The Week That Was #146… 5 peeks behind the week at Working Word
From Christmas party dos and don’ts to school uniforms and Welsh vineyards via festive social content and waterfall walks, it’s been another busy week at Working Word HQ. Here’s five peeks behind our week.
1. Highlighting office Christmas party no-nos
We are well and truly entering Christmas party season at Working Word and we couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming party (OK, we’re having two). We’ve been working with our client Capital Law to highlight what happens when people let their hair down a little bit too much at the office Christmas party. From disciplinary action to dismissal, people can get it in a lot of trouble for bad behaviour at the annual Christmas bash. Capital Law’s comments have been picked up by the Birmingham Mail, Liverpool Echo and MSN News to name a few - you can read the full piece here.
2. Don’t go chasing waterfalls…
We recently took a trip to the beautiful Henrhyd Falls in the Brecon Beacons to capture some Instagram Stories for Visit Wales.
The results were published earlier this week to Visit Wales’ 138k Instagram followers, hopefully inspiring plenty of winter walks in the gorgeous Welsh countryside
3. The future of school uniforms in Wales
One of the big news stories of last week was the upcoming consultation on the future of uniforms in Welsh schools. We worked with the education team at Welsh Government to produce a bilingual, interactive document that will be used to gather the views of school pupils across the country.
4. Creating engaging bilingual festive content
We’ve been having fun on social this week with Christmas Welsh language content for our client Cymraeg. From festive recipes to fun sharers, the content was used across Cymraeg’s channels and shared with other government partners.
The content went down a storm with one post gaining over 700 comments, 160 reactions and 120 shares.
5. The Grapes of Wales
Back in the summer we spent a day filming for Visit Wales at two of Wales’ finest vineyards, Glyndwr Vineyard in the Vale of Glamorgan and Ancre Hill Estates in Monmouth. We know, we know… it’s a hard life but somebody’s got to do it. The results can be enjoyed in this sunshine infused and vino filled video, which has just been published on Visit Wales’ social media channels. Iechyd Da!

Radnor Preserves takes centre stage at M&S
We don’t know about you but in our humble opinion the Marks & Spencer Food Hall at Christmas time is just about the best place on earth. And this festive season our client, luxury marmalade brand, Radnor Preserves, is taking centre stage in the M&S Christmas food campaign. Take a look here to see Radnor’s beautiful jams, marmalades and chutney’s nestling among some M&S foody faves.
