UPDATE ON LONGRIDGE
(16 September 2006)
last few months have been full of frantic activity and we are edging close
to £300,000, so are confident that we will achieve our £500,000 deadline
by Easter with your continued help and support. Please remember that
I am based at Longridge full time, so please feel able to drop in for a natter
and a chance to see our development plans and learn what amazing
improvements and changes are being made and have been made behind the
scenes to improve Longridge’s facilities, systems and infrastructure.
If you would like a copy of the Longridge business plan then send me
an e-mail and I will reply with a copy.
