Property Big Hitters: howzat for a big hit?

first_imgGiven that the T20 match at the Hurlingham Club, hosted by Imperial Blue Finance in association with St George, pitted a squad of enthusiastic amateurs in whites (including Property Week’s own Mohamed Shaikh) against a team billed as ‘The World’s Greatest Cricket Club’, the fact that the outcome was an overwhelming victory for Lashings All Stars should come as no surprise.Lashings’ opening pairing of West Indies number three Kirk Edwards (1,101 international runs) and former India opener Wasim Jaffer (who hit 400 not out as a 15-year-old) took a couple of overs to bed in against Property XI’s spirited bowling attack from George Brooksbank (Leconfield) and Phil Dabbs (Amicus) but once they hit their stride the big hitting truly began.A first-wicket pairing of 269 (before Edwards retired) proved ultimately insurmountable for the ‘building batters’ but was hard-earned, according to the charismatic Bajan batsman.“It was a really enjoyable game. It’s a brilliant pitch to play on and obviously great facilities all round,” Edwards told Property Week.“It always takes a period of adjustment when you play at a new venue for the first time and I didn’t know what to expect against these bowlers, but they try.“When we’re out there, we’re having fun but at the same time you’ve got your reputation to keep – no one wants to get run down by a club cricketer. We still all get the buzz from being out there and finding your stroke so would definitely look forward to coming back next year and facing the challenge again.”Although facing an uphill run chase, several of the property batsmen enhanced their reputations, with Sam Christey of Rising Partners top-scoring on 36 not out against a bowling attack led by former England bowlers Devon Malcolm, Phillip DeFreitas and Adam Hollioake.Despite his innings of one, Scott Harvey of Contour Capital said: “I thought it was a superb event combining sport and business networking – and I am very much looking forward to winning the match next year.”Worthy causeThe attendees also maintained the property sector’s reputation as strong donators to charity. An auction, featuring signed shirts from Pelé, Lionel Messi and Steven Gerrard, as well as a signed Harry Potter series, raised more than £25,000 for Bowel & Cancer Research and other charities.Left to right: Laura Jane McCauley (Imperial Blue Finance); Tim Webb (Greenburg Traurig); Chris Madelin (Magna Group); Tom Harries (Imperial Blue Finance)Alongside this, guests also had the opportunity to test-drive Ghosts and a Wraith for charity, courtesy of Rolls-Royce.Andrew McNally, chief executive at Equitile Investments, concluded: “It was a fantastic event that will surely become a mainstay of the season: a magnificent setting, great hospitality, a first-class guest list and, most importantly, all for the most worthy of causes.”1st innings – Lashings World XIK Edwards (West Indies)retired151W Jaffer (India)not out118R Skinner (Teston CC)not out1Extras(w 6, nb 1, b 1) 8Did not bat: A Hollioake; C Schofield; DE Malcolm; O Shah; P DeFreitas; Usman Afzaal; CM Willoughby; M Bicknell; S Campbell; G GreenidgeTotal (0 wickets; 20.0 overs)278-02nd innings – Property XIW Cash (Spears Magazine)                      c CM Willoughby b DE Malcolm         3A Taggart (Cheyne Capital)                   stc & b P de Freitas                               17S Pranay (Spectrum Capital)st G Greenidge b Usman Afzaal25S Rixon (Studious Developments)lbw b P de Freitas8D Duke(Marsh & Parsons)b Usman Afzaal0S Christey (Rising Partners)not out36C Douglas (CDS Mayfair)c M Bicknell b O Shah8G Brooksbank (Leconfield)b O Shah7S Harvey (Contour Capital)c S Campbell b R Skinner1H Glatman (Abstract Properties)c A Hollioake b Hollioake4L Gamble (Imperial Blue Finance)not out0Extras (w 19, nb 2, lb 1) 22Did not bat: P Dabbs; M Shaikh; J Meier; M Brackbull; O DannetTotal (9 wickets; 20.1 overs)132last_img read more

Strong 2015 for ACS

first_imgCommenting on the results for the year ended January 31, 2016, ACS chairman Chris Leach said: “To arrange more than 10,000 charter contracts and achieve a turnover of almost half a billion dollars is a remarkable feat and a fantastic way to end our 25th anniversary year.”The strong increase was fairly evenly spread across our 20 offices worldwide, except for a downturn in our Russian offices’ fortunes, due to the troubles in that region.”The cargo charter market continues to strengthen and our cargo department, in particular, has had a brilliant year, buoyed by business done during the West Coast port strike at the beginning of 2015. We saw a 36 percent increase in the number of charters and an impressive 35 percent growth in gross profit last year.”He added: “Since 2014 we have restructured our Group Charter division and cut out an unprofitable revenue stream, which has allowed us to focus on other markets. We are starting to see the benefits now, with underlying growth of 14 percent in charter numbers and a healthy 23 percent in gross profit, as a result of this refocus.”www.aircharterservice.comlast_img read more

Scottish Women’s Convention Roadshow Is Coming to Dumfries

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInCalling all females in Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Women’s Convention is coming to Dumfries!The Scottish Women’s Convention (SWC) is a Government funded organisation set up in 2003 by the Scottish Executive in acknowledgment of the need to ensure women’s voices reach policy makers.The SWC operate to guarantee that women across Scotland have an opportunity to use their voices, ensuring that common views are reported. They organise several activities on a regular basis, as it is crucial that women’s opinions are taken on board.The SWC want to hear your voices on a range of issues including housing, welfare, health and employment and the perfect opportunity to do so would be to come along. Leader of Dumfries and Galloway Council, Elaine Murray, said “I’m a huge believer in women having a strong voice, after all, I’m one of only four female councillors out of the 43 at our Council. The SWC provides an effective way of consulting with a diverse range of women. The needs of women in a more rural area like Dumfries and Galloway will be very different to those in Scottish cities. I’m pleased that the SWC have acknowledged this and are coming to Dumfries. I would encourage local women to come along so that the SWC can learn more about the important issues which affect women living in our region, their families and the community as a whole.The information the SWC receive from their conversations will enable them to influence key decision makers – both at local authority and national level.”This is a free event with lunch provided and takes place on Friday 17th November 2017 between 11am and 1.30pm at the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries.
