Welcome

The office is pleased to announce that as of 1 September 2020 Barry has become a partner in the business.

To reflect this our name is changing to Cunningham Grant Chartered Accountants

We will be changing our website, email, note paper and signage over the next few weeks.

There is no change to our addresses or phone numbers.

In ‘normal’ times we would have a get together at both offices to celebrate this good news but this is not possible in the current circumstances. Instead we are going to do an office calendar this year and will be sending you a copy later in the year.

We are sure you will agree this appointment is well earned and a good move to ensure the long term future of the business
