Thank you for speaking at our event yesterday, from the phone calls and emails I have had this morning it was very well received.

I will continue to spread the word.

Each session was followed by a lively question and answer session. LEASE advisers were on hand to answer some of the questions which primarily focused on pitch fee reviews particularly the use of the pitch fee review form, sales and gifts, gifting a park home in one’s lifetime and making provisions under a will as well as many licensing matters.
