In January 2018, Cooke & Arkwright consultant and former Chairman, Roger Thomas, took part as one of the guns in the Cocker Spaniel Championship at Sandringham, by kind invitation from Her Majesty The Queen. The two day event was hosted on the Wolferton beat, part of the Estate.

Other guns included Cooke & Arkwright client Nick Williams, Sir Gareth Edwards, Simon Hickling (Sandringham Land Agent), Peter Fawcett, Manager of Sheik Al Maktoum’s grouse moors in Durham, and Geoff Garrod, Headkeeper of The Audley End Estate.

I have worked with Jeremy Symons over the past three years successfully leasing and buying property in support of my business. I continue to be very pleased with his knowledge of the market and expertise. Our relationship over this time has resulted in acquiring 20,000 sq ft at Capital Business Park in Cardiff, leasing 11,000 sq ft at Southpoint, and subsequently leasing an initial 42,000 sq ft at Parc Bedwas, followed by a succession of expansions of a further 11,000 and then 47,000 sq ft, enabling us to centralise all of our operations at Parc Bedwas in a single 100,000 sq ft facility. The acquisitions were completed at the perfect time for tenant purposes and the rent fixed throughout the term at very economical rates. A job well done.
