On Wednesday 23rd September, Mayor Dean Fitzpatrick (pictured) attended a socially distanced ribbon cutting at Stockport’s second oldest building, The Three Shires at 30 Great Underbank.
Locally based financial planning firm TPD Wealth Management Ltd. announced last month their intentions to move into the site, restoring its historical rooms to use as a base of operation for their business. This development comes after the previous tenants took their own business out of the area, leaving most of the building unoccupied for an extended period. The firm hosted the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion.
During a period where many events have been postponed or cancelled, the scaled-down affair was held in place of a proper launch event. Also, in attendance with the Mayor was Councillor Amanda Peers.
On the ribbon cutting, one of TPD’s directors & wealth manager, Rob Angel said,
‘While we’ve been a part of the Stockport business community for almost a decade, it feels like we’ve been operating on the outskirts. It was such a huge decision to pick up and move after all this time but securing the Underbank premises was a huge honour. When it is safe to do so, we look forward to welcoming our clients and partners into our new home, right in the heart of Stockport’.
Stockport’s Mayor, Dean Fitzpatrick is no stranger to unusual launches. In May he became the first Mayor of the area to be sworn in digitally over video conference. Pledging to carry out his duties ‘fairly and honestly’, he also remarked, ‘we are living in extraordinary times and no one knows what will happen in the coming months or what Stockport and indeed the world will look like’.
Now they have secured residency at the site, TPD Wealth Management encourages both clients and enquiries to attend their offices by pre-arranged appointment.
