KAREN TOOGOOD

KAREN TOOGOOD

MAINTENANCE

Karen is our domestic goddess and as her name suggests, really is too good to be true. She has been looking after us and keeping our offices clean for the last 25 years! She really does deserve a medal!

Now our Karen loves her holidays with her husband and the odd cocktail or three!

SHEP WEBSTER

SHEP WEBSTER

Shep is our loving and loyal Border Collie mascot and all round good guy. Typical of his breed he likes to lay in doorways and keep his beady eye on us all. He has a very sweet tooth and any reps visiting are not allowed through the door unless they have a chocolate biscuit or jam doughnut to share.

When he’s not working he enjoys walks in the Surrey Hills and having lots of fuss made of him!
