As the clocks go forward, and the evenings get lighter and with extra bank holidays this year, roughly 75% of homeowners are planning a to home improvement or DIY project. And whether you are thinking of moving or just want to improve your living space, it’s a good idea to consider the cost of a project and what, if any, value it is likely to add. A good estate agent can give you sound advice on this and tell you what is likely to sell your home quickly and at the best price in your local area. If you’re selling, it makes sense to present your property as well as possible to avoid any potential for downward negotiation on price.

If you’ve been avidly watching the latest series of After Life, you may have caught glimpses of the old town of Beaconsfield neatly stitched together with scenes from Hampstead, North London, Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, and Camber Sands in East Sussex which combine to form the fictional town of Tambury. Several scenes from the series were filmed in Beaconsfield.

Most towns grow and evolve over the years, embracing old and new build, learning from the past but incorporating new design and planning for future needs. This is particularly true within The Frost Partnership’s network area spanning Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, and Middlesex.

Others, such as the new and old towns of Beaconsfield, sit more like distant relatives, barely touching and almost a mile apart.
