The Founder of Offington, Peter, took a back seat in 2015 to focus on his dream self-build project.
He finally relinquished his tape and notebook and stepped down from the board in 2019, after 20 years and well into his 70s.
He is enjoying retirement and spending time with his wife & many grandchildren.
He is not directly involved with Offington now, but he stands as a benchmark of candour, wit, integrity and professionalism and moreover he keeps a watching brief and passes comment from time to time..
He sends his regards to all our long term clients some of whom, we are proud to say, have been with us since we were first established, back in 1999.
