Welcome to InBrief Spring 2016

Spring is well and truly here and the growing season was very much the topic of conversation at Agri Expo at the beginning of March at the Kent County Showground. The show was once again very well attended by the farming community and it was great
to catch up with our many clients and contacts. Health and Safety was a subject being discussed at our Agri Expo stand and at our seminar, also held in early March, which tackled the complex subject of Asbestos regulations.

One of the many charitable organisations which we work with is Kent Community Foundation, of which I am also a trustee and on page 7, there is an article providing information for those considering leaving a lasting legacy for the wider community to share and benefit from.

Gullands is supporting a number of charitable events this year including the KM Charity Walk. Anyone looking for a fantastic day out in the Kent countryside should consider taking part and it is a terrific way of raising money for local good causes.

Across the north of the county, close to our Gravesend office, the Lower Thames Crossing is one of the many major construction projects which are being proposed and the benefits to the local community will of course be overshadowed by those unfortunate enough to be affected by the scheme.

Also in Gravesend, Gullands Associate Rina Pattar, has been leading the women’s networking scene, by taking over the management of the Professional Women in Business group.

Finally, as we head towards the end of another successful football season for our local clubs, we are proud to be sponsoring the shorts of the new kit at Maidstone United.

I hope you enjoy catching up with our news and also some of the areas of law we have chosen to highlight in this edition.
