To be told that our lettings department ‘shines way above others’ was a wonderful compliment to receive today, along with gifts of wine for Kathryn, Victoria and Lisa.

After a solid 6 weeks of sales in our core areas we were interested to see how we have been performing against our competition this year. The results were startling & account for just a small % of sales made so far in 2019 across all our office areas. Speaks for itself we think.  If you are considering renting or letting your home in 2019 then please get in touch with your local branch and find out what we could do for you.

To prove the fact that lightning can indeed strike twice, a very lucky Congresbury resident, Pippa Truckle, remarkably won our Congresbury summer fete price of a brand new Amazon Fire for the second year running, by correctly guessing the position of the cricket ball in our cricket themed ‘Spot the Ball’ competition. Congratulations Pippa, we look forward to seeing you next year for a shot at your Hattrick!

The popular Chew Valley 10k and 1k Fun Run on Sunday 9th June, sponsored by Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, is now in its 7th year and will have a record capacity of 1000 runners!

 

This much-loved community event held at Bishop Sutton Football Club, BS39 5XN was started to encourage activity amongst all ages, whilst having fun and raising as much money as possible for charity. This year, the event’s main beneficiaries will be Bishop Sutton Primary School Society, Chew Valley School Society, local charity, A Life for a Cure, Ryan Breshnahan’s Meningitis Appeal www.ryanbresnahan.org and Chew Valley based charity, NICU Support www.nicusupport.co.uk which supports Neo-natal intensive care units in Bristol, Bath, Somerset and surrounding areas, transporting donated breast milk from across the region to help premature babies at a critical time in their lives and also transporting mothers to their babies, when needed.

All CV10k entrants will receive a free technical tshirt and bespoke medal, as worn by the Debbie Fortune team at their Congresbury office, pictured with Mike Burns of NICU Support.

 

Mike Burns says “We are delighted to be a main beneficiary of the Chew Valley 10k this year - the support helps us cover our insurance costs for the vehicles and to continue the voluntary service that we offer. Premature babies chances of survival increase by 50% when given breast milk at this critical time in their lives and we have built up a network of donor mums from all over North Somerset and surrounding areas to ensure the NICUs have enough supplies. More information about the work NICU Support does and how you can support them can be found at www.nicusupport.co.uk .

‘We must be mad’, says local businesswoman , Debbie Fortune of Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, ‘ we’re opening our garden not once but twice in June to raise money for charity!’

 

Debbie owns Yeo Meads in Congresbury, a one and a quarter acre formal garden laid out in the 18th century, and situated unusually right in the centre of the village. It includes many striking features including lots of mature specimen trees including a 300 year old Cedar of the Lebanon which fell in a storm in 2009 and is now retained as a feature, an ancient hollow lime tree, providing an irresistible magnet to bees, large mature copper beech trees, an octagonal thatched summerhouse, plus a Victorian pond, tennis lawn , unusual hard landscaping and rockeries and a productive kitchen garden.

 

Debbie explains, ‘ We’ve opened for the National Garden Scheme a number of times before . All the money raised goes towards cancer charities, a cause very dear to my heart. This year we’re open on 9th June from 11-4pm and we’ll be serving home made scones, many kindly made and donated by Lisa and Kathryn from our Congresbury office and lovely local friends, plus strawberry jam and Rodda’s Cornish Cream , again by kind donation from Rodda’s , with my own homemade lemonade on the side.

 

We’re also open the same hours on 2nd June to support Weston Hospicecare, a local highly respected charity with a super charity shop just by our office in Congresbury. The ladies from the charity will be helping out, baking madly and serving homemade cakes and lemonade. So it would be lovely to see as many people as possible and I would love our visitors to stay as long as they like , make new friends and meet old ones.

 

There are also plenty of quiet tucked away corners and seating areas to enjoy the atmosphere of this quintessential English country garden right in the heart of Congresbury.

Our Congresbury Branch Manager Neil just couldn’t drive past the stunning Blagdon lake this morning, coming back from a local valuation without taking a picture. The crystal calm waters created a beautiful mirror like reflection of the glorious sunny skies over North Somerset. We are truly blessed to live and work in such a wonderful part of the country!
