Share with us the good, the bad and the downright ugly!
Good morning. There's been plenty of news over the last few days; we've got many of the main stories below and a few really nice stories in the pipeline – they'll be on the site over the next few days. We do try and balance it out with the good but it's not easy to strike that balance. It's harder to get good news, believe it or not, so it's nice to get that helping hand. What we do like is the engagement on various platforms, from this newsletter to social media messages and emails. Sometimes there is plenty to get through but we do try and respond to everyone, unless of course it is clearly a drunken 2am message. As much as we enjoy them, they're probably best left alone. The point being, you have news! Don't be shy in sharing.
If you see it, let us know – a lot of the news we report on comes from you guys. So, whether it's bad news or good news, keep them coming, we'll ask the questions.
As always, on with the news...it's a mixed bag :/
