We are delighted to announce that one of our Directors, Robert Vaughan, has been awarded MRICS. Robert recently had to present to the RICS board showing his work and expertise over the last 10 years; he then underwent stringent questioning in an interview following the presentation. This achievement is a culmination of hard work and dedication and we congratulate Robert on his well-deserved success.
