Greetings from the remains of The Media Dept. Appreciate you advising that Stacey and I are safe and well and trucking on. Our building at Ground Zero was actually a damn good place to be. Whilst it may be very old, the complete refurbishment two years ago has meant it is as strong a place as any and stood up well enough for me to (stupidly?) race back in and get mobiles and the laptop! But the devastation in our area at High/Lichfield/Manchester is massive and unfortunately a lot of people will have perished around us.
We have had a number of wonderfully kind offers of assistance from up north and sincerely appreciate these. We’re holding up well but much of the worst news is clearly yet to come.
I can be contacted on mobile – 021 981-645 – and my email is now back up and running.
