    South College Street Consultation

    The Aberdeen City Council has a consultation open until the 19th January 2021 on proposed changes to South College Street.

    Absolutely enormous pants

    Do you remember that scene in Bridget Jones’s Diary where RenĂ©e Zelleweger and Hugh Grant hook up and Grant discovers the “absolutely enormous pants”?

    Sustainability

    I’ve been thinking a lot about sustainability recently both through my work at Award Force and also on a more personal level. It has become fashionable for corporations to talk about sustainability and I think, when done sincerely, it represents the best of humanity.
