2018 sees local estate agents Petty celebrate 90 years. The Petty name has been around since 1928 and the firm have lots of events planned throughout the year to mark the occasion.

“We’re proud to still be here after all these years and we want to make sure we involve as many of our clients as possible to say thank you to them and hopefully raise some money for Pendleside Hospice along the way” said Brent Forbes a Director at Petty whose father and now son also work for Petty’s.

“Our success was built on the relationships we’ve had and continue to have with our clients and partners, and those relationships have built us up and defined us. We are tremendously grateful to our clients – it is because of their steadfast loyalty and trust that we are still here and being finalists at this year’s Red Rose Awards is testimony to that.”

Petty hope to host events throughout the year from a 1920’s Peaky Blinders Day to a Charity Ball in the autumn, with a duck race and the Pendle Triathlon in between. As well as individual events there will be ongoing campaigns throughout the year to involve as many local people as possible.

Simon Morgan Petty Director who works from the Burnley office said “We’re proud of where we come from and we’re lucky to have such beautiful country side on our doorstep. We want to let everyone know that Burnley and Pendle are a great place to live and work and as the areas only Relocation Agent Network agency we can get that out to a much wider audience too.”

Petty will be showcasing the local area across their social media platforms too and want you to get involved.  They want pictures through the ages showing how the area has changed, or not, and want to compile a mass of pictures from a year’s worth of ascents up Pendle Hill with a view to possibly publishing a book and calendar at the end of the year.

“Pendle Hill is such an iconic landmark with tens if not hundreds of people climbing it every month. We’re asking that everyone take a picture at the trig point and send it to our Facebook or Twitter page with a date and every 90 ascents we’ll make a donation to Pendleside Hospice” said Simon
