The response to last month’s commemorative Farewell Boleyn issue was absolutely extraordinary. Our print run increased five-fold and we had to go back to the printers to ask for another print run such was the huge demand for our May issue.
The feedback we’ve also received all season has been particularly pleasing - people like what we do, and it’s given us the confidence to keep doing it. Of course, none of this would have been possible without such a brilliant team of writers.
They truly are a wonderful bunch, and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their excellent work this campaign. I must also mention the impressive efforts of our chief photographer Nicky Hayes this season.
He really has gone the extra mile to cover the Hammers for us over the years, but it was only looking at his ‘photos of the season’ piece for this summer annual that it truly hit me how many amazing pictures he’s taken over the past 12 months.
The season may well be over but the hard work is only just beginning for us at Blowing Bubbles. We’ve got a busy summer ahead of planning for what promises to be a terrific campaign. Enjoy the summer. Here’s hoping England do well, and Dimitri Payet returns injury free!
