Merry Christmas Everyone!

Merry Christmas everyone! Firstly we’d like to thank you for your support this year. Without our clients we wouldn’t be in business and we are grateful for your support and loyalty. We love our work and are passionate about helping the rural sector and making a positive difference to the lives of farming families.

BlackmanSpargo’s year started on a happy note with the birth of Rachel Anderson’s daughter Eliza. Rachel has been on parental leave for the year but will be back in 2018 to work alongside Rachel Petterson and Anne Hodge.

Our receptionist, Sarah Homan, left for greener pastures and our office junior, Hannah Burt, returned from maternity leave and has now taken on the role of receptionist. The youngest of our team, Rebecca Neame, is now officially our office junior.

Adeline Redman in our Whakatane office is keeping very busy and continues to support our Eastern Bay of Plenty clients.

We have continued to sponsor the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards for the Auckland/Hauraki, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Central Plateau regions and congratulate all the contestants and the winners on their successes. If you were a contestant please remember to call us to discuss using your vouchers.

We also continued our sponsorship of the Bay of Plenty Young Fruit Grower of the Year and will do so again in 2018.

Last month we were elated to receive (for the third year running!) the New Zealand Regional/Suburban Law Firm of the Year award. This award sits proudly at our reception along with others from previous years. We were a finalist in the Employer of Choice award and are thankful to our staff for their hard work and loyalty.

From all of us, “Merry Christmas and have a safe and happy holiday season!” We look forward to working with you again next year.

Our last day will be Thursday 21 December and the office will reopen on Wednesday, 10 January 2018.
