Still Beavering Away

In case you are wondering why there has been no news posted here over the past couple of weeks, it’s because we are busy trying to pull together information that will support a Business Plan for a successful new Red Lion business.
Please bear with us as we beaver away behind the scenes! Oh, and we might take a break over the Xmas and New Year festive time!
Keep in touch with this blog as information on the Campaign’s next activities will hit these screens soon rather than later.
