It is 3 months since we have been working a shorter week by concentrating 5 days of work into 4.The pros and cons have been much debated in the office but the anonymous decision is to continue for another 3 months, maybe for a full year.

The system does not work for staff who are commuting, some of us have not been able, or willing, to free Fridays of work, and long days are very tiring.

I m standing in the former home of Jonathan Fyffe, surrounded by old fireplaces and their grates, brass doorknobs, mirrors, doors and fancy tiles. I went down Belfast s York Road to investigate Jennymount Street. Situated just past Thompsons feed factory and before the mill building, I found the proud home of Architectural Salvage, which started out from one small house on the street Jon bought for £200 in 1979. He explained from this part of York Road towards the city centre in the late 70 s and early 80 s was becoming totally derelict. Instead…
