Following the recent burglary at Evans House, wherein an intruder felt the need to steal several pairs of knickers and a broken TV monitor, BBC's "Caught Red Handed" came to interview some of the tenants and management at Evans House Business Centre in Warrington.
Sadly, although Dom Littlewood presents the program, he was not here to do the interviews. We contacted Dom Littlewood to ask why he could not be bothered to come to Warrington but he declined to comment. We did however receive a letter from his solicitors asking us to stop emailing him pictures of Humpty Dumpty, as it was apparently offensive.
A lovely lady called Julie and camera man Matt did however pop up to have a wander around the building and perform the interviews. Matt also felt the need to film from the roof, not because it was relevant to the documentary at all, but because he needed a quick fag break. The episode of Caught Red Handed will be aired some time in September 2016. Please feel free to have giggle at our expense.
Exciting times at Evans House Business Centre in Warrington. With only a few units left, we are considering putting tents on the car park or renting out cardboard boxes in the street to cope with the current demand for new tenants.
Anyway, we have been in discussions with Graeme Finneran of Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jutsu Bolton who hopes to expand their operations into Warrington.
After a few initial concerns, Graeme has confirmed that the term 'Brazilian' has nothing to do with shaving people after having grappled them to the floor. Phew!

This week Evans House Business Centre welcomed its latest tenant, Josh Butler of Trianglestudio. Josh is a music producer, international DJ, whatever that is and evil minion. Whilst we'd love to make up some other things about Josh, thankfully the laws of defamation prevent us from doing so. More informantion to follow...
It's been a long hot week here at Evans House. Before we completed the install for Mike Ward's fitness unit another tenant, Red Hot Chilli Catering Equipment has moved into the top floor.
I only realised this when I saw the half naked workmen shouting at each other as to how best to fit a 12 foot stainless steel sink into a 10 foot lift.
Red Hot Chilli is a well established catering equipment supplied based on Wicwick Road and part of the Greenwoods Group. Please feel free to drop in and see them at their Winwick Road shop for further information.
As customers keep getting lost we at Evans House decided to invest in either a state of the ars string tied to door handle system, breadcrumbs or a video to show where our tenants' businesses are situated. I lost the vote for string so we did a video. Enjoy!
What's your name?
What business do you run?
Mike Ward Personal Training
What do you offer?
One to one personal training, small group training, online coaching and nutritional planning.
When did you start at Evans House?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
How did you get into running a fitness training business?
By mistake really haha. I was employed as graphic designer in a marketing company. At the same time I was helping train a local rugby team. So I decided to do a personal training course to build my knowledge. From there it took over! I loved it, so I wanted to learn more and keep learning. Eventually I took the leap and physical training took over full time. The business is still growing every year : )
What is your top tip for running a business?
Keep learning and work hard, but remember to find that balance between work and play. I took me a good few years to realise that your rest and personal time is just as important as the hard work you put into your business.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself
I have represented Great Britain Amateur Rugby League in various tournaments around the world.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
Wandering around the hospital ward naked after an operation on my arm (I was looking for the toilet).
Where can we find out more about what you do?
