Many people will now be aware that our Principal, Dr. Maurice Merrell was admitted to hospital in December feeling unwell. Following a routine examination, it was discovered that he had suffered a stroke. He has chosen to remain on leave, at the hospital for the present and while he continues to make good progress, the Maurice Merrell brand of good wit and charm are keeping the nursing staff and fellow patients on their toes.

Since visiting is not currently possible, it was much to our delight, and his, that he was able to take part in a ‘zoom’ conversation from the hospital to Beethoven Street! He was very interested to discuss the progress of our current work at Windsor and Tolleshunt d Arcy and to speak with several members of staff, we look forward to more of these conversations with Maurice soon.

Operations and management at Bishop & Son continues to be administrated centrally, from our head office in London by Daniel Spencer, who in his capacity as London Manager and Company Secretary and a director of the company has taken the lead in overseeing the day to day running of the company in more recent years working closely alongside Maurice. He is ably assisted by Simon Pulham, our Ipswich Manager and Andrew Crawford, our Administrator.

Maurice is anxious to return home and to work but meanwhile he extends his best wishes and is delighted to be able to play the keyboard that the obliging staff on his ward have arranged to be set up for him. We are sure all our clients and friends will join with us in wishing Maurice a speedy recovery.
