More than 100 guests were welcomed for food, drinks and entertainment at the launch of Ashtons’ new Bury St Edmunds office.

The official opening of the barn conversion at Fornham Business Court was attended by clients, contacts and friends of the firm who were entertained by a jazz trio led by Chris Ingham and trickery from local magician Martin Hinchliffe.

Also in attendance were Andrew and Gina Long who own Hall Farm and previously created Fornham Business Court, Austin Cornish from Bury Developments who undertook the building work and Bryony Southon and Jonathon Simpkins from Bluespace who designed and fitted out the offices and meeting spaces.

Leonard Newcombe, Ashtons’ head of facilities who oversaw the renovation and move from two previous office locations in the town said: “It was a delight to see everyone enjoying our new purpose built space here at Fornham Business Court. The project to convert this old barn into plush office space was a long one, but totally worth it. We couldn’t have achieved this without the help of Bluespace, who helped not only design and fit out this new office but with our recent Cambridge office refit too. Our staff are happy, the surroundings are outstanding and our clients are impressed”.

Ed O’Rourke, Ashtons’ CEO added: “It was an absolute pleasure to officially open our new office and welcome all our guests along to enjoy it with us. This is an exciting time for us and our staff have embraced the new location. We are looking forward to seeing the next stage of Ashtons’ development at Fornham Business Court and welcoming a further 60 staff here next year”.

Ashtons Legal employs 350 people across East Anglia in its Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Thetford offices.
