Here’s to the future and the next milestone!

Improving the environment and the buildings in which we live and work continues to be a major focus in planning. David Cameron’s recent highlighting of the limitations of post-war housing estates and the need to create affordable housing in a more sustainable environment has highlighted the impact that better homes can make on quality of life. By focusing on energy requirements and sustainability in the conception stage and early planning, new and improved developments can be created.

As we previously reported, the employees of Briggs and Forrester joined in with some Halloween fundraising last week. From ghoulish masks, to devilishly good cakes, to an appearance by the black Power Ranger, staff were raising money for Zac Forskitt, a young man from Northampton diagnosed with two unrelated cancers. A donation of £400 will be going to Zac and his family to provide help and support.  

We had a great day and it felt even better to be raising money for such a worthy cause.
