ITV Border Report – Behind the Scenes

Did you see Playdale on the news?

On the back of our recent export success we were delighted to be featured in a report for ITV Border news which was broadcast on Sunday 18th January.

Fiona Marley Paterson, ITV Border reporter, visited our head office in Haverthwaite to interview our Managing Director John Croasdale and take some shots from around the business. It was a great experience and we were really pleased to see the final report go on air to the England/Scotland border region.

Here’s a behind the scenes look at the day.
