Embedding continuous improvement into the ethos of public service.

The notion of continuous improvement has been applied in UK manufacturing since the early 1980’s. More recently, we have seen a similar philosophy come to life in the UK commercial services sector.

Installing E-bike charging points in public parks and open spaces

Electrically assisted E-bikes are known to make users more physically active. Many public parks a modest distance from population centres and within cities have car parking, but no facilities for securing and re-charging E-bikes. This is clearly a nonsense when we do not have road capacity for more cars, and when a number of E-bikesContinue reading “Installing E-bike charging points in public parks and open spaces”

Invest foreign aid in production of British goods for aid export
