When The Bluetits first began, it consisted of a few friends dipping on Porthsele beach in Pembrokeshire, and sitting around a fire afterwards, putting the world to rights and having a good laugh while doing it. Badges were always a feature of The Bluetits, and as it grew, Sian and her husband Alan found that the expense of badges alone was getting a bit out of hand! So, in September 2020, The Bluetits became a social enterprise that needed to sustain itself and wanted to achieve social aims in line with The Bluetit ethos.
Recently, we received a comment on a picture of our much loved Bluetit Swimsuit. It said 'This looks like it's been made for a child.' After some back and forth, we realised that this commenter meant this negatively. What made us all giggle at HQ was that it didn't occur to us for a second that it could be a bad thing!
