Timothy Long


Timothy Long – born in 1965 when modern technology was still in its infancy. A child growing up with a fascination in anything with a plug or battery. Built his first radio at the age of 12 which turned into a life long hobby of shortwave radio.

Alongside this life long hobby was an era of technology growing bigger and faster.  Modems grew faster and faster, cabling got bigger and bigger and then modern technology shrunk it down to a fibre the thickness of a human hair.

Timothy has worked in all aspects of Information technology, from cabling to application management. His role within the company is to advise and ensure company assets and technology are the best of breed and fit for the purpose of its employees and customers.

Vicky Stuart


Born in 1988, I have previously worked for a vintage inspired boutique doing social media and events. I am autistic with two autistic children, and this means I have a massive passion for education on neurodivergence and others that are considered different. I have my own business The Powderpuff Room, where I am a hair, wig and makeup artist. I also have a shop selling items around these services. I like to think I offer a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent people, but of course everyone is welcome, as long as they are kind.
