Taking a Risk
A big risk actually - mentioning the airport. Again! Can't help it as today is a meeting of the Airport Shareholders Committee followed by the MAG AGM which as I chair it, I did feel obliged to go.
Although the recession is biting into peoples propensity to fly even on the so called low cost carriers, the Airport Group is holding its own, continuing to contribute to the regional economy, and still paying a good dividend to its shareholders i.e. if you're a Greater Manchester citizen - you.
Straight back from the airport for my monthly meeting on how to beat the recession. We look at the city centre housing market, progress on the Helping Hands Campaign, possibilities to use public realm investment to support the retail economy as well as our usual economic barometer. And then it's Elbow!
