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.
As well as hearing from industry experts, the conference
also included a reception at Edinburgh Castle which provided an opportunity to
engage with politicians and policy makers and promote the importance of the
construction industry to the economy of Scotland with the keynote speech being

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!
Ollie Brittan (Estate Office Property Consultants) took home the Top Gun title with an impressive shoot of 36/50. The Flush winners were the team of Andy Jansons (Jansons Property), Chris Thomas (Christopher Thomas & Co Ltd) and Alan Divall (Walsingham Planning). The event ended with a full English breakfast complimented by some good conversation, what more could you ask her after such an eventful morning. Jansons Property will be hosting other clay pigeon shooting events throughout the year and look forward to more opportunities to compete and network with more industry professionals.

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 Jansons Cup consisted of heats followed by the semi-finals then lastly the A and B finals to decide the winning teams. Aided by the excellent staff at Dorney, all our rowers were able to get up to speed with their rowing skills. The heats quickly gave spectators an idea of which teams would be the ones to beat, some of these being Blaser Mills (Songs Of Blaze), Barton Wilmore (Without A Paddle), In The Ship (a mixed team of colleagues and friends) and Savills (Savills Row). However hot on their trail through the cup were Bidwells (Up Creek Sans Paddle Avec Rose), Quatro (Quatro PR), Turley (That’s How Turley Row), Broadway Malyan (ArchAngels) and the host Jansons Property. In the end, the “Crabbing” award was given Quatro who may have finished last in the competition but displayed the most heart! The B finals award went to our runners up Savills who were a consistent threat throughout the competition. However, after a rocky start to the competition Blaser Mills took the title trophy home making them the winners of the Jansons Cup 2019.
The event ended with a short awards ceremony and a feast fit for a venue full of hungry rowers. An interesting fact provided by Joseph Murphy (Jansons Sponsee Rower) during dinner, the average rowing athlete consumes 6000 calories per day. Suddenly the buffet on display did not seem like it would last very long with 4 other professional rowers in the room! The final achievement of the day was truly astounding, due to the generous donations from our guests, over ten thousand pounds was raised for the Alexander Jansons Fund. These donations will support the funding of research into the causes, prevention and cures of Myocarditis.
We would like to thank all of the
competitors and supporters for making this year’s Jansons Cup a spectacle to
remember. We look forward to hosting an even more memorable event next year! If
