Race for life - thumbSome of the ladies here at TuckerGardner are joining forces in the fight against cancer and taking part in this year’s Cancer Research UK Race for Life.

Race for Life is an amazing way to celebrate the lives of everyone we love who have survived cancer. It is also an emotional and moving way to pay tribute to those dear to us whose lives have been cut short by the disease.

All entry fees cover the cost of putting on a Race for Life event, meaning every penny raised goes towards Cancer Research UK’s work in helping beat cancer sooner.

Please sponsor us by visiting our JustGiving page and come cheer us on at Parker’s Piece on Sunday 17 July 2016.

HH Feb 2016.inddTake a look at this month’s HouseHunter magazine, available as a flip magazine on our website and as a hard copy in each of our offices.

This is the first HouseHunter of 2016 and includes lots of beautiful homes available for sale and let.  However, available stock remains a national problem, so if you are looking to find a property get in touch with one of our teams who will be happy to help, likewise if you are looking for advise on a possible sale or rental.

If you are looking for somewhere new to go for a coffee and cake, or a light lunch, Cambridge Cookery School have recently opened their own café, with sleek Scandinavian interiors and tableware.  They serve up classic cinnamon buns, open rye sandwiches and other Scandinavian delicacies, including Danish Smørrebrød which is this month’s recipe.

We have feature slots available in some of our upcoming editions, so if you would like to see your local business featured in our magazine, email kmccloskey@tuckergardner.com for more details.
