There’s a lot to love about Tring, it’s a town of just the right size to have life and colour, not to mention a flurry of wonderful independent businesses to support every need whilst retaining the feeling of intimacy. In recent years it’s developed its foodie credentials with more and more culinary businesses appearing, meaning you don’t have to travel out for great food. Of course, the real jewel in the crown of Tring is its location, right among the Chiltern Hills, so the countryside is quite literally on your doorstep. With the trainline to London a short distance from the town centre, it’s no wonder this is an increasingly popular commuter town.

Having known Lucy Williamson as a Buzz Hub Co member and for her passion for gut health, high quality British food, and building optimum nutrition through real food, I was excited to hear about her latest offering – the Gut Project. Of course, I was even more thrilled to join for the first run of the course and find out what it’s all about and report back!

Have you ever tried Temple Spa products? I’m always amazed by how beautiful they are – such potent and sensual aromas. Once you open the cap, you find yourself immediately transported to the feeling of being in an exclusive spa. They smell so incredibly good…and it’s that kind of smell that comes from essential oils and active ingredients that you know are going to do amazing things for your skin too.

It will be five years in October since I started The Buzz Hub Co. – originally a blog based in Tring about local businesses. If you’ve been with me for a while (I’m so grateful every day for the familiar faces I see and connect with on Instagram), you will know that the blog started as part of my social media training that I undertook as a way to leave my commute and corporate life behind. In the end it took 4 years and a pandemic to finally say goodbye to my corporate life and move away from running businesses as side hustles and, in the place of PAYE, I’ve seen some rather radical personal and business change.
