We were ecstatic this morning to receive news that we had been shortlisted for not one, but two Accountancy Age awards! We are finalists in The Independent Firm of the Year for Greater London and The Community Award. At WSM, we work hard to be a well-rounded firm. We are committed to our employees, clients and local community, and we are proud that this is being recognised.
A magnificent Victorian house, set within beautiful landscaped gardens, was the stunning setting for last night’s summer networking evening held jointly by Merton and Kingston Chambers of Commerce at Warren House. It was a great opportunity for businesses in the South West London area to make new contacts and get back in touch with old ones during the quieter summer holiday lull in activity.
For the last couple of Wednesday afternoons, we have had different groups of 15-17 year olds come to the WSM office to present a variety of inspirational ideas to us. The scheme is run by the National Citizen Service (NCS), a government run scheme and the charity, Challenge Network; and is aimed at inspiring and bringing together young people to help the community and develop life skills.
WSM had an early start Friday morning with a coach leaving Wimbledon at 7am and heading down to Portsmouth for an exciting day of sailing. The weather forecasts had been closely monitored in the run up with weather warnings issued for quantities of rain and wind expected however once we reached the port the morning was bright and clear, with the water as still as a mill pond – perfect for those not so keen sailors!
