First design commission to develop a replacement conservatory for a 1930’s house, retaining the features of the old house whilst attempting to put a contemporary slant on the extension.
I have got into canoeing a water life in a good way and wanted to get a high quality paddle to use on the water. After much searching I went with an Edenwood Ottertail paddle that will be the first to be hand produced with two tone walnut/cherry wood. It was incredibly excited but I am looking forward to receiving my paddle and trying it out.
It seems that Birmingham council is going to have its way again where architecture is concerned. John Madin’s Central Library seems to of finally been put on death row to be replaced by bland corporate architecture. Progress?

Last year I ran for the Alzheimer’s Society in the Bupa Great Birmingham Run with a target of 200 hundred pounds, I ended up raising over 400 pounds and won an autograph from the legend that is Haile Gebrselassie. It was a great introduction to the world of half marathons and the fantastic people who run alongside and cheer people on the route, it is friendliness that I have never experienced before and I love every second of it.
In 2012, I will be running for the British Heart Foundation in an ever growing series of runs. I am hoping that over the year I will raise over 500 pounds for the BHF Hope Tank project and hopefully help in the many heart problems that plague my family and many families like us. It is a brilliant cause and I look forward to it motivating me throughout the year and get a new PB in Birmingham this October.
I am hoping to get a new mini video camera that I can capture some of my runs and training to show progress over the year. My website will keep track of my progress and the expected niggles that go on with it. I will create a poster for my fundraising effort in the coming months that will inform and no doubt delight you.
I have set up a new JustGiving page that will see me through the year, you can visit it here – http://www.justgiving.com/HeartRoss.
