    This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

    If anyone has a problem with the content of this site and wishes for any content to be remove please contact me.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    START NOW

  • INGs commitment to 'Lets Talk Water'
    The vibe at Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) is very unique!

  • Farewell OPRA and hello system change pain
    The UK's Operational Risk Appraisal OPRA permitting scheme is a world leading scheme, it's a stand out model, it does it all and does it well. So, the Environment Agency's decision to replace it with an outdated model with little consultation should be a concern.

  • Imbuing your brand with purpose two practical principles

  • How to avoid becoming an example of purpose-wash

  • The Sustainable Development Goals a call to action for all
    The many goals and even more targets (17 goals and 169 targets, to be precise) making up the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are so wide and so far reaching, that engagement from governments alone is not enough to achieve them. Thankfully, there is a general acknowledgement "out there" that participation is also required from private businesses, local authorities and civil society to build a strong sense of ownership by all. This is our world, our home and such a good planet is hard to come by, so let's do this!

  • Three ways to tackle climate change in FMCG supply chains
    A year ago, political leaders, diplomats and scientists sealed the Paris Climate Agreement, a landmark in environmental history.

However, there are now concerns that the US might pull out of the settlement.
