Small businesses are the lifeblood of the UK economy, with 60% of workers in the UK employed by a SME (small to medium sized enterprise). Many of these businesses exist to serve a particular area in the UK. They could be anything from an independent cafe in a town centre to a law firm that works with clients in the same city.
A woman from Bristol has received a letter sent to her nearly 25 years ago. Sally Waters, who still lives in the same house in St Andrew's, said the letter was dated 27 August 1991 and contained a receipt for a deposit from the Cliffden Hotel in Teignmouth. The sealed envelope came in a plastic bag with a sticker which said "we're sorry this item has been delayed in the post". Royal Mail was unable to say for certain why the letter arrived so late. A spokesman said it had probably been put back into the postal system by someone, rather than being "lost in the post". Ms Waters said she was not upset at the late delivery as it did not stop her going on the holiday she was planning for, in 1992. She wondered if the letter "fell behind a shelf and got mislaid" and said she was "quite amused" by the matter. "Somebody said I ought to frame it," she added.

My April edition of Independent Practitioner Today landed on my doormat yesterday and it looks superb. So thank you for all your help in getting this done. I know that Matthew put in a lot of work on this, but the result was worth it. We have had feedback from some very senior people in the private healthcare industry and they were impressed.
