JLD Update: Christmas Drinks Social

We held our Christmas social at Toto’s Wine Bar on 4th December, as well as holding a luxury raffle in aid of our new charity of the year, Children’s Hospice South West

Thanks to the lovely people at Paragon Costs we had plenty of mulled wine and mince pies to get us in the festive spirit and the place was packed. Thanks to all who attended – it’s out last social for 2012 but we will be back very soon with plenty of events lined up for 2013.

 Please see www.chsw.org.uk for more information on our wonderful new charity of the year, who we’ll be supporting throughout 2013.  

 Merry Christmas to you all! We look forward to seeing you in the new year.

 p.s. If you don’t already, you may want to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for more updates and networking opportunities.

JLD Update: Costs Event with Mark Beaumont

Ashfords kindly hosted our very helpful talk from Mark Beaumont on 29th November. He covered lots of helpful refreshers on productive billing, as well as a topical overview of the (many!) changes to civil litigation coming in the new year. 

 Many thanks to Mark for coming to talk to us and for making costs seem more interesting than we thought it could be!

Mark can be contacted at mark.beaumont@braininjurygroup.co.uk

JLD Update: Election Night and Cheque Presentation

The Annual elections held on 15 November, generously sponsored by our friends at Chadwick Nott were a little different this year – there were no actual elections necessary!

However, the fact that all the roles had been perfectly filled prior to the elections night did not mean it was a dull night. Rachel Sweet from the Alzheimer’s Society came to accept the cheque for £4929.06 which the Bristol JLD have raised in the last year. The Big Chill bar made sure we all had plenty of drinks and nibbles to enjoy and we saw the new committee year in with a bang!

Details of the new committee are members are available here .

As always, we’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas on events or other comments to make – please email info@bristoljld.co.uk
