JESSOPS BACK IN A FLASH AS PETER JONES CBE OPENS DOORS AT SIX STORES THIS THURSDAY
28 March 2013 – Jessops, the iconic UK photography retailer, will re-open its doors this Thursday after a vote of confidence from Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Peter Jones CBE.

Mybunjee is an ingenious device that was presented on Dragons' Den by Emma Jones and Mark Ferguson. It's a gadget that protects mobile phones from accidental damage or theft. As with so many great products the Mybunjee is a simple idea, it slips over and secures your mobile phone and is secured with a coiled bunjee cord. The cord clips on to your handbag, trousers or belt and stops the phone hitting the ground when dropped and it also helps prevent theft.
Paul Turner came on Dragons' Den to present his range of award winning sausages and to seek investment and guidance to help him launch the range nationally. Paul is a traditional family butcher, as was his father and grandfather so he knows all about making a great quality sausage. His products have won numerous national awards but he has not been able to get the level of distribution that would allow a wide audience to sample his range.
