Interim managers: do you need one? PDF Print E-mail

Growing Business investigates how an outsider can rescue a private business, sometimes from itself.

No one knew the Green Knight when he arrived at the court of King Arthur in the middle of a feast. The courtiers thought they were on a roll, but he was there to tell them they had problems they hadn’t seen.

You probably know the story. The Green Knight made the court do a lot of things they couldn’t see the point of, especially Sir Gawain.

The bell spectacular lasted for around 40 minutes, with people from across the Teme Valley joining in the 6.30am bell-ringing session, before they eagerly tucked in to a traditional cooked breakfast of egg, bacon, liver and local black pudding. Church member and local resident Celia Adams said: “The ringing of the bells on Ascension Day follows a tradition that has been practiced in churches and cathedrals throughout the country for many years.” adding, “The bells were so loud that they could be heard for up to a mile away and attracted much local interest, and the hearty breakfast went down a treat with everyone after all the hard work.
