Baby Joy for Gemma and Brett

Black Country Saddles Client Executive, Gemma Cullen and her partner Brett Gollick are celebrating after the birth of their baby boy Caleb.

Their first baby, Caleb arrived a few weeks early on May 26 but still weighed a healthy 6Ib 3oz and both mother and baby are doing well.

Said Gemma: “We are thrilled about the arrival of our beautiful baby boy, he is gorgeous and has light brown hair.”

Gemma is the daughter of Black Country Saddles partner, Rob Cullen and his wife Carol who are overjoyed with the newest addition to the family.

“We are over the moon and so excited to be grandparents,” beamed Rob.

Little Caleb has already visited Black Country Saddles HQ and maybe it won’t be too long before he’s an active team member too!

Black Country Saddles is well known for its family connections with partner John Hartley and his wife Wendy’s daughters Cassie and Rachael both working for the business as a Client Executive and Bridle Maker.

Carol’s sister, Judy is employed as book-keeper while John’s sister’s son, Simon Newitt is a Cutter and was overjoyed four months ago with the birth of son Joshua.

Adding to the family tree, Tom Langford, also a Saddler, is the son of Wendy’s brother and also has a young toddler, Hollis, now 15 months.Gemma and Caleb
