Last Friday, cyclists of the Cooke & Arkwright, the South Wales & Monmouthshire branch of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers, and friends gathered together to honour the memory of their departed colleague, Rod Perons.

The cyclists met up at Ynysangharad War Memorial Park in Pontypridd, and set off on a scenic 17-mile ride down the Taff Trail to reach their final destination: Cardiff Bay. The group consisted of over 20 cyclists, everyone was in high spirits and eager to raise money for Asthma and Lung UK. The first to arrive at Cardiff Bay were Ellie Hitchings, Tomos Davies, and Sam Burgum, but the rest of the group followed soon after. The weather was beautiful, providing a perfect backdrop for the ride. As of now, the group has raised almost £2500 through their Just Giving link, but any last minute donations would be greatly appreciated to help them reach their goal of £2500!

Mansford has expanded its investment portfolio over the last few years. Over this time Andrew West has provided us with a full rating valuation service which has involved giving a view on liabilities prior to acquisitions, as well as conducting negotiations with Valuation Officers on our UK estate. The portfolio includes a wide range of properties from shops, offices and pubs to major leisure schemes. He has been particularly successful in mitigating our liabilities to empty property rate, which has been an issue on acquisition prior to implementing our development and letting strategy. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew's expertise in rating valuation for all property types. The profile of property within his portfolio and the successes achieved are testament to his position as an extremely accomplished rating practitioner.
