GWA Staff and Community News – Winter 2020
Appointments and Work Anniversaries
We have a new and a not-so-new addition to our Berwick office. We are pleased to welcome David Simpson to our growing Wealth Management department. David joined us in November as Business Development Consultant, adding strength to our existing team which provides our clients with expert financial advice. We also welcome back a familiar face, Vanda Martin, who returns to our Marketing team.
We would like to congratulate Sharon Easton on achieving 10 years of service.
What with one thing and another, we have had less opportunities during 2020 to contribute to events and causes that are close to the hearts of our staff and clients. We were pleased though to be able to donate to the following local causes though our Staff Community Support Initiative: Dunbar Hockey Club Juniors was nominated by Julie Adams, the Space to Grow Mental Health Growing Project was put forward by staff member and project volunteer Jacqui Bates and Steven Burns nominated Duns Football Club.
We have also been able to support the Berwick Literary Festival and help with the production of Haddington Pipe Band’s 2021 Calendar. Most recently we have tried to encourage local Berwick businesses, many of whom are our clients, by contributing to the Berwick Christmas Voucher scheme organised by Berwick Chamber of Trade, the Christmas lights provided by Berwick Rotary and also had some fun taking part in the Berwick Advent Windows.
