Opening a new office in Whitchurch for Brockenhursts, the Estate Agents, Sir George complimented them on modernising a derelict building right in the heart of the town.
"The square is the most prominent part of the town, where four major roads meet. For years, this building on the corner has been derelict and has held back the sprucing up of Whitchurch as a retailing centre, which is now underway. Brockenhursts have bought it from the bank, which held it as security when a previous trader stopped trading, and have invested in it. Not only does it look better, but it will generate employment and trade in the town centre."
"I am sure the office, which employs four people, will do well. The housing market round here is very buoyant."
