So much happens on a daily basis here at HIM that it’s hard to keep up with everything. So we thought we’d dedicate a few column inches to the most relevant stuff.

Watch this space for a selection of our most scrumptious stories and a multitude of our most meaningful material. Something like that anyway. As always, feel free to post your comments and get involved in the dialogue. We don’t really want to talk to ourselves, that would be madness.

If it’s newsy and worthy, you’ll find it here.
