Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management kindly supports South Somerset 

Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management was founded in January 2011 with the aim of offering the highest ethical principles and the best service standards of any Independent Financial Adviser in the UK. They have a long-standing relationship with the National Trust in the south west and recently opened a new office in Sherborne. We’re very pleased that they will kindly be supporting the South Somerset portfolio, including Barrington Court, in 2021. You might see them under a gazebo on a sunny day saying hello.
