    Tom,

    I follow US closely and admire what you’ve achieved. How are you surviving in the new economic world, and does your business model and admirable ethics stand up to the test of a down market?

We’re really chuffed that Mind the Gap has just installed itself in one of our commercial spaces at Lister Mills, Bradford. Mind the Gap is a professional theatre company that helps people with learning disabilities become professional actors, and helps actors with learning disabilities achieve their potential. We can’t wait to see their next performance!

Our chairman was inaugurated as chancellor at Manchester University in December 2008.

He’s in post for the next seven years. Does this mean he will at last become as academically qualified as his colleagues?

Anyone passing Ancoats over the last few days and weeks will have noticed that Chips has been a hive of activity. Our very own Will Alsop building - his first ever residential project - is nearing completion, and our customers will soon be moving in.

Chips, New Islington, Manchester

Our vision for New Islington is taking shape… although with funding hard to come-by, we’re working closely with the government to make sure that the next phases move forward as quickly as possible.

Our show apartment will be opening later in March… call our sales team to arrange a viewing - customers get priority!
