We are delighted to be one of the sponsors of Wales Week in London 2018. Over 70 activities and events are taking place in the UK capital to celebrate and promote Welsh culture, sport, business, food and drink. Today the Prime Minister's St David's Day Reception takes place at Downing Street, where we will be represented.

There is a St David's Day Dinner at the Guildhall in the City of London and Lunch with the Football Association of Wales at the Adelphi Building in Covent Garden Riverside. Music will be enjoyed at a Concert in Westminster Central Hall and a Gig Night at the London Welsh Centre. You can sample a taste of Welsh produce at Borough Market and Paddington Station. There are many more events and you can check the full list here.

As one of Wales's leading commercial property advisory firms with Wales based experts on Welsh property, it is important for Cooke & Arkwright to support this great initiative and help develop stronger links between two key UK hotspots.

With so much interest in Wales as a property investment destination, there has never been a more important time to showcase the best of Wales in London. A large proportion of our client-base comprise London based investors, occupiers and developers who turn to Cooke & Arkwright for specialist advice on their commercial property assets. Like other great Welsh businesses taking part, we are proud to raise our profile and build our networks in London.

Now in its second year, Wales Week in London has gained a strong following and it is a tremendous way to celebrate Welsh success stories. The initiative launched on Saturday 24th February and runs to Friday 10th March.

Happy St David's Day from Wales!

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.
