As it happens, I need not have worried because, out of the blue, a message was sent to me from an old friend, Pete, who said he was interested in putting some money in. I hadn't seen Pete for a couple of years but funnily enough we met pretty quickly after that message and chatted about Burly and Grum and what we both wanted. We've both had a chance to think about things and we're going to meet again this week to do some more talking and see if we can progress things to a more formal footing. There's quite a lot to think about.
So the future for Burly and Grum is looking very different even from last week - please keep everything crossed, not just fingers, and I'll update you next week!
