I can enter any as its a 'special' month but the HQ has never been entered as its never really been finished.

Its a bit understated compared to more well know brands but as others have pointed out, the builders at HQ were very competent and went on to be the very brand names now coveted...

And... There is a rumour that the Greeny may have a link to Cleland... Maybe.

Actually, the real reason is that all the others are trapped in the shed :lol:
