This month's photo was taken at recent a Somerset T20 match at Taunton. In what is turning into an annual event we were pleased to be joined by a number of clients and co-professionals who had to keep their eyes peeled as Chris Gayle took aim for our box. Good company, good weather and a good match; all in all, an excellent way to finish a working week.
Earlier this month Roband Alexmade presentations to local stakeholders as part of a series of workshops facilitated by the Prince's Foundation for a strategic site in Shepton Mallet. Working as part of an excellent team for client CG Fry and majority landowner the Duchy of Cornwall, we collectively agreed development constraints and developed embryonic masterplans. This work will continue over the next few months to enable a planning application to be made later this year.
We've had another busy month with a number of planning applications made and permissions / technical approvals secured for our clients.
Away from the office, we were pleased to sponsor the 100m sprints and 110m hurdles events at the inaugural South West Athletics Galaheld earlier this month at the Exeter Arena.
And finally for this month's news, we offer a belated welcome to Luke Salmon an undergraduate at Exeter University who is currently working with our flood risk team as a summer intern. Luke recently brought in home made cakes, doing his future career prospects no harm at all.
