Jack Lear has been running an online business for just over 18 months, specialising in all-in-one lycra suits, or 'Body Socks,' as fancy dress costumes. Jack has found a niche in the popular fancy dress market and Body Socks are selling all over the world, with a huge order recently coming in from the Caribbean! When sales began to increase, Jack decided he needed extra space for the storage of the costumes and so took a lease on a property in Pembroke Dock. The 'Small Steps to Enterprise' loan helped Jack in covering the costs of furnishing the property. Check out Jack's website at: Body Socks

It all began as a hobby for Angharad, capturing moments with her friends and scenic shots in Pembrokeshire's beautiful countryside. As her talent grew, Angharad turned her hobby into a business and this year alone has photographed three local weddings alongside her other portrait and corporate works and also her school work.
