Edinburgh Fringe

Hi Folks, bit of a diversion here perhaps but before I deal with some Customer Service stuff I thought I should alert you all to a great opportunity at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. A local Theatre Group – Nonsense Room Productions have two shows to entertain this year. Usually performing at Rosslyn Chapel the conservation work has forced a move to the Scottish Mining Museum at Newtongrange just to the south of Edinburgh.

The two shows are Ae Fond Kiss – the story of Robert Burns by Simon Beattie (yes, he is my son!), and the second is Treasure Island based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novel.

Both shows run from August 6th to 29th with Treasure Island, a family show where you're to feel free to dress up and enjoy!

See www.nonsenseroom.co.uk for details.


Just finished a survey to check whether Customer Service remains constant over more than one branch of the same business. This involved a well known food outlet who's name implies quick service – and I can tell you the level of CS is not a constant.

At one extreme I can vouch for a branch at Livingstone where the staff and management excel to the other extreme not far from our Country's Parliament where a lunch can take forever and the customer really doesn't come first.

Conclusion? Any ethos held by senior management isn't checked at ground level where CS is based on just how the staff feel on the day.
