A very warm welcome to our new estate manager Steve King who joined the estate team in August.

Working in Torquay will give Steve more time to spend with his family (having recently seen his youngest daughter off to her first day at school). It will come as no surprise that Steve is a massive rugby fan and is looking forward to following the World Cup. He might even organise the occasional touch rugby session on the croquet lawn if anyone is interested?

Soon to join them both as assistant estate manager will be Jackie Myers-Prescott. Having worked with Steve in the hotel industry previously they have already worked together successfully. Both Jackie and Colin have been working in and around Torquay for the past 15 years.

Both Steve and Jackie are looking forward to improving the smooth running of the estate to the benefit of its residents and visitors.

We’re also welcoming Richard Turner who joins us as Gardener. He lives in Marldon, near Paignton and can often be seen on his pride and joy, a 955cc Triumph 900 motorbike. Richard’s favourite plant is Wisteria. Don’t hesitate to speak to any member of the estate team if you have any questions or suggestions for them.
