July News Update
10 Year Celebration Evening
Thank you to all who attended our 10 year celebration evening at the All Stars bowling venue in Bloomsbury Square. Clients, property managers, consultants and contractors across the field joined the Harris team for a brilliant evening of fun including ten pin bowling, darts and mercifully a minimum of karaoke. “It was fabulous to see so many of those who have played an important role in our success over the last 10 years. I am very much looking forward to developing the company further and building on what we have in place now in 2017. Role on the next 10 years!” Shaun Harris
