Accountancy firm Freestone & Co, Gillingham, celebrates 25 years in practice on November 1. One member of the team, Simon Jenkins, has been with founder Robert Freestone for the full 25 years, but says he is not quite sure if it is the career for him – too soon to tell!
To celebrate, Robert Freestone is closing for one day to treat the whole team of eight to a celebratory meal at ‘Sienna’s’ in Dorchester on Wednesday, October 31.
Member of staff Julie Collis said: “People complain about how quiet Gillingham high street is, and there are so many empty shops. It just shows how going above and beyond for your clients, on a daily basis, returns loyalty. We have a host of wonderful clients who are ‘old friends’. I remember when I started, a client mentioned to me ‘it almost makes having to pay tax enjoyable!’ They did stress the ‘almost’ though.”
