Howes Percival has expanded its agriculture and estates team in the East Midlands with the appointment of partner Anna Spriggs and director Jennie Loynes.

Spriggs joins Howes Percival from Hunt & Coombs and has many years of experience in acting for landed estates, charities and agricultural clients in connection with their property portfolios particularly with regard to disposal for land development.

Loynes has extensive experience in acting on sales and purchases of farms and estates, including equestrian properties, overages, and tenanted land.

Spriggs said: “Howes Percival has a fantastic reputation for Agriculture and Estates work, especially in the East of England, and this is a great opportunity for Jennie and me to work with that wider team and grow the firm’s practice in the East Midlands. We both know the local market well and there is plenty of scope for Howes Percival to add value to local landowners, agricultural estates and farming businesses.”

Maninder LLoyla Lupton

Ashby Workplace consultant and office fit-out firm Blueprint Interiors has appointed Maninder LLoyla Lupton as a project designer.

Lupton, who lives in Derby, holds a BSC in Interior Architectural Design and has been working freelance since 2016.

Blueprint Interiors, which is based in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, recently celebrated its 22nd anniversary and so far in 2023 has completed a number of high profile office fit out projects for the region’s top 200 companies. These included Melton Building Society, Worldline, Horiba Mira and Gleeds. Its HQ, WorkLife Central, has recently undergone refurbishment.

Lupton said, “Most workplaces in the UK, post-Covid, have had to consider a much needed shake up. There is no doubt in my mind that Blueprint Interiors can help businesses embrace this need for change. They place a lot of importance on wellbeing and understand that creating the right environment for an evolving workforce can make it an enjoyable and productive space. Now I get to enjoy working from WorkLife Central myself, it is evident that everyone here knows what they are talking about.”
