Ford Simey Solicitors host their first Exmouth Business Event of 2014

Over 70 representatives of the local Exmouth and East Devon business community gathered to celebrate the coming year at Ford Simey Solicitors’ first business event of 2014, which was hosted at The Manor Hotel in Exmouth.

Head of Residential Property at Ford Simey, Linda Hewitt, welcomed guest of honour the Deputy Mayor of Exmouth, Cllr Bill Nash saying: “With the economic recovery reportedly well under way, we must not forget that a successful business community needs to continue nurturing strong links with fellow professionals.

“Now, more than ever, we also need to make sure that we continue to offer a consistently first class service to our clients. On the subject of maintaining standards and delivering the best service possible, Ford Simey Solicitors were delighted to be voted “Best Professional Services Company” at the very successful inaugural Exmouth Business Awards of which Ford Simey was one of the founding sponsors.”

Deputy Mayor Bill Nash echoed these sentiments saying: “The breadth of businesses and professions attending Ford Simey’s New Year event is indicative of the sort of people we have in Exmouth. It’s your hard work that contributes to keeping Exmouth alive.It’s great that we are now starting to see fewer empty shop fronts in the town and several new business start-ups. We know it’s hard and their enthusiasm should be congratulated.

“We are really looking forward to 2014 in Exmouth. Among several highlights is the National Lifeguard Championships, which will be hosted in Exmouth for the first time with our bid winning against those of Torquay and Bournemouth!This August event should see 3,500 competitors and 5,000 supporters coming to Exmouth which will certainly help boost the town’s economy.”

Linda invited Cllr Nash and Town Crier Roger Bourgein to assist with a Prize Draw and the winning business card drawn belonged to Stuart Honour of Mortgage Help UK who was presented with a bottle of champagne.
