Aurora is 10 years old…who would have thought it?! Well us actually…there was never any doubt in our minds that we would reach this important milestone.
We were lucky enough to be asked to join Aurora in the very ‘early days’ when it was just Neil, Claire and us in a ‘modest’ shared office space in Camden Town (read small and pokey with little to no natural light, an occasional dead pigeon on our dirty skylight and a less than immaculate kitchen). They were frantic, fun days building the business and the ethos of the company. It was clear early on that this was a different way of doing business, which we loved, and Aurora has always felt very personal to us both. We were invested and believed in Aurora from the very beginning. People often remark that the company has a ‘family’ feeling, and we can attest to this because Neil and Claire have created a unique place to work.
During the time we have been at Aurora, we have both taken out mortgages, got married (not to each other), had a daughter (Sarah) and now there’s a bump to be (Aaron)… Neil and Claire were at both our weddings and we think this shows how far we and the business have come. We are well and truly ‘grown up’ now….(kind of) and even have natural light, with more windows than we know what to do with.
We have had our ups and downs but Aurora has been, and indeed remains, a big part of our lives. We are proud to have been part of this successful, very funny, occasionally hairy, but never dull Aurora ride and long may it continue.
Thanks Neil and Claire for everything and Happy Birthday Aurora.
