building progress: two weeks to go!

Work is cracking on at the Blossom Bank site, and a quick visit there yesterday morning had things looking pretty different from the photos we shared a week ago!

On the run with Coach Kirsty

On the run with Coach Craig

My running history includes the London Marathon, the Brighton Marathon and the Paris Marathon. Some great events! My best time was 4:11 for the Brighton Marathon. For me the actual motion and endurance needed for running a marathon wasn’t something I found particularly difficult. The hardest p...

work has started!

Well, if we needed anything to perk us up after a rainy Bank Holiday weekend, the sight of the great big windows going in at Blossom Bank has certainly done it! What an exciting start to the week! The window work will likely take a few days, especially as there is one very large window that is going...
