March 2011:
 
  • After a pause for planning content and gathering material, and keeping an eye on news about public services and what is happening to them, this website is in business.  It is here  to help and inspire public servants and those leaving public service at a time when this is most needed.  The site has been reorganised and the lead blog concerns a school office manager who helped raise £26,600 for the school swimming pool, an example of some of the exceptional people in public service who aren't celebrated consistently in one place, as this site aims to do.
