Banging the drum for the West Midlands

In May, the West Midlands will get an opportunity to vote for its first ever West Midlands Mayor. Time will tell as to how successful this concept will be but I rather hope that turnout is somewhat better than for, say, the West Midlands Police Commissioner.

And there is a big job to be done. Which is why I have just written to each of the mayoral candidates to urge them to “take our region’s message” to London. You may not be surprised to learn that this particular property adviser is urging the successful candidate to encourage more businesses in the south-east to relocate to the Greater Birmingham area.

It would be good for us all.

Peaking for charity

As with so many things a suggestion over a glass of wine turned in to a major challenge, lots of training for the eight climbers, huddling over maps for the three drivers to get the quickest routes and some tin shaking amongst friends, family and business contacts to get sponsorship. A team of 11 including Managing Partner Charles Smith – who drove one of the support vehicles – was assembled for the Three Peaks challenge on the 24th June.
