Penny Wilby

My name is Penny, I’m the owner of thebestof Sudbury; a local marketing business that relentlessly promotes the best the area has to offer. I also work closely with Peake Fitness, as a thebestof Sudbury business member, making sure people know about their great fitness classes and the facilities the gym has to offer.

When I’m not gallivanting around West Suffolk with my selfie stick, I’m busy chauffeuring my two daughters to and from various clubs and classes. I’m partial to brewing the odd beer and knitting socks (although not at the same time, because that would be crazy!).

Fun facts about Penny

If I was a superhero I’d be… Multi-Tasking Girl, juggling a million things at once, whilst picking up discarded socks, shoes and bits of paper from school bags.

If I could spend the day in a department at SbN Hotel I would choose…  And why? The Marketing Department on someone’s birthday. I’ve eaten the Commercial Manager Marijke’s cakes and I need to eat more.

3 words that describe me are… Short. Smiley. Enthusiastic.

Zombie apocalypse survival tactic? Taking my inspiration from Shaun of The Dead, I think I would use my Theatre Studies A Level class (1990-92) to trick those zombies into think I was a fellow undead.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool do you think you are? (1 = low, 10 = high) I’m so uncool I’m cool, so both 1 and 10.

Would you rather go to outer space or to the bottom of the ocean? Why? Outer space. This is probably where I’ll meet Dr Who (big Dr Who fan) and I’ve decided that really what he needs is a more mature assistant. And that new assistant should probably be me.  I could easily handle the sonic screw driver and my diplomacy and negotiation skills means I could probably sort out any cybermen/dalek situations.

What 3 things could you not live without? My family, my knitting needles and my iPhone.

Most overused saying… ‘Yarp’ from Hotfuzz

Penny Does… Peake Spa

Peake Spa at Stoke by Nayland Hotel

I doubt I’m alone in having a life I can only describe as being pretty full on. I’m a mum to two girls, fast approaching their teens and have to deal with all that entails. I’m also a wife and run my own business. I’m on the go 24/7 and although it’s the life I’ve […]

Penny Does Golf, Again!

Penny and SbN Golf Coach Simon

Back in February I did something I never thought I’d ever do; play golf and enjoy it. You can read about my first golfing experience here. I had so much fun, I went back for a second go, again with golf pro, Simon Dainty. This time, I have to say, the weather was kinder. I did […]

Penny Does… G&T Afternoon Tea

19 June 2017
Gin and tonic afternoon tea

The last couple of months have been unbelievably busy and so when offered the chance for a day relaxing at  Stoke by Nayland Hotel Peake spa, I jumped at the opportunity. But the day got even better. My sister and I, to celebrate our joint birthdays, enjoyed the best afternoon tea I have ever experienced. Head Chef, Alan Paton […]
