There’s no such thing as a free lunch? MORE THAN 80 people attended a free lunch event at Quesada Fish & Chips on Wednesday 4th June. Hosted by four companies, AES International (Investments and Pensions), Avalon (Funeral Planning), Pellicer and Heredia (Legal and Tax) and Currencies Direct (Currency exchange), the lunch was a huge success. Each company gave a 5 minute overview of what areas they specialised in and then the famous Mr Simon Morton from Sunshine FM took to the floor to allow people to direct questions to the four specialist speakers. This was followed by delicious fish and chips and diners had the opportunity to relax, enjoy their meal and meet new people! Attendees were delighted with the informal yet highly instructive event, coming away with their questions answered - and many have gone on to request more information and advice from the four specialist companies, all of whom offered a free of charge consultation to anyone who wanted a more detailed discussion. The event was such a success a second date has already been agreed. So if free fish and chips appeals to you, and you would like some advice from the companies involved reserve your space by sending your details to email@example.com or telephone 966 799 070. The next event will be held at Quesada Fish and Chips, Villamartin on Wednesday 2nd July at 12 noon.
