Delta Security helps to secure south London restaurant and pub

Delta Security, the CCTV and access control specialist, is helping to protect people, property and patrons at the Camberwell Arms in London, with the installation of a new access control system.

The Paxton system provides management with remote centralised administration through user-friendly software, and has the capacity to control multiple doors and users. Event reports can be generated at the touch of a button and advanced features include site graphics and IP camera integration.

Amante Ibiza | lunching like a lady

Amante Ibiza, close to Santa Eulalia, is one of the dining diamonds of the White Isle. In my previous capacity of restaurant reviewer for Ibiza Spotlight magazine some years ago, I already knew Amante was top class. I’d written articles about it myself.

But not having visited for a few years, I was curious to see whether this legendary Ibiza restaurant had held on to its uniquely bewitching combination of top-class service, taste-bud dazzling cuisine and breathtaking scenery. I was just waiting for the right occasion to present itself.

As thousands of young people across the country flock to collect their A level results this week, a growing number will be looking to learn and earn through an apprenticeship scheme, an increasingly popular alternative to university.

Greene King, the UK’s leading pub retailer and brewer, is seeing this first-hand. In 2016, the business pledged to offer 10,000 apprenticeships over three years, a pledge it remains on track to fulfil. Since then, the number of apprenticeship applications has risen by an impressive 141%. This year alone the business has already recruited 43% more 16-18-year olds compared to this time last year – demonstrating that apprenticeships in the hospitality industry remain an increasingly attractive option for school leavers.

Loyalty Pro

Loyalty Pro, providers of the Slatepoint loyalty tablet system, have enhanced their product by adding the ability to take photos as part of the card registration process at the counter.  The passport style picture of the card holder is then displayed whenever the card is swiped, allowing the individuals identity to be verified.

Rob Meakin, Technical Director of Loyalty Pro commented- “some of our clients requested this facility to allow our cards to be used for access control and age checking. The picture is held securely on our central database and downloaded on demand, much cheaper and much simpler to administer in comparison to adding pictures onto the cards themselves, and it works with key fobs too”.  For more information visit
