JILL’S TAILORMADE FOR THE JOB
JILL Preece, a
business manager for Tailormade Oversees Property Solutions Ltd, was
recently presented with a brand new car after completing her 100th
sale just months after joining the Liverpool-based company.
Jill was handed the keys to a metallic black Renault Clio Sport
having only joined Tailormade, who specialise in bespoke solutions
for people wishing to invest in property abroad, in June last year.
A 27 year old from Woolton Village, Jill moved to Tailormade having
previously been employed by a cosmetics company in Beverly Hills,
California. She commented:- “I am absolutely delighted
with the car.
I’ve loved every minute of my time at Tailormade so
far; their support and encouragement has been vital to me clocking
up 100 sales.”
Ken Metcalf, Tailormade’s founder and CEO, added:- “Jill has
worked extremely hard since joining the team last summer and
securing her 100th sale in such a short space of time is phenomenal.
We wanted to celebrate the success and thank Jill in an equally
impressive way and thought a brand new car just about covered it!”
Taking Pride in our Promenades!
Youth Photography Competition launched by Mersey Waterfront.
Last Wednesday, saw the launch of a photography competition to find
the images which capture young peoples’ sense of pride in Sefton’s
promenades. The competition is being run jointly by Mersey
Waterfront and Liverpool Culture Company’s Youth Advisory Group. It
will include 3 age categories (10 and under, 11 to 15, and 16 to 19) with
the aim of getting more young people actively involved in Mersey
Waterfront’s Pride in our Promenades programme right across Sefton,
Liverpool, Halton, and Wirral.
The £8.5million Pride in our Promenades project has so far seen
major improvements at Otterspool Prom, including new railings,
seating, a children’s playground and the refurbishment of the former
Garden Festival sculpture ‘Sitting Bull’. Work to improve
renew key parts of the 3.5km stretch between Seacombe and New
Brighton gets underway later this summer, with potential schemes for
the Sefton coastline also in the pipeline.
Jo Hayes, Mersey Waterfront’s Pride in our Promenades Co-ordinator,
said;- “We want young people to make the most of their local
proms, so the challenge is to get out there with a camera and take
some really striking shots. It may be looking at a prom from an
unusual angle, showcasing its beauty, or capturing activities like
cycling, walking or kite flying. It’s all about using your
Councillor Warren Bradley, Leader of Liverpool city council and
Deputy Chair of the Liverpool Culture Company, said:- "The
Youth Advisory Group was set up to ensure that the views of
Liverpool's young people are fully represented, and this is a great
example of how members can get involved in projects that have a real
impact on our city."
The closing date for entries is 5pm, Friday 28 September. First
prize winners in each category will receive £50 vouchers, while thee
runners-up will get vouchers worth £20. Full competition rules
are available at
