Welcome to HouseHunter, our local property & lifestyle magazine... Welcome to the June edition of our HouseHunter magazine. As ever, you will find a selection of some of the properties available, both for sale and to let, across our network of local offices. We continue to support local events and are pleased to be sponsoring the Shelford Feast again this year. Festival events will take place all week, from Monday 8th to Sunday 14th July. For more information visit www.shelfordfeast.co.uk. Inspired by our colleague Andy Bassett running the Edinburgh Marathon last month, we have entered a corporate team in this year’s Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday 6th October. Andy Bassett, Jack Bunning, Sarah Burfitt, Sam Cooke, Jamie Curtis, Alex Gray, Githa St John-Ives and Magnus Woodroffe (aka ‘Team TG’) will be running to raise money for Addenbrookes Charitable Trust. If you would like to help them reach their £1,000 target, donations can be made at www.justgiving.com/TeamTG-Half-Marathon. John, Simon & Alex

New fascia and light box window displays at our Histon Office TuckerGardner teams care. We listen to each client’s needs and focus solely on what’s best for you. We have a buddy system in place to make sure that there’s always someone in the office to help. We don’t trap sellers in a lengthy agency contract or pressure any of our team to meet internal sales targets, because we don’t actually have any. We treat each sale and person as unique to make it easier (even enjoyable) for you to sell or buy your home. Contact the teams on:
