CHANGE OF SPEAKER, SAME TOPIC: Sales Director, Michaela Lancaster and Construction Director, John McNulty of BARRATT HOMES, MANCHESTER will both be coming.

The housing market has been booming; Barratt have built a lot in Chapel en le Frith, and now their Midshire Meadows site in Whaley Bridge has a waiting list. Their recent annual figures were stellar to say the least.

But there’s fierce competition for land, and worries about rising costs. How will Britain’s leading housebuilder cope? Come, listen, put your questions.

Future Meetings


Friday 5 Nov: Lorna Pimlott, Sponsorship & Policy Director HS2 Phase 2
(West Midlands to Crewe, Manchester and Wigan). Down south, HS2 is under way with the construction of the Amersham tunnel starting just as that by-election took place. Not great timing, perhaps. The Act for Phase 2A received Royal Assent in February this year; routes were confirmed as long ago as July 2017. Yet there are fears that the whole of this section might be cancelled. Let’s find out what’s happening.


Friday 3 Dec: Derbyshire Whisky at the Cat and Fiddle.
We are invited to breakfast at the famous Cat & Fiddle Inn (starting half an hour later, coffee from 8am, speaker 8.30am). Karl Bond, of the global award-winning Forest Distillery in Macclesfield, has taken over this iconic pub and is distilling whisky from its peaty waters. A wonderful opportunity to hear about a local success story, see the operation, and buy your special Christmas presents.
