This newsletter marks our return to 'regular' publishing after a brief year-end break and last week's Year in Review edition.
It's clear that more and more people are heading back to work after their summer or winter break and that we're getting down to business.
Our reflection on last year was a reminder of just how much can happen in 12 months, so we're braced for even more developments in the year ahead.
As usual, if you have any news to share with us or any industry murmurs you would like verified, please feel free to get in touch.

"As far as the travel time is concerned, first 1/2 hour and the last 1/2 hour is normally a give back to the company. Figure that you are not out any fuel, wear and tear ,insurance on your personal vehicle is like money in your pocket tax free. If you do not use your personal vehicle to drive to work most insurance companies will give you a lower insurance rate.".
