At both work and play, we spend an average of 9 hours a day looking at a screen of some sort. You may initially think no, not me and truly believe you spend far less time looking at a screen but in reality you could well be spending far more time than you...

I was alarmed this week to learn that in the last 2 years, 40 people have been killed or injured by Carbon Monoxide (CO) whilst on holiday. Particularly holidays involving staying in a tent, caravan, holiday cottage or boat, which are all my kind of holiday but it has never occurred to me that CO is a threat. With this in mind, I want to help Project SHOUT, the UK’s leading Carbon Monoxide (CO) awareness campaign, to reach and encourage more families to take a CO alarm with them on holiday.

A story of a self taught ceramicist & jeweler

One and Eight run by mum of 3 Susie is a designer, creator and owner of One & Eight, she’s a self taught ceramicist & jeweler, who enjoys learning through experimentation. What influenced you to start this business? For a number of years I worked in London as a buyer and product developer at a large department store.

I loved the simplicity and crisp whiteness of...

GDPR: Big Changes for Small Businesses? 

GDPR: Big Changes for Small Businesses?  There’s a lot of scaremongering around GDPR. It seems that the moment you mention GDPR in the next breath 20 million Euro fines are mentioned.

There has been so much conflicting information out there so I hope this article goes some way to helping you clear a way through it all. I must add at this point that we are not lawyers, but we...
