Meet the stars of the show
We’re delighted to be showcasing a wide variety of businesses at the Bounce Back for Business e-vent. By opening it to all local enterprises, of whatever size, we’re looking to demonstrate the breadth and variety of talent and entrepreneurship in and around Stowmarket – and to show very clearly the enormous range of skills our town can call upon.
Mill House Media
Our business is telling your story
In the ever-changing world of the internet, content is king. And writing good, engaging content is all about writing good stories.
At Mill House Media we are dedicated to writing stories that tell your target audience about your business in a way they can understand, and relate to, and which will get you known, liked and trusted.
To do that you’ll want people that you, in turn, can know, like and trust. And that’s why we’ve spent the last ten years gathering a first-rank creative team to deliver quality web page content, blog articles, email newsletters and email marketing content, leaflet and brochure wording and video scripts.
Morr Marketing & Social Media
Marketing your business doesn’t need to be difficult.
Getting it right will make a real difference to your business and your life.
In today’s environment, though, it can be a struggle to be heard with so many messages bombarding us 24/7.
Even if you know what you should be doing, it might make you feel uncomfortable at times. But marketing just means making your brand known – your ethos, your personality, your expertise.
Social media has grown up and Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn are now sophisticated marketing platforms. To get the best from them you need to mix them with other marketing methods.
People buy from people they like and trust – whether that’s in real life or online. Morr Marketing can show you how to use marketing to develop that relationship and build your business your way.
Whatever stage you’re at, you can benefit from my experience (and my mistakes!). A variety of practical, hands-on options will set you confidently on the path to gaining more of the customers you want.

Software developer, working to make a difference.
I love working with Digital Creatives, Business Owners, and Product designers.

I’ve always wanted to build better. When the Sinclair ZX-81 computer launched, I discovered that programming was a powerful tool for learning and creativity. Building something from nothing gives me a massive buzz – it’s like painting a picture, but instead, I use computer code.
As a software engineer (coder), I enjoy the intellectual challenge of using technology to solve problems and enhance user experience. It’s all about evolution, not revolution.
Want to know more?
Things I get a buzz from are:
- HTML / CSS

- Hosting, Linux or Cpanel
- C, C#, Java, Python
