17 Degrees is a Forth Valley lifestyle magazine that is based out of Falkirk Business Hub, and has been since September of last year. They provide our area with a progressive, creative and insightful publication. Sophie, the Editor in Chief says, “We have met so many incredible business professionals working throughout the Forth Valley that are based in FBH over the past six months.” Sophie has also been getting to know the team at Life Fit Wellness. After a conversation with the reception team about her ongoing sciatica, she scheduled a physiotherapy session with Stewart Kerr, one of the Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Team. Following a thorough assessment, a treatment plan was agreed which involved a tailored exercise program, advice on daily management and some ‘hands-on’ treatment which provided some welcome pain-relief.
Following this session she received her personalised exercise program by email which included photos, videos and written description of the exercises. Part of the management program discussed was to facilitate a smooth transition to Pilates. A 1-1 Intro to Pilates was arranged with Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor, Carolyn Kent. This set Sophie up nicely with confidence to transition into a Pilates Class. This week she will be attending a Pilates Circuit Class at Life Fit Wellness, which utilises specialised large equipment such as the ‘Reformer’. Having both services in the same place was ideal and made the transition from physiotherapy to exercise achievable.
Furthermore, the benefit of having a dual trained Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor meant that her sciatica was accommodated, and therefore the exercise was not only achievable, but enjoyable and beneficial. She has since followed up for a review physiotherapy session with Stewart and the improvements were clear to see. 17 Degrees Magazine will be publishing a feature on the centre in the next issue so stay tuned to hear about Sophie’s progress and all that is offered at the integrated healthcare and exercise centre. You can pick up a complimentary copy of the publication at FBH reception.
This year is already off to a quick start, it’s hard to believe that we are half way through February! There are some exciting things happening in the coming weeks so make sure you are following Falkirk Business Hub on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for daily updates.

As many of you may know Finnegans opened this week in the Hub and the buzz has been felt throughout the whole building and throughout Falkirk.
Chef and Finnegans owner, Giles Nicholl has a simple approach to creating a great place to eat.
“Eating out shouldn’t have chains attached”
You may recognise Giles as a familiar face in Falkirk town centre where he’s well known to local diners and businesses. He re-opened the big red doors that previously was Findlays on Monday September 3rd with a new identity; Finnegans. Giles is bringing his Irish roots and experience in establishments such as Findlays, The Champany Inn and Unicorn Inn to satisfy the taste buds of the people of Falkirk. This independent eatery will only serve quality produce that is locally sourced from suppliers such as Oliphant Bakers, Falleninch Farm, Browns Butchers and The Cake Lady Falkirk.
Finnegans offers quality, affordable breakfasts, sandwiches, paninis, lunches and great tasting coffee supplied by Puro. Giles aim is to offer the best of Irish and Scottish cuisines as well as some international influences.
“Our food is prepared fresh to order bringing to life great ingredients in a quality, home cooking style” say Giles whose Irish roots have taught him to create food that is unpretentious to they eye and memorable to taste.
Finnegans is open Monday to Friday, 8am to 4.30 pm and Saturday 9 am to 4.30pm. Closed Sundays. Finnegans will also cater to private parties.
Whether you choose to enjoy the comfortable ambience of Finnegans or food to go, the team will make you feel very welcome.
“I am lucky enough to work at the Hub and have been excitedly waiting on this place opening. Went for coffee and a cake this morning and a takeaway lunch thereafter and everything was fantastic. Lovely coffee, amazing empire biscuit and a filled roll that well and truly packed with filling. The place looks great and Giles and all his team are such a happy, friendly bunch. Lovely to see the place absolutely buzzing on its opening day. I’m sure every day will be much the same going forward.”
“Just had a wonderful breakfast at Finnegans today. Delighted that Falkirk has once again got a top-notch place for diners to enjoy. Huge thanks to Chef Giles and staff for a warm welcome. We will certainly be back here.”
“Absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t recommend these guys enough. The service is second to none and the food is excellent. Will definitely be back”

LITTLE MIX – BIG CAUSE
On the 27th of July, we hosted the two lucky ladies who won our once in a lifetime fundraiser for Breast Cancer Now.
Megan Erskine (18) and Emily Davidson (18). Both winners were delighted to have been selected as the winners of our exclusive prize, as well as supporting the great cause of Breast Cancer Now.
Donations were invited through a dedicated Justgiving page giving donators the opportunity to win a VIP prize package which included tickets to see Little Mix at The Falkirk Stadium. The package also included a fabulous makeover from our very own Stacey Leigh Spalding and limousine chauffeur to the concert, courtesy of Ultimate Private Hire.
There was a buzz in the air when the girls arrived with a friend each, there were lots of giggling and anticipation for the night ahead. Stacey and the team worked their magic on the girls and made them all look stunning (I am sure you will all agree).
The concert was a roaring success with Little Mix putting on a great show, showcasing all their greatest hits as well as some new ones. We hope the girls had a fantastic night and we loved seeing them enjoying themselves. The pop superstars performed all of their biggest hits including “Touch”, “Shout Out to My Ex” and “Black Magic” as a part of their Summer Hits Tour 2018
Janice Archer from Stacey Leigh Spalding make-up said, “The girls had an amazing day from start to finish, and were delighted to look and feel glamorous for the Little Mix event. The charity was close to the winners hearts, and it was very special for everyone within SLS (Stacey Leigh Spalding) studio to be a part of the collaboration with the Falkirk Business Hub.
Breast Cancer Now Scotland is the leading breast cancer charity in Scotland. The charity is dedicated to stopping women dying from breast cancer and believes that, if we all act now by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
To help the achieve this goal, Breast Cancer Now Scotland fund cutting-edge research into the disease in Scotland. They collaborate with the brightest researchers and leading organisations from around the world.
Mandie Stevenson’s story is also another important reason for us to support this charity.
Mandie, who is from Falkirk, was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in 2015 and was told she had five years to live. She finished chemotherapy two years ago and is continuing to make positive progress in her recovery.
Falkirk Business Hub believe in giving back to those in need and are always happy to welcome charities. We continue to support Breast Cancer Now Scotland. Mandie Stevenson is a true inspiration and we are proud to support such an invaluable cause.
