GWA Staff News – Autumn 2022

As always, we are delighted to welcome some new recruits. Stephanie Southern and Gail Anderson have joined our Admin team, Beth Mill-Irving is the latest addition to our tax team and Amanda Parker is the newest member of our Vat and Bookkeeping department.

We are sad, however, to be saying farewell to three GWA stalwarts over the next few months: Daphne Bell, Anthony Hogg and Lynn Ritchie have clocked up over 125 years service between them. We send our very best wishes to each of them for long and happy retirements.

Outside of the office, we are celebrating the safe arrival of three little boys. George Arthur Burns was born on 4 September to Steven Burns and his wife Laura while Amber Thomas and her partner James welcomed healthy twin boys, Lucas and Jacob, into the world on 23 September.

A record number of GWA and Three Counties employees took part in the Great North Run on Sunday 11 September. Congratulations to Neil Forrest, Mark Harrison, Rebecca Lawson, Chloe Skeen, James Patterson, Ryan Wedderburn, Brendan Thorburn and Deborah Ahmad for completing the famous half marathon and raising valuable funds for a variety of charities including Berwick Cancer Cars, Cancer Research UK, Great North Air Ambulance, Action for Children and The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust.

Finally, the Berwick office staff took part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 30 September. Over £126 was raised was raised for this worthy charity and we send special thanks to those who contributed the delicious bakes and treats.

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
