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!
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!
The Bucks SportsAid was a great opportunity to show support for the next generation of athletes, better yet the next generation of Olympians. This was also the event where we announced our sponsorship of Isle Owen ( Para-equestrian) and Joe Murphy (Rower).
The Jansons Cup was nothing short of a success! Eighty competitors were present each bringing particular vibrancy and team spirit to their respective teams. The gloomy weather did not thwart the enthusiasm for the rowing activities in the slightest. The notion of leaving the event with all the bragging-rights proved too enticing to let a little rain ruin the event. The Jansons Cup was held at Dorney Lake, a world-class sporting and events venue with a remarkable Olympics history. What an inspiring venue to go head to head against colleagues, friends and a variety of new faces!
The 100 Property Club’s annual dinner was a success as well as a learning experience. The evening commenced with some beverages and networking which kicked of the evening to a positive start. There were hundreds of professionals in attendance with their guest all in good spirits and ready to raise the maximum for charity.
This year will mark the 103rd annual dinner and auction for the 100 Property Club , the ages have not thwarted the dinner’s grace as it is still regarded as one of the biggest property events of the year. An array of over 300 like-minded guests from the property world choose this event to congregate, break bread and most importantly raise astonishing amounts for a number of charities.
A night of unity and camaraderie for a meaningful cause, leading with this description feels like an oversimplification. However when considering the energy and support shown for the Alexander Jansons Fund last night, it’s no surprise the footage from the evening all oozes the type cheerful exuberance only a night of laughter can imbue. The laughter was usually at the expense of Andy Gomarsall’s eccentric team mates.
