OK we are now in Chippenham

August 4, 2014 -

We are really pleased to have identified a suitable office in Chippenham for our business as it continues to grow and we are really pleased to have moved in over the weekend. As any of you who have moved your business in the past will know, it is not something you do without careful consideration as its really hard work!

We are holding on to the fact that our reasons for moving are very positive and that more clients is a good thing and that we should be grateful. The message and our reputation seems to be gathering momentum and we are very positive about the future for both us and our clients.

As always the legal stuff seems to have delayed the move then it all happens quickly… Telephones are now in place and I am trying to get the website updated as soon as possible.

In the meantime the contact details are as follows
