    Hi Chris

    Thanks so much for lending your time during visiting NHSGGC New Victoria in April 2009.

    I compiled my Design studies research as an essay & thoroughly enjoyed researching & writing this.

    You are of course credited in the writing. You could view it at in PDF format. There is a slight amount of outcome from the research conducted.

    Thanks again
