The Tale of 2016

by

And so another year comes to pass. Another collection of up’s and down’s, victories and defeats. 2016 certainly had plenty of both for those of us here at Avango towers (that’s a mythical building by the way, just in case you weren’t sure). The early part of each year is typically…(Read More)

Speaking for myself (Stuart) my former career was spent working in offices, mostly for newspapers and magazines. It paid the bills for a while, but I knew it wasn’t ever going to make me…(Read More)

The Tale of No Escape

Or as it is also known, ‘The Tale of How Many People Does it Take to Unlock a Gate’ (For the sake of people’s dignity, we have masked any identifiable marks in the images that accompany this story). In late 2013 I was on my way to Long Eaton, not far from Nottingham. A…(Read More)
