We’re excited about further expanding our presence in the South West, following our earlier acquisition of Brunel Professions, and the growth opportunities we now have in Bristol and the surrounding areas. We are particularly pleased that the senior leadership team at Venture have chosen to invest part of their proceeds into Aston Lark as a commitment to long term Group ambitions.”
