, and father to Phoebe, 8, Simeon, 6, Amelia 4, and Penny, 18 months, has today released a tribute following last week’s tragic road traffic collision on the A40 in which Zoe, Phoebe, Simeon and Amelia died.

Please read tribute below ⬇️

"My Family"

“Before the adventure of starting a family, nobody truly knows what to expect. All of life’s preconceptions and what we see in the world around us meant that life as a family man was so much better than I expected it to be.

“I had been blessed with four wonderful children, whose thirst for life and hunger of adventure kept me busy but in the best possible way.

“As I look to an uncertain future, I reflect on the fun that we had as a family, with feelings of sadness that it was cut so short.

“Phoebe was my first daughter, and was the model of her mother but with a thirst to always know more. Regularly we would adventure and explore the world together. She was clever and able to make great jumps of imagination - her great creations in Lego are testament to this.

“Simeon was just like his father, with a mischievous sense of humour and desire to know more of the world. A keen sportsman, he had been due to play in first football match this week.

“He shared the kind heart of his sisters and wouldn’t be happier than when he knew that everyone was ok.

“Amelia was kind and spirited. Her tenderness and thoughtfulness much more advanced than her years.

“Her ability to dance and express herself was a true blessing, with an abundance of self-confidence. Tied down by no element of practicality she had the most vivid dreams imagination.

“Myself and Zoe were as different as we were alike. Despite the frequent tensions this would bring, it was of immense benefit having such differing world views.

“Our children benefited from this in having adventures but also the quiet to talk. Zoe was a dreamer; with a head spinning of new things to do or tales to tell. More than anything, we made a great partnership to raise a family.

“I want to thank everyone who has rushed to put their arms around to us to support me and Penny.

“As a family that have always preferred understated calm and brevity, it has been a revelation the benefit of the deep wider relationships now I’ve lost my immediate nuclear family.

“There are many battles to come, and I thank everyone who has stood by me and Penny thus far.

“We are well supported and know to ask if anything is needed.

“Now we have the time to readjust and grieve, this is the challenge of the abundance of loss we feel as a family.

“Thank you to those who have respected our space and supported us thus far, and given us the time and space to do this.”

Condolences - taken from Chinnor Parish Council Facebook page.....

“As a close Chinnor community, we are all so saddened and shocked to hear about the tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers to everyone.
St Andrew's Church is open every day between 11am and 5pm for private prayer, lighting a candle and a book of condolence.

The Chinnor Community Church on the High Street has created a space for flowers to be laid for the family. CCC has a cross outside to lay flowers under. The chapel will be open for private prayer, reflection, and a book of condolence for the next 2 weeks on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10.00 am - noon; also, Fridays from 2.00 - 4.00 pm.

On Monday the 19th October from 7pm the Scout Troop and their leaders will be walking through the village on their way to hold a candle lit vigil for Josh and his baby daughter.

At 8pm we will be holding a 1 minute silence in remembrance of Zoe, Phoebe, Simeon and Amelia.
We are hoping that the residents of Chinnor would also light a candle and hold a 1 minutes silence at 8pm either on your doorstep or in your house to help guide them on to the next part of their journey and to hold Josh and his baby daughter in your hearts and thoughts. Turn Chinnor Green for the Powell family.

CPC will observe a 1 minute silence during their Finance zoom meeting at 8pm.”
