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!
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.
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).
We are now three clay pigeon shooting events into 2019 and the competitiveness has remained unrelenting. It’s always amazing to see a group of people who may not know each other basking in the competitive spirit. Regardless of the fact, someone might be a beginner and the other a certified pro, you will manage to enjoy yourself thoroughly. In typical fashion expectations were high considering the good weather we tend to have on shoot days, today’s weather was clear for the most part leaving our competitors with no excuses.
The Thames Valley Property Awards were nothing short of a joyous event! Held at Ascot Race Course, the event took place in the Pavilion Suite. Ascot racing course was the perfect setting, dressed to impress feels like somewhat of an understatement for everyone in attendance.
Last Thursday (25/04/2019) saw Jansons Property hosting a networking event for some industry professionals! Formal as this may sound, it was actually an opportunity to break bread with comrades in arms and exchange ideas. The event took place at Mayfair’s Burlington Arms with thirty-five budding property professionals in attendance. Tom Jansons described the night as “an evening with a good atmosphere and only a sore head in the morning to fear”.
Wednesday 10th April saw another successful evening at Jansons Property’s annual wine tasting event. Not only was it an opportunity to enjoy some beverages with like-minded people, but it was also a chance to network and make a charitable contribution. The atmosphere was indeed as good as the eclectic selection of wines we were indulging in. Who knew a room full of people plus a lot of wine equalled so much fun!
The Wycombe Social was an excellent opportunity to understand the professionals and opportunities in High
