Experienced early part of this week a sunny Burton upon Trent followed by a wet Warrington thereafter a surprisingly comfortable overnight stay at The Premier Inn, Warrington.

Scenic morning drive from Warrington and through the Peak District to reach Sheffield city centre and where I noticed a lot of residential development adjacent to larger office complexes.

Tuesday evening spent at Baroosh, Staines an event held by Spelthorne Business Forum and quick rush home to see on the TV my team Chelsea beat Barcelona in a remarkable semi final.
Any ideas on how I get tickets for me and my son for the final in Munich on the 19th May 2012 are welcome.

Well done to those 16 who attended our 4th curry club lunch at Roshnis, Staines despite the foul weather conditions. Also congratulations to Geoff Chapman of Utility Warehouse for winning our free raffle of a fine bottle of red wine. Next Curry club lunch on Wednesday 27th June 2012 at Roshnis starting at 1pm.

Attended a great Surrey Chambers of Commerce event at Painshill Park, Cobham celebrating the best of British with some fantastic cakes, finger sandwiches, Pimms and good old cuppa of tea.

Check out You Tube and Ashford Pride entry in the government/ Mary Portas competition for winning cash to assist with the regenerating of the High Street (Church Road). Its an uplifting and credible entry which deserves the government's cash.

Finally we have secured agency, valuation and planning consultancy instruction in respect of the upper floors above Barclays Bank at 39 Church Road, Ashford. Further details to follow shortly.

Green shoots in the commercial property maybe occurring since last week we placed three retail premises under offer, let's hope that the respective solicitors do not frustrate the transactions with any prevarication.

We now have under offer retail warehouse at Halifax Retail Park, also have a restaurant at 302-304 High Street, Slough and shop at Tay Walk, Cumbernauld under offer & on the basis of new leases.

Experienced the Entrepreneur Seminar at Sunbury Golf Club & where we discussed making the most out of your own database and internet marketing tools etc.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening at Denbies Vineyard in Dorking as Menzies celebrate 100 years as Accountants & Auditors. The first class hospitality included a small train journey in the wine cellars, followed by wine tasting and exotic canap├ęs.  I recommend Denbies own red wine label "Redlands".

Discussed on site with the owners possible refurbishment works of offices in Wimbledon Broadway, further details of our appointment to follow shortly.

Attended for the first time the Business Biscotti network event at Park Inn Hotel, Heathrow. Certainly an eclectic selection of both business men and woman. Worth a visit being held ever 3rd Friday morning of the month at the Park Inn Hotel.
