You would think that common sense would prevail and they would reduce the rates in order to get more businesses setting up there, but it has been like that since it opened back in the 80s so I guess not!

I live up the road from you. I am in Wokingham

You will have to come along next time Sly and I meet up for a pint (he is in Basingstoke) 8)

Deffo! Was thinking about this just the other day, funnily enough.

Jez has also said as another localish lad he's up for it, though by the sound of it it probably won't be for the next four months at least :lol:

Im not rightly local to you lot - i just tend to have work now and then down portsmouth way.

One day we'll do a meet thing.
