    I got one months ago, nothing since. But tbh I'm not bothered, I'd rather they just got on with it instead of wasting money on constant publicity. I think by now we all have a fair idea if what's happening.

    I'm pretty sure when the last one was issued there was some small print text at the bottom saying they were having a bit of a break and the next one wouldn't be issued until July

    PS just to add that from what some reported on here I think Henry Boot are way behind programme particularly on the library element of works so perhaps this originally wasn't a scheduled break for the newsletter but they just won't have nothing new to report for a few weeks.

    Thanks for that - bit disappointing to hear that, but I walk past every day and I don't see much progress. Maybe they need a boot up the backside.

    It's quite laughable how little is being done. I work in the centre of Leeds and they've thrown up 3 large office blocks (now occupied), with a 4th about 1/2 built, in the same time they've managed to put the foundations in at Barnsley.

    Bloody hell. They look bigger than the library too. Very disappointing. Hope it's worth the wait.
