Happy New Year 2015

I am pleased to wish a Happy New Year to all David Salisbury staff and customers. I hope you have all had a great Christmas and that 2015 will be an even better year for everyone.

Snow is rare in this area and we make a big deal of it when it comes. Those of you who live in the north or even the east of the country would wonder about the consternation a few inches of snow can causes. People in our northern office can’t believe the fuss we make as of course they get it every year – and worse.Because it’s relatively rare, I can’t resist going out with the camera........
