Your business, new horizons in 2018
The biggest threat to any business is inertia, if you’re not moving forward then you’re at risk of slipping back and in today’s competitive markets that just isn’t an option.

Your library is about so much more than books
Judging from the amount of community activity going in Hungerford Library, the council are going to have a hard time justifying its closure in their next round of swingeing cuts.
