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 format remained the same, twelve competitors battling it out to win the title of Top Gun while also working together in teams for the Flush event. Peter Saville (Red Rock Property) took home the Top Gun title with an impressive shoot of 36/50. The Flush was won by the team captained by Andy Jansons (Jansons Property) alongside Top Gun Saville and Jake Booth (Campbell Gordon). 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.

Jansons Property have submitted a planning application for a superb new student residential development comprising 182 bedrooms plus amenities at Alexander House in Reading. Located close to Reading Town Centre, the building will offer students easy access to both Reading College and the University of Reading. The town centre is less than ten minutes’ walk away, whilst the railway station and bus routes are readily accessible for students. The design process and building approach focus on improving the streetscape to King’s Road and Rupert Street, paying close attention to style and materials. The students will have a fabulous facility to live in with excellent on-site managed facilities.
The site was purchased from Investra on a subject to planning basis and Jansons have worked closely with Barton Willmore (Planning) and Broadway Malyan (Architechture) to produce a fabulous new scheme. This is Jansons Property’s third student housing project following developments in Chester and Durham. All three locations collectively deliver 780 rooms and we are actively seeking further opportunities of this nature. Jansons is now firmly established in the student accommodation sector which compliments the successful schemes we deliver in the hotel sector. We continue to look for sites throughout the UK which meet both uses and remain happy to consider mixed use.
We are now exactly eighty-four days anyway from the 2019 Oxford Property Festival, an event that was created to celebrate the value of property across the county of Oxfordshire. Jansons Property attended the launch of the festival among an array of talented professionals. The launch was hosted by the good people at Harwell Campus, a location that is described to be the epicenter of the U.K’s innovation. Harwell is located in the Oxfordshire countryside which provides an interesting nature-filled backdrop to such a hub of science and technological advancement.
The launch began with some networking opportunities followed by an appetizing lunch. Diverse pools of professionals were present some of which were based in and around the Oxfordshire area. This provided an opportunity for professionals who work outside the Oxford area to have valuable conversations with the local property community. Considering the variety of professionals in attendance, its clear the property sector in Oxfordshire is very diverse.
The lunch was followed by some words from Matthew Battle (Managing Director at UK Property Forums) who described the festival as an opportunity to recognise the diverse range of highly impressive projects that exist across the Oxfordshire property market. UK Property Forums are also the organisers of Oxford Property Festival. Angus Horner, Partner and Director of Harwell Campus, went on to address the crowd in humorous fashion putting special emphasis on Harwell’s world-class offerings and contribution to science and other innovative fields. Other speakers shared the centre stage, each expressing particular pride and enthusiasm about Oxfordshire’s property sector. In the end, the message was clear, the 2019 Oxford Property Festival is an event every property professional should be attending.
