Not messing around: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

It’s snow joke: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

I grew up in the country, a particular highlight of which was a snowy day. You’d wake up, turn on the local radio and anxiously wait to see if your school was one of the ones that they read out as being closed for the day. If it was, I swear it was better than Christmas.

So it was with great excitement that I went to bed last night. “Thundersnow” screamed the news. “Yellow warnings across London” cried the weather. Fantastic, I thought. There’s no way I’m going to be able to go into work tomorrow.

IMAGINE MY HORROR THIS MORNING. There is absolutely no snow on the ground in London. Not a single flake. So instead of building a snowman or throwing snowballs in the park, here I am, at my desk, writing this week’s news. Enjoy…

Have a good weekend.

Predicting nothing: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Welcome to 2017. It’s customary at this juncture to offer a series of predictions for the year ahead, but if 2016 taught us anything it’s that predictions are worthless and that the world is just a collection of random and bizarre events over which we seemingly have very little control. It’s a bit like living in Grand Theft Auto. So I will be offering no predictions, instead wishing you a prosperous year ahead.

Enjoy this week’s news, and have a good weekend.
