Bill Wilde, District Manager with Lodge brothers who looks after the Surrey and Berkshire area on behalf of the family business, has been attending meetings at Sunrise, Weybridge, every three months, an initiative started by the residential home earlier in the year.
Bill said, “They start at seven thirty in the morning with a working breakfast, and are attended by several businesses from the local area. The main areas of discussion are where we are able to better serve the local community working with each other. For example, our Branch Arrangers may be asked about Probate or where care may be obtained for elderly parents, and working in partnership with our local businesses means that we can direct them to the correct people for help and advice. On the plus side, I have made new friends and it has been enjoyable attending these seminars”.
