Taking the community to heart

Scarborough isnt at the end of the universe, but its pretty close, jokes Pindar group marketing director David Jesson. But his quip is a respectful one: over the past 130-odd years, as one of the seaside towns major employers, Pindar has done more than...

Pastures new yield improved prospects

While many firms located on the site of the Olympic Park resented their need to relocate to make way for facilities for the 2012 games, Park Communications seized it as an opportunity. The firms old factory at Lea Mill, next to the A12, was pushing its limits and didnt support the firms plans.
