Meet our team - Ashley, Production Assistant

Ashley is part of our Production crew. As a Production Assistant he's responsible for decorating your garms from embroidery to DTG printing and everything in between.

What drew you to G&G?

I left college and pretty much went straight into work so I've had my fair share of jobs, but when moving to this area I had never seen or experienced anything like Goose & Gander. It seemed like a fresh new challenge for me and the managers came across very understanding and honest.

Where do you see G&G in 3 years?

I see a relocation to a bigger HQ and lots more keen staff.

What's your favourite part about working for G&G?

In all honesty the best part of G&G is the staff and the managers. Everyone is so understanding and helpful - keeping staff is a priority for them which in my opinion, is the best kind of business.

Describe G&G in 3 words?

Friendly, supportive and determined.

What has been your most interesting job?

Prior to working at G&G I worked as a host/kitchen assistant for a nursing home. I worked for said nursing home for 2 years, there are lots of stories to be told from that place!

What are your 3 favourite garms from G&G?

Ltd Embroidery on a sweat, classic! Patchwork DTG on a tee and Ltd patch on a full zip fleece a very cosy wear.

Eddie the Tortoise

Do you have any pets?

I have a 3 year old horsefield Tortoise named Edward but mainly goes by Eddie.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a little village in the north east of Somerset called Midsomer Norton (Middle of nowhere more like). It's about 50 minutes from Bristol. I lived in that area for 23 years until I made the big leap to Yate where I reside now.

What TV series are you currently watching?

I'm currently forcing my boyfriend into watching Rupaul's Drag Race: All Stars. He doesn't fully understand everything that is going on but always says the dresses are pretty.
