Back in the day when I was employed, I used to be entitled to 20 days holiday a year. Like most companies, we had a “Use them or lose them” policy but when it came to asking for holiday, it was always a problem.
It has been a year of ups and downs. January and February started really well for the business and we had some substantial contract gains which, following on from a strong end to 2016, put us in an excellent position for the rest of 2017.
You may well have heard the term and watched news reports of instances of Modern Slavery right across the UK and the rest of the World but what does it mean for us and what can we all do to ensure it doesn’t go on in our business or our supply chain.
Congratulations to Dawn Hagan (and boyfriend Joe) as they became a first time Mam and Dad to Vincent Edward Duffy on Monday the 17th July. Tina (Dawn’s Mam) now becomes Nana T and was so thrilled with the arrival of Vinnie, Nana T brought him in to the office for some cuddles! Although Dawn has worked with us for three years, Nana T has worked with us for ten!
We look forward to seeing a lot more of Vinnie.
The recent Referendum and decision for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union has created an amount of uncertainty both politically and throughout business.
Well done and thank you to those who wore their teams Football Shirt to Work last Friday. We’ve donated £100 towards the fight against cancer.
Your donation will help us to beat bowel cancer sooner
Dear Paul ,
Thank you so much for your donation of £100.00.
Your gift will help to fund world-class research into bowel cancer.
Thanks to our scientists, doctors and nurses, more people are surviving cancer now than ever before. But we can’t stop there. We’ll keep working to diagnose cancer earlier, make treatments kinder and more effective and get closer to beating cancer.
Without you, our pioneering work just wouldn’t be possible – so thank you again from us all.

Sometimes we lose accounts. Thank goodness more often than not there’s nothing we could have done to stop it and you just have to thank them for their business and hope that one day you get the opportunity to work with them again.
There is little doubt that the Governments announcement of the new Living Wage a few months back is great news for those working for or in the region of the current minimum wage.
