Cottage Fields humble beginnings began in 2012 with nothing but a small team with a united vision and determination to work hard and make a difference. Our first 'office' was a brick built outbuilding in Cheshunt. When we took it over, unfortunately for us its sole purpose was storage (previously a recording studio), it had a stench of damp and must meaning we had to wear protective masks! It was mouldy, leaking, and had no heating or running water. After emptying the clutter and waste, all the sound proofing stripped and walls bleached to remove all the mildue (plus a few coats of mould proof paint), we patched it up the best we could and attempted to make it an office to be proud of. Due to having tight purse strings and being self funded, we had to make do with a couple of plug in heaters, a dehumidifier and walm clothes. We pulled together some second hand furniture (we even borrowed a chair from Cihans nephew on one occassion), some basic supplies, and a very poor internet connection, and began working towards the dream. Of course sometimes it was a struggle (think snow, badly fitted windows and no heating) but we always had eachother to lean on in our hardest moments, and our motivation and vision of what Cottage Fields would eventually become to keep up going. This is was the start of Cottage Fields and we will always remember our humble beginnings as a continued motivation to work hard. It will remain with all of us when we started with nothing but a dream and the passion and the perserverance to achieve it through hardship, with hard work, belief and a 'I can' attitude.
