The Pomfrey purchase follows Bells’ acquisition of Hamilton, Stewart & Co in Kenley, Surrey in early 2017. “We’re delighted to welcome Pomfrey Accountants to the Bells family” said business owner Jo. “Not only is this a notable milestone for Bells Accountants, I believe it’s great news for our new clients and colleagues in Bexley, for whom it’s business as usual, but with the added benefit of being backed by a growing accountancy group” she added. “From the outset, my main aims are ensuring that our clients continue to receive the level of service they are accustomed to and that our new colleagues are welcomed in to our team with open arms - It’s also important that we continue to be a part of the Bexley business community from the office on Bourne Road and we hope to continue the long association with Beths Grammar School,” Jo added. “We have strong ties with the local communities in Chislehurst and Kenley, and the team at Pomfrey have worked similarly in Bexley, so we really are a natural fit.” CLICK HERE to submit your press release to MyPR.co.za. . . .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saYOIA4cmo8 Regular travelers flock the hills of Uttarakhand either in summers or in winters. But this Monsoon, in a bid to offer the tourists something new, Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board (UTDB) is all set to launch an enticing campaign titled #DoTheNew. Brimming with several heavenly destinations covered in clouds and mist, Uttarakhand is a perfect place to enjoy the magic of monsoon. The season is also considered to be the best for Ayurvedic treatment and Uttarakhand being the wellness capital of India also invites travelers for rejuvenating experiences clubbed with recharging sessions of Ayurveda. As the name suggests, the campaign makes a clarion call to do something unconventional; to do something new and enjoy the rainy season away from the city, in the cradle of nature. It asks for connecting with nature, gazing sky filled with clouds, getting wet, playing in the dew, dip the feet in the water and surrender yourself to the magic of monsoon. Keeping the demographics of the state in consideration, as a part of the campaign, UTDB has strategically identified 6 destinations to be promoted, namely Ranikhet, Mussoorie, Dhanaulti, and Kausani. These heavenly destinations are as loud as they are quiet; they balance out a person’s sense of adventure by subtly inducing tranquillity. The harmonic rainfall, the essence of raincoats, the excitement for some luscious local cuisine, the freshness of the environment, all in all, the perfect enthrals. “Hill Stations have always been known to be a popular tourist destination in the summers; with this campaign we intend to change that primary perspective and make people realize, that the hills of Uttarakhand are not only for escaping the heat, but also to enjoy monsoon season at its best.”, said Shri Satpal Maharaj, Hon’ble Tourism Minister of Uttarakhand, commenting on the potential of the #DoTheNew campaign.
