Good News Stories This week

What a week it's been - the V&A Museum re-opened, funding was announced for major new parks in England, BP announced it will increase investment in renewables and we've enjoyed exceptional weather.  

We've also seen stronger than ever results in ecommerce - great news given that retail stores have now opened and are settling into their 'new normal'.  It will be interesting to see how bricks & mortar can co-exist with the digital stampede happening right now.
