As many of you know, we work closely with Bastows, a specialist property restoration business that specialises in beautifying London's most prestigious homes. 

Bastows are a company of some 40 people- a small business that takes a big view on its position in the market, investment in its people and its social responsibilities.

Thanks to our efforts andinitiatives they have been shortlisted for the Family Business Place 'Customer First' Red Ribbon award and the 'Family Business of the Year' award to our growing list of things to cross our fingers for. What does this mean to us?

Treacletiger and Bastows have supported FBP and their great work to promote the interests of family businesses for over 2 years now. FBP work with the finest family businesses in the UK, including many which go back over 200 years. In 2013 Bastows celebrate 50 years of working in London; they look forward to their centenary in 2019, and we are privileged to be a part of their future plans.

We were so proud to stand with Bastows as they picked up the FBP 'Corporate Environmental Responsibility' award last November in recognition of their efforts to be a socially and enironmentally responsible and aware business, and to be shortlisted for their 'Innovation' award too; to add two more nominations to the tally this year is wonderful. It's testament to the great stuff we recommend they do - and the fact that they actually grab the ideas and do it!

The awards take place in London on 5th July. We hope to have reason to celebrate with them, and will keep you posted.

Family Business UnitedSo that's two nominations from Family Business Place in 2013. Enough? Hardly! We can add to this to Bastows' amazing achievement in making the shortlist of the Family Business United 'Family Business of the Year' award. This means Bastows not only complete a hat trick of achievements, but could mark 50 years of Making London Beautiful by being Family Business of the Year twice over! (PS- You can still vote for them here!)
This trio of nominations recognises Bastows' unique and unshakeable values and ethics, their dedicated people, their skills and their unique approach; we are proud to share this news and to have helped Bastows achieve so much in the years we have worked together.

Most of all, we are proud to cheerlead for them, and know that we are doing our best by one of the best clients any business could hope to have.
