    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.

  • Business Matters: Dare to change; innovate or die

    The words of Henry Ford and Albert Einstein remain resonant today. But in the world of business – and specifically when dealing with a SME’s accounting function – they’re only partially true. In a competitive economy where regulatory, communications and technological evolution is rapid and the need to be responsive is great, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’re likely to be going backwards. It’s quite literally the law of diminishing returns. To progress, businesses need to look at adding value; to dare to change, innovate or die.

    Despite SMEs being perceived as having flexibility and agility on their side, a recent report by CIPD, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, claims that many UK small to medium-sized enterprises are not keeping up with the current pace of change.

    The most effective growth driver in the next decade will almost certainly be technology. How businesses harness the digital age will determine whether they accelerate growth, or terminally decline. For SMEs, the challenge is ubiquitous: how do you align for growth?

    Ahead with the Cloud
    Cloud-based accounting, using software as a service, can help provide valuable financial information in real-time to aid decision-making and help SMEs identify areas to improve efficiency, profitability and growth.

    Growing SMEs can align for growth by getting access to key performance indicators (KPIs) that can help identify areas of the business where improvements need to be made, and those areas where new potential might lie. In companies that employ finance directors, they have been shown to add true value to their strategic leadership teams, but are too often burdened with the minutiae of tactical accounting work and onerous internal processes. Worse still, as businesses grow, the use of disparate office-based accounting or bookkeeping solutions across multiple locations, franchises or affiliates can make consolidating annual accounts a challenging process.

    Cloud-based accounting systems provide real-time information to help growing businesses become forward-looking, flexible and agile, rather than reactive. And they are much easier to implement than traditional software.

    Margins and marginal gains
    The perceived headache of change being a total aspect of business transformation is a red herring; change can be broken down into incremental, manageable phases.

    The most successful organisations are those where decision-makers are not content to stand still, but have the entrepreneurial desire to diversify, explore new opportunities and drive growth. And have the real-time business insight to support it. Don’t fear change; embrace it.

  • Business Matters: 10 Signs You Were Born to Be an Entrepreneur

    Entrepreneurs come from all different walks of life but almost all of them share similar personality traits, says inc. From confidence to curiosity, there are certain attributes that are inherently entrepreneurial–these are ten signs that you were born to be an entrepreneur.

    Risk-Taking Behaviours

    Starting your own business is a risk in and of itself. That being said, the sort of risk that entrepreneurship entails is just one in a long line of testing the waters for many entrepreneurs. The time old saying “with no risk comes no reward” is one that entrepreneurs tend to take a little bit too literally, but that’s what makes them fearless leaders and successful business owners.


    Drive and the ability to stick with a task goes a long way when it comes to building and running your own business. A lot of people don’t have what it takes to see a business through the tough times that can last for years, but at the end of the day, perseverance is what makes a great entrepreneur.


    It takes a lot of confidence to be able to break out on your own into uncharted financial waters, and it takes a lot of confidence to be persistent with something that you love, even if it is difficult. But, entrepreneurs tend to be some of the most confident people around, and they have to be in order to see their vision through to the end.


    Everybody knows how fickle the economy can be, and it takes an adaptable individual to navigate these changes with grace and persist to make their business a success. Furthermore, as somebody who will frequently encounter unchartered situations and difficult decisions, an entrepreneur is always willing and able to take challenges head on and try find the best possible outcome. You never know what to expect as a business owner, but entrepreneurs are always ready and able to adapt to the challenge.


    Curiosity is a trait that most entrepreneurs have in spades, and it can really help them innovate and drive their own success. Most businesses are built upon their owner asking questions of the market and finding problems to solve, and they persist by looking into new strategies and solutions to keep them on the cutting edge.


    There is quite a bit of work that goes into running your own business; in fact, there is something to do almost all of the time. An entrepreneur will have no problem with this, as they are always looking to have their hands on what might be the next big thing!

    A Focus On The Big Picture

    Being able to juggle tasks and wear a million different hats makes a successful entrepreneur, especially at the crucial beginning points in the life of a business. A good entrepreneur can strategise and utilise all parts of a situation with ease.

    A Rebellious Streak

    It takes a lot of guts to break out on your own, away from the security of working for someone else. This kind of rebellion definitely started early on in life, and you might notice a pattern in your past that follows breaking the mold.

    A Desire to Build Things

    This doesn’t necessarily mean physically building things, but entrepreneurs really love the process of putting things together to create a whole to show. New challenges excite the entrepreneur and being able to build a successful business or product from the ground up is a source of pride for most.


    Entrepreneurs love to show off their competitive side through their successes, and won’t give up until they’re on top. Just like the world’s most successful athletes, entrepreneurs have an undying drive to be the best of the best, and are always finding ways to outdo their competitors.

    Every entrepreneur is different, but the most successful ones all share these ten personality traits. If this list sounds like you, then you may be cut from the entrepreneurial stone and maybe someday, you’ll be the founder of the next major company!
