On the back of Storm Ciara and the quickly approaching Storm Dennis, who would have thought that the our first clay pigeon shoot of the year would have been a sunny (if not a little chilly) affair!
Work has begun on India Buildings project to build the first Virgin Hotel in the UK. The basement works are due to complete at the end of this quarter and are an exciting start to a momentous project: https://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/celebrating-virgin-hotels-edinburgh-0.
Today marks the seventh and final clay pigeon shooting event of the year! Throughout the year each shoot-day has been better than the last, offering our attendees new experiences, useful conversations and a Friday morning away from the office. This morning was undoubtedly the coldest and threatened to thwart our plans with rain and occasional winds. However, as our attendees arrived the weather became more favourable which also went towards raising our competitor’s spirits.
Friday 15th November marks the final Jansons clay pigeon shoot of 2019. Throughout the year, Jansons has been joined by many collaborators and friends at these shoots, forging new relationships and building upon current ones. The Jansons team would like to thank West London Shooting School for their continued hospitality and all the attendees for their enthusiasm providing the perfect environment for these events.
In this part of the season, it can be increasingly difficult to find anything close to or that resembles “good weather”. We find ourselves scrambling for opportunities to enjoy the dwindling sunlight while battling weather that curiously resembles the film “The Day After Tomorrow”. For those of you who have not seen the film here is a three-word description, it’s very cold. However, the weather on the day of the annual shooting cup was particularly favourable, so much so we had occasional bursts of sunlight bringing out all the vibrant colours of the E.J. Churchill grounds. With the weather in good standing and E.J.Churchill’s award-winning clay pigeon shooting grounds offering a scenic background our forty-four competitors had an exciting day ahead of them!
A beautifully sunny morning complemented further by the tranquil setting at the Brockett Hall, this breakfast event already seemed to be on the front foot before our guests arrived. Considering the busy, high-paced and often time-consuming environments we work in, Brockett Hall offered a relaxing change of pace!
The summer may be coming to an unfortunate end but that does not mean the fun stops with it. Friday 13th September saw Jansons and its collaborators participating in the fifth clay pigeon shoot of the year! The weather was particularly favourable meaning all of our shooters had the warmth of the sun to boost their energies for the morning. The format remained the same, first, a battle for the individual prize of Top Gun. Second, a battle for the Flush team prize. The winner/winners of each respective title would take home some bubbly to usher in their weekend!
Weekends are often reserved for rest and relaxation, a couple of days to disconnect from one’s duties and immerse one’s self into life outside of the day job. This was not the case for Andy Jansons and Paul Nash of Jansons Property, the pair trekked an arduous 24 miles, up three peaks in an impressive eleven hours!
We are delighted to announce our partnership arrangement with Elvico. A company founded by Toby Lambert, a Chartered Surveyor with over 20 years of property experience. It was felt that Toby would complement our existing team and enhance our ability to secure strategic opportunities in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and North London. We now look forward to announcing our first site achieved through this partnership.
Henley Regatta, the annual five-day event that unites thousands of athletes, coaches and spectators all in one place for the love of rowing. This year the Regatta had a different meaning to Jansons as one of our own was racing. Our rowing sponsee Joseph Murphy (far left in the image below) competed in the Fawley Challenge Cup at the Regatta alongside his teammates in Leander B. The team won the first three rounds of racing which secured them a place in in the semi-finals against Leander Team A. Unfortunately Joseph’s Leander Team B were bested by their Leander Club brothers who went on to win the competition as a whole! Losing to their teammates did not dampen Joseph’s spirits as making it to the semi-finals at one of the most prestigious rowing events in the world is no easy task.
