The Humes Outfitters

We are so lucky at Humes Outfitters to have a great team of friendly, passionate and talented individuals, who put their all into their work. We enjoy working together, quite often having a good time as we do, with whatsapp groups for recipe sharing, our annual Bake Off sweepstake, various socials throughout the year and of course a common love for dogs (not sure if this is obvious). We really are a family.
