Thomson Hayton Winkley celebrated the official opening of their legal office in Kirkby Lonsdale by way of a social event for clients and business colleagues, held at the Royal Barn, Kirkby Lonsdale on Wednesday 3rd April 2019.
An official opening allowed us to say thank you to Kirkby Lonsdale – for the welcome we received at the start, and for the support we have had since, from other local businesses, private individuals and local groups.
We must make special mention of Kirkby Lonsdale CIC – who have provided
us with a lot of help and encouragement and we are very happy to share a
building with them.
Starting a new venture in a new town is difficult – especially an estate agency, a law firm and our financial services team, all at once. But in a way, we’re not really new in town – one of the big reasons we came to Kirkby was our merger with Pearson & Pearson who have been practising law in Kirkby Lonsdale for 200 years. We feel that the merger has been a great success – with one of the main reasons being the fact that Ian Fishwick from Pearson & Pearson has stayed with us to provide continuity, along with his wonderful support team of Linda and Carolyn. They have now been joined by Kate Seymour, originally from our Kendal office, who now spends part of her week in Kirkby.
As if that wasn’t enough, we also have our award winning Estate Agency office on the ground floor of our building - which has been open since October 2017 – run by our excellent team of Chris and Jennie.
The evening was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. The Royal Barn laid on a light supper which was absolutely delicious, and they can be commended for their hard work and great service. In addition, the celebrations were enhanced by very enjoyable entertainment provided by a small jazz band made up from pupils from the local Queen Elizabeth School.
A very successful evening all round – and a great way for us
to say thank you to the town of Kirkby Lonsdale for welcoming us to the fold!
