A property developer was working on a project which involved turning the world’s first hospital for horses into a modern retirement home. Planning was granted with the condition that as much of the original fabric of the buildings could be maintained. To complement this sympathetic conversion we suggested writing a book which detailed the history of the hospital. SRF drafted and edited the book and in an attempt to secure an opening personality, sent a copy to Princess Anne. She loved the book and, in turn, opened the retirement home.
