And what if things get tough? Well Windmill Lane needn’t worry as Robert lives under the mantra of a former Conservative Prime Minister – Mr Winston Churchill; “If you’re going through hell, keep going”. Lets hope there’s no need for that mindset but one things for certain – Windmill Lane have a talent that will bring knowledge, ideas and a wealth of experience.
