Rosemary Bookkeeping Newbury and Basingstoke picked up two prestigious awards at this year’s Rosemary Bookkeeping Spring Forum.

Rosemary Bookkeeping held its annual spring forum recently, allowing business owners from across the UK to get together and discuss key successes and ways to overcome shared obstacles – topped off with a spot of afternoon tea!

The day also saw some business owners awarded for their successes in 2023.

This included TJ Sutherland and April Fost from Rosemary Bookkeeping Newbury and Basingstoke, who won two highly coveted awards: bookkeeper and franchisee of the year!

Franchisee of the Year

As Franchisee of the Year, TJ displayed the highest achievement in the pursuit of excellence and professional management of her Rosemary business.

Upon receiving the awards, TJ said:
“Our Basingstoke and Newbury Franchise are delighted to have been awarded the highly regarded Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchisee of the Year award 2023, after a year of dedication and hard work from the whole team. It’s fantastic to be recognised by the Rosemary franchise of ServiceMaster.”
“To have been awarded this on numerous occasions, reflects how we consistently perform and assist the Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our incredible clients, accountants and or families, who without their support we would not have won this award. We continue to work very closely with our clients and the accountants and we look forward to more successes in 2024/25.”

Bookkeeper of the Year

April has continued to excel as a long-serving member of staff.

When collecting the award on April’s  behalf, TJ said:

“April is amazing in every way and is so passionate about Rosemary and her job. She goes above and beyond with all our clients to help the team, works long hours and will always go that extra mile to meet all our deadlines. April assists wherever possible and I could not run the business without her, as she has been with us coming up to 9 years!”

April, upon finding out she won, added:

“It feels amazing to be recognised for all my hard work. I love working for Rosemary and hope to continue for many years to come.”

Yasmin Chaudhari, Marketing Manager for Rosemary Bookkeeping added:

“It’s great to see the network reach new heights and push the boundaries on what their investment is capable of. A huge congratulations again to all our award winners; I can’t wait to see what the next year brings us and see some new faces on the orange carpet.”
