Plenty of cheer at Christmas partyLONDON Clancy shared plenty of Christmas cheer at Hartley Wintney Golf Club.

The well-known Basingstoke-based commercial property consultants and chartered surveyors held its Christmas drinks party, which was attended by around 70 local professionals.

Jim London, who is a director at the firm, whose town offices are at The Courtyard, Brinkletts House, in Winchester Road, was delighted with the turnout.

He said: “We like to show our appreciation to our clients and the professionals we work with as they are good to us, and this is our way of saying thank you.

“We wish them all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

Despite the challenging business climate, London Clancy has performed well this year and Jim is optimistic for 2013.

“This year has been very good for us – everybody has worked very hard,” said Jim.

“We have had about 300,000 sq ft of commercial- industrial space disposed of this year in the Basingstoke area. That has been a good show for Basingstoke and so it’s been very satisfying.”
