East Yorkshire Pre-school sold by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

2nd May 2019

Redwoods Dowling Kerr announce sale of Avenues Playpen Pre-School, East Yorkshire.

Avenues Playpen entered the market due to the vendor Patricia Tweddell looking to retire. The setting maintained an excellent reputation, enjoying healthy occupancy levels with up to 30 children registered under its care.  Avenues Playpen was established in 1994, employing 10 members of staff to help provide early education for children between the ages of two and four.

Stating that they were attracted to the business by its fantastic potential for expansion, buyers Joseph and Gemma Pinnock sought to leave teaching behind in order to pursue new ambitions, running Avenues Playpen. With this being their first purchase, the Pinnocks’ plan to enhance the setting through longer opening hours and progressive growth.

Clearly elated with the sale and eager to start her retirement, Vendor Patricia Tweddell commented:

“I would like to thank Natasha I have always found her very cheerful, helpful and easy to talk to with any problems that we have had throughout the sale of the preschool nursery.”

“I am so pleased that at last I can retire after a long time in nursery work.”

“I would highly recommend Redwoods for their service.”

“Thank you again for your hard work Natasha.”

Delighted with seeing the deal through to completion, Lead Negotiator of the sale Natasha said:

“Working with Mr and Mrs Tweddell and Mr and Mrs Pinnock on this transaction has been thoroughly joyful.”

“Completion has been a long time coming and it hasn’t been easy for either party, but we have kept the moral high and got there in the end.”

“I’d like to wish Mrs Tweddell a well-deserved, restful retirement and Mr and Mrs Pinnock the best of luck with their plans for the setting.”
