Despite the economy’s gloomy forecast, Basepoint Ipswich business centre is expanding due to reaching 100% occupancy in its offices. The centre will be converting 5,600 sq ft of space on the top floor, creating ten new offices: five individual offices ideal for start up businesses and five larger offices which will provide existing licensees with the option to expand. Three of Basepoint’s existing licensees have already signed up to move into the larger offices and two have been reserved by new companies. The new office units will be ready from 2nd April 2012, along with three workshops that are still available at the centre.
Showing news for February 2012.

On Wednesday 28th March, Basepoint Swindon is joining forces with licensee, Swindon Trauma Group, by hosting a raffle to raise money to support the group’s work and also to help secure funding from The Community Foundation for Wiltshire and Swindon. Swindon Trauma Group was established in 2006 to provide support to military veterans and sufferers of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Gulf War Syndrome. Within that remit, the voluntary group aims to raise awareness of the conditions amongst medical professionals to help give better support to those who are suffering with them.
Smiling, correct breathing, and surrounding yourself with happy, upbeat people are just a few of the ways to handle stress according to Joao Arranhado, of Sports 13, who spoke at the Newhaven Enterprise Centre’s latest Networking Hub.
