By Kirsty   Every year, on the 25th January, or there abouts, Scots around the world celebrate Robert Burns (aka Rabbie Burns) life and works and pay tribute to the Scottish culture.   I say this as if I have hosted, or at least attended, many a Burns Night and this could not be further…

By Paul   I’ve been doing some volunteering work, local to where I live. I won’t say what it is, as that wouldn’t be fair.   However, there was a huge debate a little while ago within this organisation about how we communicate to the wider public about what we are trying to do.  …

By Adrienne Those of you who already know us here at Hanicke Robins Sanderson will know that we have strong links with the waste management and recycling sector. Now, there’s a bit of an urban myth that goes something like this: once you get involved in recycling, you’re in it for life’. Which certainly seems to be…

By Paul As a kid, I remember Hallowe’en involving a washing up bowl filled with water, half a dozen apples and a turnip.   Sometimes it also involved your mum covering you in a bin bag, streaks of toilet roll, and lipstick smeared down your face and then you would be sent into the world…

By Adrienne.   Paul’s 90s blog got me thinking. Not about the 90s, but about the 80s.   Yes, Paul, the 90s was the decade of the internet and the mobile. But the 80s was when it all started to change. In the 80s we used typewriters and printed things off in triplicate. As journalists,…

By Adrienne   My heart says I’ll never be too old. My head says it may happen one day – but not yet.   Let me add some context before you read any further. I’m 48 and I’m loving this decade. I’ve got shed loads of experience that people value. There’s still lots to learn…

By Paul.   The other week I read an article that didn’t surprise me.   Print advertising in newspapers was down 30% over the past six months, but ad revenues are down on newspaper websites too. (More here)   On the one hand, people are buying less newspapers – I can’t remember the last time…

By Paul.   Did you watch This is England ’90? I did.   I’ve also been to see Ride in concert twice this year, and I saw Slowdive last year – both bands I loved in the early-1990s until Britpop came along and put an end to shoegazing.   Is is me or are people…

By Paul. Or young people think business differently.   Hipsters with long beards (the men at least), funky clothes and a flat white have become part of the creative scene in many UK cities.   It probably started in London, but there are loads of places around the UK where you can see this tribe…

By Paul   I remember as a kid going fishing once.   Another kid invited me, about the same age, one of those holiday friendships where you can’t wait to go and play with them while you are on holiday for two weeks, and then you can’t remember their name two weeks later when you…
