                                     ("TNH", the "Company" or the "Group")
                                           UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS
Trafalgar New Homes PLC today announces its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2012.

                                             CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT
The  first  six  months  of  the  current year show minimal turnover and a consolidated  loss  of  £102,000  in
accordance  with the Company's projections that the principal turnover and profitability for  the  year  to  31
March 2013 will arise in the second half.

The  above does not mean that there has been no activity, however.  Following on from my comments and those  of
the  Managing  Director  in  the  Statements accompanying the Accounts  for  the  year  ended  31  March  2012,
construction  has continued on our sites in Kent at High Street, Edenbridge and Oakhurst Manor,  Hildenborough.
On  those  two  sites  we  will aim to deliver 23 residential homes being 8 x two  bed  apartments,  a  studio,
penthouse,  cottage  (and  a  shop)  at  Edenbridge and 12 three/four/five  bedroom  houses  at  Hildenborough.
Completion  of the construction of the Edenbridge site has been achieved; on the Hildenborough site, completion
of the build is anticipated for March/April 2013.

The  twelve  units at Edenbridge are now being marketed for sale, which should contribute towards  the  Group's
results  for  the year ended 31 March 2013.  With the other pending sales, I can say that we are  currently  on
target to achieve our internal projections for the current year.  I am confident we will show enhanced earnings
per share for the Group as a result.

Future  sales of the Hildenborough houses should contribute to the anticipated enhanced profitability  for  the
year end 31.03.2014.

Land  supply  remains  good, with the Group continuing to concentrate on the purchase of  sites  with  planning
permission and 'brownfield' sites where we anticipate enhancing the planning status of the site and, therefore,
its  value.  Terms have been agreed for options and conditional contracts on a number of sites, in addition  to
those sites we have agreed to purchase which already have planning permission.

We  anticipate buying land and building houses across all market sectors, from two/three bed starter homes  and
apartments  up  to five/six bedroom executive detached houses.  Most sites will be for private housing  but  we
will accommodate affordable housing when it is required, as part of the planning consent.

We  have  a  continuing  commitment  to provide quality homes at realistic prices  in  the  most  sought  after

On behalf of the Board

Notes to the pro forma information

(i)   The creditors of the Company represent a bank loan repayable in 24 equal monthly instalments.

(ii)  The  net assets of the Company have been extracted from Part 4 of this Document and adjusted  for  the
      negotiated split of the bank loan per note (i) above.

(iii) The  net  assets  of  Combe Bank have been extracted without adjustment from  the  six  month  interim
      accounts to 31 May 2011 included in Part 5 of this Document. No account has been taken of the activities of
      Combe Bank since 31 May 2011.

(iv)  The  adjustment assumes Trafalgar New Homes Ltd acquires all of the £100,000 of ordinary share capital
      of Combe Bank Homes Ltd by issuing 186,817,671 Ordinary 1p shares at a price of 1.2p. Using the Balance Sheets
      above, such a transaction would give rise to goodwill on consolidation of circa £3.69m for the enlarged group.
      This  goodwill  would be subject to an impairment review, and due to the insolvent balance  sheets  of  both
      companies, would most likely be written off in its entirety. Hence, there would be no impact on the net assets
      of the company as shown above.
