Its the address of Franks Accountants Ltd. Often small Ltd companies use accountants or solicitors as registered addresses.

Excellent. Only half an hour away for me. Very well located for the motorway network too.

Of course scene of the notorious air disaster. Easier to get to than Scalford even though further north. I'm actually surprised it wasn't moved to Yorkshire!

Indeed. The house we've just sold is under the flight path. Just as well they were coming in over Kegworth that day otherwise it could have been much worse.

Some relevant information sent to my by Peter. It seems the soiled blanket is in charge of shows now and who gets rooms, so that is me out again.

Anyway for your inf

For the benefit of your forum readers, and in answer to some rather ridiculous assumptions from HFS members, HiFiGlobal is now the umbrella company so that all the other activities such as the store, reviews, video, PR and advertising can sit beneath it including the forum which is only a part of the overall business. Due to the bad reputation the forum had before I took over it needed a name change from HiFiWigwam to The Wam Music & HiFi Forum to make it more accessible to a new and younger audience and also gain the trust of the manufacturers, distributors and retailers so that we can offer new products for review, give substantial product discounts to our paid members and also increase our focus on a new style of local Bake-Off events which we can take around the UK side by side with our new bigger shows which we intend to grow substantially over the next five years with one in Edinburgh and another in London. I also have a new satirical magazine coming out soon totally written by members from all HiFi forums - which should make very interesting reading which I'm sure some of your colourful characters would be interested in getting involved with.
