Sitting pretty

It would seem that the world is coming out of lockdown looking a lot prettier than it did at the beginning of the year – and some of the @BNIWoking team have played their part in making that happen.

Rowland Belcher of @BrightlightSolutions and his team have been recently had to fit more garden lights as homeowners forced to stay at home have put focused on making improving their gardens. It’s an area that John Dennison of @Stonescapes also highlighted at the weekly meeting of business professionals.

Even as lockdown eases, its impact continues to have an impact on the way we’re all approaching our work – borne out by Kathy Parker of @AKPWebServices who is dealing with businesses who are increasingly online.

Meanwhile, the chance to reassess business has led to plumbing and central heating specialist Jack McGovern of @PrimusHeating, initiating a new landlord package and financial adviser Matt Parker of @CircleWealth, working on an exciting soon-to-be-unveiled, new project.


Perhaps the biggest new look was presented at our Tuesday meeting by handyman, Anton Botha who owns #MultipropPropertyServices. Already well established in Surrey, Berkshire and London, lock-down has given him a chance to look at where he can add value to his business and to his clients, many of whom are property managers and letting agents.

Anton was able to give the team an insight in a 10-minute #zoom presentation into the detailed planning he’s put into a new Home Maintenance Report Service which clients can subscribe to for as little as £25 per month. Landlords, agents and managers responsible for multiple properties especially are sure to welcome the regular maintenance cover and reports meeting due diligence, reducing the stress of a time consuming obligation and enabling more efficient budgeting. Looking after their properties will also ensure that they’re looking after tenants – looks like a win-win!
