Kingsbridge Holdings Plc today announces the following changes to its Board of

Further changes are that Brain Willmott has been appointed a non-executive

the company has also been changed to Barton Hall, Peel Green, Manchester M30
7NB.



Chairman Eric Cater commented:



'I am delighted to be able to appoint Laurie Turnbull as Chief Executive. With
negotiations for the sale of our two remaining subsidiaries well advanced, I
welcome his input and experience, which will be vital in leading the company in
a new direction.  I also welcome Brian Willmott, who brings a wealth of
experience including acquisitions and disposals and express thanks to Charles
Green for all his efforts on behalf of the company.'



There are no further matters required to be disclosed under paragraph (f) of
Schedule 2 of the AIM Rules.
