We’re looking forward to attending the annual Opportunities Fair – the Opps Fair 2015 – at Portsmouth Guildhall again in October.
The extravaganza is held for pupils aged 10 to 13 - and their families - to showcase the exciting opportunities and wide range careers on offer in the city when they leave school.
We had a great time last year and we are pleased to be able to join other like-minded businesses at the event this year on Saturday October 10 from 10am to 3pm.
We recently saw the true face of Islam when we were invited to the Jami Mosque in Portsmouth.
We were among the guests along with the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Frank Jonas and headteachers in the city.
Our managing director Bill McAndrew and director Ian Lee were among the group invited to join in the visit.
Members of the mosque wanted to share the Ramadan ceremony of Iftar Mahfil which breaks the daily fast.
They offered the invitation to show that the terror attacks in Tunisia were not what Islam stands for.
We had a great night on our annual trip to Goodwood last night for its final 'Three Friday Nights' extravaganza of the summer.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner in the Horsewalk restaurant and also enjoyed a flutter on the six races, with mixed results...
It was a glorious summer evening which came to a finale with a DJ set by actor and musician Idris Elba.
It’s a racing certainty that we’re going to have a great weekend : we’re off to Goodwood.

A £1m deal is set to be struck for the Spinnaker Tower to be sponsored by airline giant Emirates.
The Dubai-based company and the city council are expected to finalise the deal for the next five years.
According to the Portsmouth News, the arrangement will mean the landmark being repainted in Emirates colours - perhaps red is not the best colour in a 'blue' city - although it's not clear whether the tower will be renamed or not.
New figures out show that inflation has dropped so far, we’re now into ‘deflation’ or negative inflation.
According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), inflation fell to -0.1% in April; the first time it has been so low since 1960 – basically meaning prices have fallen compared with this time last year.
One way of looking at it is to compare a shopping trolley of goods. If it cost £100 last April, it will now only cost £99.90.
Falls in air and sea fares, partly fuelled by oil price drops, as well as supermarket ‘store wars’ have helped drive prices down.
Excitement is growing ahead of the big America’s Cup races off Portsmouth in the summer.
