Channel 4’s decision to choose Leeds as its new national headquarters is great for this already vibrant city which is expected to move up to 800 staff and bring more than £1 billion to the region over the next decade. Channel 4 have already had some presence within the north, notably Countdown, Educating Yorkshire (in nearby Dewsbury) and Red Riding. However the independent production sector is strong and fast growing across the region – Emmerdale on ITV set up here in 1972. Channel 4 moving to this cultural city in the North will enrich people’s lives as well as bringing huge benefits to the region. As talent is moving away from London, Channel 4’s decision demonstrates the immense pulling power of the city.

Enjoy the Christmas Experience I called into the John Lewis store near York last week in pursuit of a trouser press and was instantly impressed by the amount of Christmas decorations, gifts and treats already displayed. I have since noticed that Christmas TV advertising is well underway, plus the X Factor and Strictly Come dancing are now rolling nicely along too. Christmas is on its way but there’s still time to get simple things sorted in your home in order to sell by Christmas (according to sources at HomeOwnerAlliance) and these include:- Ensuring that you have good exterior lighting helps create that better first impression when buyers come to view. Don’t ignore the back garden, clear away leaves, trim the hedges, make sure your gutters are cleaned and that any summer furniture or toys are removed from the patio. Even highlight a corner of the garden, tree or a plant so that it can look inviting seen from the inside as the longer nights are approaching. Well stocked bird feeders also create a lovely addition to your garden which will delight potential owners.
