…and a decision that I made back in the UK before the frenzy of xmas has to be voiced. I decided that the project needs to go on hold for a number of reasons:
- There’s a deal that I need to put together in the UK that I need to be around for
- The dollar to pound rate has gone from 2 to 1 to 1.4 to 1, so the money I originally needed has increased somewhat.
- At the rate we are going, we would open in July – whilsy July and August are busy, Sept and October are wet and I’d prefer to open when I have a few guaranteed good months.
Whilst this is not ideal, Matthew and Ben understand my reasonings. So, the new plan is to set ourselves targets for the first week of April, hold construction for a couple of months before continuing on. Hopefully the pound and general world economic meltdown may have recovered a bit by then. Luckily I have finally found a bank that will support me through the project so at least things are looking up in that direction!
