Talk about ‘hitting the ground running’ when you start a new job. Cheryl South joined the online and wholesale sales team at Rhug Estate near Corwen, Denbighshire, in March, just days before Covid19 meant the country was in lockdown and online sales of Rhug organic meat went through the roof!

Cheryl, Rhug Estate’s new Retail & Online Sales Assistant, is from Betws y Coed originally and now lives in Penmachno. Before joining the sales team at Rhug she worked in the retail and customer service sector, which took her around the UK and abroad including Dubai and Europe.

Lord Newborough, Owner of Rhug Estate said, “I am delighted to welcome Cheryl to the team at Rhug. Cheryl has certainly hit the ground running! Her previous experience means she is a huge asset to our team. Within weeks of her starting, the business has been turned on its head and is now almost wholly reliant on online and wholesale sales of our organic meat. The sales team have gone above and beyond the call of duty since the lockdown working hard to fulfil our customers’ orders.”

Day to day Cheryl processes Rhug’s mail orders and key account orders. She manages telephone orders and answers customers’ queries. She also manages the content for the online shop: www.rhug.co.uk/shop

Cheryl said, “I’m delighted to be working with Lord Newborough and the team at Rhug. Rhug Estate is such a diverse business and yet at its core is organic farming. I’m pleased to be working with a fabulous team of people in the most amazing surroundings.”

In her spare time Cheryl enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She makes the most of the beautiful north Wales countryside by walking, running and cycling.

Lord Newborough added, “I would like to thank all our customers for their continued support. We appreciate their loyalty. We are looking forward to everything going back to normal. Please take care everyone.”
