The doors to our brand new office in Dunstable were officially opened on 19th March by Mayor of Dunstable, Counsellor Liz Jones.
Having started the company from the kitchen table some 14 years ago, Spicer & Co have experienced an exciting and rapid period of growth over the last few years. During the early weeks of 2016, the time finally came for us to move into vibrant shop front premises at Staple House, Eleanor’s Cross, taking our welcoming, personalised accountancy service right into the heart of Dunstable.
At the official opening, which was held on the morning of 19th March from 10.30 onwards, invited dignitaries, clients and other guests enjoyed a champagne reception with canapes and had the opportunity to meet the team which includes family duo, Suzanne and Steve Spicer, along with book-keeping and trainee staff. Mayor of Dunstable, Liz Jones did the honours of cutting the ribbon across the entrance to the office at 11.00am. Other guests included colleagues from Machins, A-Plan, Level Trust, Belvoir Lettings, Deakin-White Estate Agents, and Britain’s top designer Helen Woollams.
Suzanne Spicer, Managing Director of the company says, “This is a proud moment for us. We’ve worked really hard to grow our business over the last two years but ultimately our success is down to all the people who’ve come with us along the way – our loyal clients and many friends in the community. This day proved to be a fantastic chance for us all to come together, network and celebrate!”
With more than half of our clients coming from the construction industry and the rest from sectors as diverse as cake shops to equestrian centres, we’re convinced that this move will simply help Spicer & Co continue to help other businesses thrive financially. We’re also planning to offer further employment/ training opportunities and continue the work we do to support local charities and community organisations. Currently the company is supporting Level Trust (a charity which helps improve educational opportunity among the poorest local communities) and housing association, Mary Seacole.
Director, Steve Spicer, adds, “While we needed a bigger workspace from which to operate and are continuing to grow our business, we’re by no means ‘Empire building’. Our clients put their trust in us because we get know their business personally. Suzanne is at the helm, managing each and every one of their accounts and that is the kind of service we want to continue at all times…. until we retire to somewhere sunny of course!”
