Marston Bros

Marston Bros has been an integral part of Ludlow’s local economy for more than a century – first acting as a corn and seed merchant before later becoming one of the town’s most prominent property management companies. In 2011 the family business was handed down to its current Managing Director, Karen Marston, as did the company’s long-standing relationship with local accountants Thorne Widgery.

“Thorne Widgery has been with me since day one,” said Karen. “They had worked with my father before me, so I knew that they were professional, very friendly and always ready to help when we needed them.

“They do all of our accounts and audits, as well as helping out with my own personal finances. They also come along to our annual general meeting and present our accounts for the year, which is a nice touch,” added Karen.

She openly admits that she has never looked for another accountant to take over Thorne Widgery’s role.

“I have never even considered going with anyone else as they provide an excellent service to me. Dan Crowther and I have an excellent working relationship. I know I only need to pick up the phone or drop him a message and he will be there to help.

“I have happily recommended their services to a number of people in the past and I would do so again.”
