AWAITING the next announcement with bated breath… no, not that one! The one from No. 15 Great Pulteney, who will be stepping out of lockdown into “a whole new chapter, revived, renovated and rebranded, retaining all of your favourite things but with an added element of fun and a little bit of wonder.” All will be revealed shortly, but I already have an inkling that this is gonna be exciting stuff indeed!
