TMB "definitely not" moving to Wakefield says chairman

The Tripe Marketing Board will not be moving its operational base to Wakefield, chairman Sir Norman Wrassle told a meeting of senior UK tripe processors earlier today.

Responding to rumours circulating within the industry, Sir Norman said: "I can state categoricaly that we are definitely not moving to Wakefield, despite what people may have heard. We have been based in Preston for decades and, were it not for the quite exhorbitant increase in office rental costs that are proposed for 2018, the subject of relocating would never have even been an issue."

The small team of TMB staff working at Preston had expressed concern when the rumours first began earlier this year. "I have had to deal with people in tears at the prospect," Sir Norman said, adding that it was irresponsible for people to suggest that the TMB would ask its dedicated workforce to undergo such an enforced move.

"People can rest absolutely assured that we aren't going to Wakefield, so I hope that is the end of the matter," he said.
