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!
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!
This week Paul Nash addressed an audience of industry leaders on the issue of quality in construction. The event, which took place in Edinburgh, brought together representatives of the Chartered Institute of Building www.ciob.org from around the world to discuss and debate the key issues affecting the construction industry.
We are now six months into 2019, what better way to mark this milestone than a Friday morning clay pigeon shoot! This time around we had more of a mixed group, the ladies present definitely displayed some refreshing competitive spirit which made the morning more enjoyable. The format remained the same, a battle for the individual prize of Top Gun as well as the Flush team prize. The winner of each respective title would take home some bubbly to ease in their weekend! The favourable weather meant enthusiasm was high, this also meant our twelve competitors had no excuses!
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 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!
After the success of our first clay pigeon shoot last month expectations were high for our second. If the promise of a full English breakfast wasn’t enough motivation to get you out of bed, the prospect of beating your colleagues in some compettive sport definately did the trick .
