There was no time to rest on our laurels though as we hurried towards the end of the year. Instead, we continued serving our clients in every way we could, helping them make the most of their wealth and plan their finances effectively. As part of our drive to be responsible members of the local community, we were delighted to make food bank donations on our clients’ behalf instead of the usual Christmas cards – truly spreading some festive cheer!
In November, we sponsored the Christmas Light Switch On made possible by the Tavistock Business Improvement District (BID). The whole evening was a roaring success and got the Christmas period well and truly started. With fantastic musical performances and other entertainment, and some delicious food and drink, we were all feeling the festive spirit by the end of the night.
Following the cancellation of Dickensian Evening in 2020, we were beyond excited to get all dressed up again. With help from Graphic Words, McCarthy Property Maintenance, and Tavy Signs, we created a beautifully intricate window display that told the story of the year.
A staple of the Tavistock calendar, Dickensian provides an opportunity year after year for the whole community to come together. With steam engines, street entertainment galore, carol singing, and a lantern parade, the whole night was a dazzling affair. We even enlisted the help of a snow machine and a living statue to help craft the perfect, magical atmosphere outside Hansford Bell HQ.
And all our hard work paid off! We were awarded Best Dressed Team and Most Creative Window Display in the annual Dickensian Evening Awards. What a way to round off the year!
