We have had a busy summer at Bartlett Gooding and Weelen. We hardly had time to catch our breath after the Mid Somerset Show before enjoying our staff summer party in Bristol, on a barge of the River Severn. The weather was beautiful and it was a lovely occasion.
Then immediately after that Bridget Cleaves from our Castle Cary Office celebrated her 60th birthday earlier in the year by abseiling 100 feet down the wall of Yeovil Hospital accompanied by her friend (and former employee of the firm) Helen Higgins. Bridget (who is normally terrified of heights) described the stunt as exhilarating and is said to be still buzzing from the experience and keen to try it again. Best of all Bridget and Helen raised just over £13,000 for the building of the Special Care Baby Unit at the Hospital. An excellent achievement of which they should both be very proud.
Despite all the excitement we are continuing to work hard and the up-swing in the property market has continued into September. Our conveyancing department has strengthened enormously in the last couple of years and the feedback that we are getting from clients and other professionals is that we provide a high quality service at a fair price. In other words, excellent value for money. If you are thinking of moving house please contact any of our offices to discuss how we might help you.
