Journalist turns to providing for stag parties

A former journalist has set up a business catering for stag parties, hen parties and other events for groups of up to 20 adults.

Former Bradford Telegraph writer Sue Greenwood has set up a website selling theme-based cocktail party packs, according to holdthefrontpage.co.uk.

Lovecocktails.co.uk is being marketed as a good choice for student house parties, dinner parties New Year's Eve celebrations and James Bond theme nights, as well as being a warm-up activity for a stag night or hen weekend.

The business supplies the ingredients and instructions, leaving party guests to mix their own cocktails.

Ms Greenwood explained that journalists have to become experts in all sorts of subjects within a short space of time and this has helped her adapt to the entrepreneurial lifestyle.

"So picking up the skills and knowledge you need to try something new - whether it's developing software or selling cocktails - is something I think we're naturally better at," she said.

The website is the second online business the former journalist has set up this year - she played a major role in creating sweeble.com, which allows Brits to self-publish magazines and newspapers.

Other popular stag party activities include paintball, quad biking, archery and clay pigeon shooting.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19457824-ADNFCR
