What's happening?

We are based in the lovely county of Shropshire and although we work with clients in a wide range of surrounding counties, and virtually with businesses across the UK, we love where we live and love to shout about it.

Kirsty was a colleague […]

When I first saw a journalist sitting in a council meeting with a tiny laptop I was shocked. A computer is not the tool of a reporter, a hack, an investigator……it is, and always has been, a pen (or pencil should it be raining) and a pad/journal/jotter etc I knew times ‘were a changing’ but I didn’t want them to, […]
