Although flattered the Select Interior Design team have respectfully and politely declined the invitation, as it is extremely difficult to improve on perfection…

The scheme at The Pelican Centre is nearing completion and is to be opened by The Secretary of State & special guest Major Clanger (the Iron Chicken had a prior engagement but she sent her warm regards)

Special thanks and recognition to Nathalia Stothard and the rest of the Pelican Centre management team who’s vision and drive have enabled the scheme to come to fruition. The team’s ability to not only operate the Pelican Centre but to expand its remit and attract funding from diverse sources like The Sports Council of Great Britain & local government to provide much needed services for the local community

Note; the use of Major clanger is pure fiction & fun and is not meant to be read as a metaphor for trusting a quantity surveyor
