At this time of year it is traditional to take stock of the year’s significant events and look forward to the New Year with renewed optimism. For many businesses both old and new, this New Year finally looks set to be filled with greater opportunities as the country has lifted out of the long and deep recession.
We have enjoyed meeting our clients and friends of the firm at a number of social events throughout the year.
In May, we held our Spring Social at the Maidstone Museum and were joined by a number of clients and friends of the firm to say farewell to Philip Dimond, who retired after 25 years with the firm. In July, Gullands held a very successful event at Maidstone United Football Club which focused on the growth opportunities in the town. This is a theme we aim to pursue in 2014.
Over the summer our cricket team played a number of matches against other businesses in the county. We need to work on our batting for 2014…..
Despite blustery September weather, the Weald of Kent Ploughing match was a resounding success and we welcomed many visitors to our stand.
And at the end of October we welcomed a number of people from the business community in Gravesend to our third annual networking event in the town. At all of these events the conversation has shown there is much greater optimism in the county and we are delighted to be a central part of it on behalf of so many firms and individuals in the region.
The partners and staff at Gullands Solicitors would like to wish all its clients and friends a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
This year instead of sending Christmas cards we are making a donation to the charity mcch www.mcch.org.uk.
Mcch supports people with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs across London and the South-East.

In 2013, mcch society ltd (mcch) celebrated its 25th anniversary of providing services to people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs. Over 1,200 people attended a special 1980s themed event at the Kent Showground in August, which included an Opportunity Knocks-style talent show and a 1980s fancy dress competition. It was a great day, which brought together people supported by mcch, their relatives and staff.
