'How I've brought celebrations to people's homes during lockdown,' - 'Lockdown Conversations' podcast
On today’s ‘Lockdown Conversations’ podcast, Sarah McKeown – founder of ‘Just JimJams Sleepovers’ – chats to us about how her ‘hobby business’ has helped people to keep celebrating in lockdown.
The Sheffield mum-of-two started the year with a side business – that quickly became a full-time, booming business in lockdown, as families hired her to come and set up her themed sleepover tents in their homes and gardens.
Our podcast will be running every day throughout lockdown, keeping you company, keeping you connected, and sharing your lockdown experiences.
Host Nik Farah will be inviting a different local voice to take a seat on the virtual couch every day – talking about Covid-19’s impact on your jobs, mental health, relationships, and life-changing events.
So far, we’ve chatted to South Yorkshire actor Lee Semley about keeping theatre alive, local journalist Danielle Andrews about giving alcohol the heave-ho, Ruth Garbutt – mum of Captain Tobias Weller – about their incredible lockdown challenge, Jane Alflat about her untraditional 2020 wedding, new mum Ellen Beardmore about lockdown maternity leave, Jonathan Lee about writing a book in six weeks, Charlotte Williams who received a Barnsley Spirit award recently for ‘outstanding contribution to her community during the pandemic,’ Katy Middleton about juggling lockdown house renovations with entertaining two young toddlers, and Sophie Mei about finding love in lockdown!
Listen to our full chat with Sarah above – and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for day 11.
