The only thing worth going to Watford for is WB Studio Tour.

Arrrrgh!

Reached my quota of 15 messages per day.

First 15 forum members on the No1 tour list contacted.

I will contact the other forum members tomorrow via PM.

Until then, this is the message I will be PM-ing again.

Quote:
Hi all.

The date and time of the tour is 4pm on Thursday the 24th of August.

The tour will include a general overview of No1 and will include a visit to the rooftop restaurant space. The tour will take about an hour.

Can you please let me know by Tuesday night if you will be able to attend the tour, as I have to give definite numbers to Allied London.

Thanks.

John.

Just heard on Key 103 that the council are collecting funds and ideas for a memorial for the attack on the 22nd May. Leese is being 'bombarded' with ideas apparently!

Does it actually use that word on Key 103?

Just another quick reminder.

Thank you to those of you who have confirmed you can attend the tour.

And thank you to those of you for letting me know you can't attend the tour for various reasons. I'm sincerely sorry about that.

For those of you who still haven't replied to my PM asking you to confirm you can attend the tour, *I need to know by Wednesday night at the latest*. That is the cut off point. I need to get final numbers to Allied London ASAP.

On Thursday Morning I will post the list of People, usernames only, who have confirmed they can attend the tour.Please check you are on that list. I will forward that list along with full names to Allied London.

Once I get additional information from Allied London, meeting place, etc, I will PM that information to those attending the tour.

Many thanks.

Another update.

Firstly. Sorry I haven't replied to those of you who can't make the tour. Thanks for letting me know.

I've now got the list of those that can go on the tour.

I'm still waiting on the following people to let me know if they can attend the tour or not. Can you please let me know either way via PM if you can attend the tour or not. I need to know by tonight. PM's will be sent shortly as a final reminder to the following People. Thanks.


Update.

All have replied. Thanks.

OK.

I put you on the list anyway.

Thank you to everyone who asked to go on the tour.

Sorry the date didn't suit everyone. We had to pick a day and a time. We tried to give people at least 2 weeks notice, or as good as.

Will send the list to Allied London this Week. Once I get told the meeting place, etc, I will PM and post it.

See you all next Thursday at 4pm. I will be the one wearing a red carnation. Only joking. Until then.

Waitrose Good Food Guide Top 50 restaurants in the U.K. has been released and The French is at 17 - higher than a lot of Michelin starred restaurants! (Also higher than any entry from Brum, but that's obviously some BBC/New Labour/George Osborne conspiracy so we'll keep that one to ourselves). Surely this elusive star is only a matter of time?

Ah we'll see what happens. I assume the bar on the top floor won't be open when we're there? (and if it is they probably won't sell cheeky vimtos)

Manchester Development Update for August is now (finally!) available as a .pdf

I've been spending the last few weeks setting up a new research institution for Manchester called 'Urbinfo'. It (i.e. me) will publish reports and just generally track Manchester's building/economic boom.

Early days yet, I'm keen to get feedback off you guys, some people I know in the press and of course the developers, investors and other stakeholders that'll use this information just so I know this is all good to go.

The Development Map is incredibly popular - now on over 55,000 views and I keep getting emails from various developers, architects, estate agents and public bodies telling me they use it regularly. It's great to see how many people are engaging with Manchester's development boom.

Anyway, onwards and upwards! Here's the August 2017 Urbinfo Manchester Development Update - the first of many (hopefully!)

Is that your picture, Ed?

Great stuff, matey.

Keep at it, expand it, think about possible annual subscription, and you could make a career and living out of it.

And yes, you should seriously think about what we touched on. There would be enough intetest, without you know what.
