A recent research report by the Business Growth Fund (BGF) has revealed that business leaders in the North of England would like to see more investment in physical infrastructure rather than high speed broad band.

Furthermore the report found that over twice as many business leaders, 69 per cent, claimed that improved roads, rail and airport expansion would provide more benefits to UK businesses than investing in high speed broadband.

As we previously reported, the employees of Briggs and Forrester joined in with some Halloween fundraising last week. From ghoulish masks, to devilishly good cakes, to an appearance by the black Power Ranger, staff were raising money for Zac Forskitt, a young man from Northampton diagnosed with two unrelated cancers. A donation of £400 will be going to Zac and his family to provide help and support.  

We had a great day and it felt even better to be raising money for such a worthy cause.

It was a little bit spooky at B&F as our teams made a big effort for Halloween.

More importantly they dressed up and made cakes to raise funds for local charities.

Scarily good fun for a good cause.
