Christmas is here once again, which means that as always ID Card Centre Ltd will be donating to a charity of our choice. There are, of course, so many charities across the country that need support. This year, our charity of choice is very close to home. 100 Ladles -Action for Homelessness and hunger are a local charity, offering aid to those that need it in Northampton town centre. Every Saturday evening the community run group gathers on Northampton town’s main street to serve up hot meals, drinks and other snacks and essentials to Northampton’s homeless population.

In the past, getting photographs of private material required careful consideration. Imagine a secret agent sneaking around a secure government facility or a spy snooping around a product development lab- reliant on their hi-tech gadgetry to get photos of private material. Today, people don’t need their camera’s disguised as a pen or shirt button- the infamous camera sunglasses are a thing of the past, too. Why? Today’s modern world has the ever-developing mobile phone camera, allowing quick and easy photography wherever they go.
As the presence of mobile phones, camera..

Due to continued business growth, we finally had to concede that there was no more space available at Scirocco Close. We’d gone up into the roof, we’d reconfigured offices, we were using every last nook and cranny of available storage space and short of sitting on each other’s laps – we were at capacity!
In late Spring this year, a rare find of a unit became available – with a unique mix of lots of warehouse and office space. We quickly snapped it up and after 6 years at Scirocco Close, on the 19th October, we finally took possession of our new home at 53 Tenter Road.
