Suffolk Remembers

Suffolk Remembers 2022

Amid the Suffolk Day celebrations on June 21st, Colin, Mel, Kez and Hannah attended the Suffolk Remembers event in Felixstowe, taking a moment to reflect on the lives of loved ones lost.

They dedicated a candle in memory of their dear friend and colleague Gary, joining people from across the region in remembering special friends and relatives and lighting up the beautiful gardens with 5,000 candles.

The candles were lit as the sun set on the longest day of the year, spanning across Felixstowe Seafront gardens. They will be displayed for all to see until Friday 24 June 2022.

Kingsfleet were proud to once again sponsor the letter ‘K’ as we have each year since 2019. Together, with other local sponsors we filled sixteen large wooden letters that spell out SUFFOLK REMEMBERS with beautiful candles, in memory and celebration of loved ones.

Lunch at Fynn Valley Terrace

Wednesday 4th May 2022 marked a very special occasion, as we were delighted to host our first face-to-face client event since the pandemic. Indeed, this was the first chance to publicly acknowledge our landmark 10th birthday; two years late, as Covid brought the planned celebrations back in Spring 2020 to a swift halt.

Guests enjoyed the chance to meet and chat over a delicious lunch at the beautiful Fynn Valley Terrace, before listening to the wonderful guest speakers, Sandra Gosling from The Blossom Appeal and Liz Baldwin from St Elizabeth’s Hospice; both fantastic local charities that Kingsfleet Wealth are proud to support.

Colin then began his concluding speech by paying deepest respects to his dear friend and colleague, Gary, who is greatly missed by all the team. Kingsfleet Wealth have pledged to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation in Gary’s memory.

Rounding off the event, Colin re-capped the professional highlights of the previous year; including award wins and nominations, the evolution of Suffolk Money Podcast and Kingsfleet Wealth’s ongoing endeavours to support the community.

Colin’s conclusion about recent global events and their impact on the investment world, also provided some welcome comfort, as he shared several financial graphs and charts to demonstrate the likely long-term effects.

Kingsfleet summer

Edward III built his Navy for the Hundred Years War in the area of the River Deben known as the Kings Fleet. This went on to become a local landmark and was then used as the name of the local school.

Our name provides us with two primary objectives:

  1. Financial planning is very much like creating a vessel in which to sail. It is an initial plan which gets you on to the water, but beyond that you will need someone to navigate the tides, the current, the wind and obstacles to ensure that you reach your destination.
     
  2. Secondly, it is about education.  We like to think that, as a business, we educate three parts of the community. 
  • Those paying clients who work with us to ensure that they are sufficiently knowledgeable and informed to make important financial decisions about their own arrangements. 
  • To keep our local community informed using pro-bono work and general information that we provide through local media.
  • Through the provision of support for educational causes through our Kingsfleet Community Fund.
