RIP Internet Explorer

After more than 25 years in use, Microsoft removed support for Internet Explorer in favour of Microsoft Edge. While some historic versions can still be used for the moment, this is definitely the end of an era.

Our office had a makeover for Halloween. There were spiders, cobwebs and black cats everywhere - and a costume competition. Here's some of our Marketing team.

xmas 2022


This Christmas saw us watching the World Cup - We were so hopeful! Here are this year's Christmas trees - including a few of the England team.

Every winter, we like to finish the year with a meal for our staff. This year we went to The Rooftop Cafe at Kala Sangam for food, drinks and bad jokes from Christmas crackers.

We’re looking forward to a great year ahead – including our 20th anniversary! We already have fantastic events lined up in 2023 – Including the Bett Show. Keep an eye on our blog and social media accounts to hear what we get up to.

We hope you have a fantastic 2023.
