Here’s the list.
We’ve landed in position 208, based on our last published accounts for the period Dec 18 – Nov 19. Since then we’ve grown by over 80%, and our current performance would put us within the top 100.
Members of the Solent 250 club include Lush, Wiggle, Sunseeker, Hobbycraft, Fat Face and Farrow & Ball.
All in all, this is a pretty impressive achievement that shows just how far we’ve come in 10 years.
