Leading firm of Chartered Accountants celebrates 70 years of support

Keens Shay Keens Ltd celebrates 70 years of support for Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce

 

Bedfordshire based chartered accountants, Keens Shay Keens Ltd were invited to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo last week to celebrate the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce 140th Year Anniversary and to be presented with a commemorative certificate confirming Chamber support since at least 1948.

The longest recorded supporters Vauxhall Motors were in attendance with one of their vintage models taking centre stage next to a brand new Vauxhall Astra which has been gifted to the Chamber for a whole years use.

The Sun shone and a balmy breeze swept from the downs to make perfect backdrop for some fizz and canapés as we heard congratulations from Adam Marshal, director general of the British Chamber of Commerce.

We also heard from Professor David Field, Zoological director at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. David explained the great things that Whipsnade was achieving for Bedfordshire and around the world.  David was particular looking forward to the Bank Holiday Weekend and was hoping to exceed the 39,000 visitors who enjoyed the Whipsnade experience on the previous bank holiday.

Jeremy Brockis, Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce chairman, urged businesses to engage and support, throughout the local business community and in particular through the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce.
