Good News Stories This week...

The Suez Canal was blocked for 5 days last week as the 200,000-tonne ship, Ever Given, ran aground blocking the vital trade route between Asia and Europe.  Many thought it would take weeks to sort out.

So what eventually freed the ship?

13 tug boats and a specialist team.  

We feel it's a reminder to never underestimate the value of being small and the advantages of being able to work together seamlessly as a team.  

Small can be mighty, and often is.  

As for other news, see below for the stories to hit headlines over the past 7 days.
