Local business finance company, Lion Bookkeeping Services, is encouraging new businesses to start up in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, following the decision on 26th June by North Kesteven District Council (NKDC) to proceed with a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) to acquire land for the construction of a new link road, as part of the town’s regeneration.

The £9 million Sleaford South East Regeneration Route will link Grantham Road, The Maltings and Boston Road, opening up access to the Grade II* listed Maltings site and the forthcoming Tesco Extra superstore – paving the way for £100 million’s worth of private investment in the local economy.

“The CPO will unleash huge potential in Sleaford,” says Catherine Smith, founder and director of Lion Bookkeeping Services. “The local economy is buzzing and there’s no better time to start up a new business.”
As well as safeguarding and creating 430 jobs, the £20 million Tesco Extra superstore will provide 600 FREE car parking spaces for shoppers, encouraging consumers to head into the town centre and enjoy what local retailers have to offer.

Catherine, who launched Lion Bookkeeping earlier this month, continues, “Most small retailers need to invest all their passion, energy, time and expertise into the shop fit, stock, display and customer engagement, so the last thing they want to worry about is their business finances. The new economy depends on an eco-system of upbeat, relevant retail brands, supported by an equally passionate set of specialist service providers.”

Lion Bookkeeping offers a range of services to business start-ups, including advice, setting up business structures, and putting in place accounting practices and systems to cover all tax needs, including VAT registration and returns and any necessary payrolls. Clients can also enjoy completed tax returns, prepared invoices with the appropriate terms and conditions and, through the Lion Debt Collection branch, the recovery of any unpaid invoices.

“The choices available to retailers are fantastic at the minute,” adds Catherine. “If you’re looking to start up your own business, Sleaford is definitely the place to go. With the creation of more jobs and the huge investment being put into the local economy, Sleaford will soon have a retail offering to be proud of – and business owners should be leaping at the chance to be a part of it!”
One such retailer is Beatty-May Vintage, run by Tara Hurst and her daughter, Sadie. They chose to open their new shop on Westgate, Sleaford, following extensive research into the area.

Tara explains, “Sleaford’s master plan shows that there will be more footfall, more jobs and a better economy. If it wasn’t for the town’s master plan, we wouldn’t have chosen to set up shop here. There are a few people against the Tesco development, but we’re all for it. We offer what Tesco can’t so there’s no threat, only the promise of more shoppers on the high street.

“We’re really looking forward to the regeneration in Sleaford and the Tesco development. It’s an exciting time to join the town as a retailer and we can’t wait to watch it grow from strength to strength.”
As one of Lion Bookkeeping’s first start-up clients, Tara couldn’t be happier with the service she’s received. “We spoke to a few people about our accounting; Catherine was so friendly that we couldn’t wait to work with her. Everything is in plain English and there’s no jargon or hidden costs. We’d be lost without her. She’s been fantastic!”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
