WTW and Foster Law merger – update

As with any merger there is a long list of things that need be organised and a whole host of technical issues to resolve.

During this transitional period we politely ask that you bear with us. A number of the team are working at both locations so are in and out of the office more than normal. This may cause short delays in returning phone calls and/or responses to emails or letters.

We are also taking this opportunity to upgrade some of our computer systems and processes, which will improve our efficiency and effectiveness over the forthcoming months.

We hope to launch a new website in the very near future which will be much better to view however you access it.

Important announcement – Foster Law and Waddington Turner Wall Solicitors to merge

The Directors are pleased and proud to announce that two established and successful law firms are joining forces; Waddington Turner Wall (WTW) based in Keighley and Foster Law based on the Broughton Hall Estate, near Skipton.

Foster Law, founded by Diane and Robert Foster almost 10 years ago, principally offers company, agricultural and private client legal services. Diane Foster and the team will continue in their present roles from Broughton.

The merger of Waddingtons and Turner & Wall in 2014 has already proved to be a great success with an increased workforce and a move to larger offices on Devonshire Street. WTW specialise in a number of areas including Litigation, Equine Law and Family Law.

Director Michael Bower stated “This is a really positive and exciting step for both businesses enabling us to offer a more comprehensive range of legal services across the Aire Valley and the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.”

Both businesses will continue under their existing names with new websites due to launch in the very near future.

Marines Reunion – Mark Hagyard – Solicitor/Managing Director

Marines Reunion – 12 October 2018

Royal Marines Badge

On 24 September 1979 I joined the Royal Marines three days short of my 17th birthday.

My junior marine intake number was 257 Troop.

Of the originals who joined on the first day(over 60) less than 20 made it through training. During the course of the reunion there was some debate as to exactly who was and who was not an original as some joined us after periods of injury and rehabilitation. The actual figure is therefore open to debate.

One of the original members stayed in the Royal Marines for about 25 years and both of his sons followed him into the service. One of them was promoted to the rank of corporal and sent to the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM) to be part of a recruit training team. By a bizarre coincidence the recruit troop he was allocated to was 257 troop. Our old Troop number had taken 39 years to reappear.

This gave rise to the idea that it would be nice to have our reunion on the same weekend as the new 257 troop finished their training.

Marines Reunion - Mark Hagyard - 12.10.2018

The Marines Reunion

Following invites being dispatched 16 of the original troop attended together with three of the original training team.

We were also invited to watch the young Marines being presented with their Green Berets and a parade in the drill shed (it was pouring down outside) led by the Royal Marines band.

Once the formalities were over there was a photo shoot with the before and afters and a libation in the Sergeants mess!

It was a fabulous day especially as I hadn’t seen some of the chaps since we finished training in 1980.
