Firstly thank you to absolutely everyone who entered a cake for our Cakesmash competition this year. Genuinely we have a lot of amazing bakers in our location, I think we should consider The Great Wales Bake-Off #GWBO and see if the BBC are interested! (Not C4).
So please put your hands together and give a warm round of applause to our most liked and loved cake, the CHOCOLATE OVERLOAD by Amanda Morgan!
❤️❤️❤️❤️ Andrea has won a FREE Cake Smash photo shoot (worth £150) with the amazing Safelight Images of Swansea – or voucher equivalent – to gift it as a present. We must say a huge thank you to Safelight Images, who have been incredibly generous and we cannot wait to see the results of the photo shoot!
Thank you again to everyone who participated, we hope that you all had a good time baking and we very much enjoyed seeing your designs!
Our last Dawsons fleet company car (our Sketty sales branch car) was designed using old pictures donated by David Roberts of Bryngoldbooks, but for our next pool car we are looking for something brand new for our design, and are seeking the help of local youngsters.
The winner will see their design wrapped around a new Volkswagen ‘Up’ by Hansign Custom Graphics when it arrives in November. Any participating schools, community, youth groups and individuals will need to get their designs in by no later than Friday 26th October 2018 ready for the winner to be announced on the agency’s social media sites on Thursday 1stNovember 2018, allowing the competition design time to take place during October, in order for the car to be wrapped early November.
This year we are looking for our local young artists to showcase their talents, and have the chance to see their design brought to life, and whizzing around town. We are, therefore, appealing for local schools, community groups, youth groups or anyone between the age of 7 years to 15 years (inclusive) with a flair for art, to participate in a competition to decorate our next company car.
The winner will see their design wrapped around a new Volkswagen ‘Up’ by Hansign Custom Graphics when it arrives in November. The participating schools, community and youth groups will be announced on the agency’s social media sites on Monday, October 22nd 2018, allowing the competition design time to take place, before judging early November.
This year there is no set theme to the drawings, you get to freestyle and give us something from your imagination!
Any individuals or groups interested in participating should email email@example.com to express interest and Naomi will send an information pack and design specification by return.
In recent years Dawsons Estate Agency has used its fleet of company cars as innovative canvasses to catch the eye of people as they pass by. This has resulted in the creation of an array of attractive designs which reflect the communities surrounding each of its local offices and these can be seen driving around Swansea, Llanelli, Morriston, Gorseinon, Mumbles, Sketty & Killay.
The latest of these ‘mobile canvasses’ has appeared on the newest sales car to join the fleet at the firm’s Sketty branch. This time however, instead of eye-catching landscapes something a little different has been designed. This new vehicle is wrapped with historic images of Sketty.
Dawsons contacted former journalist and now publisher, David Roberts, who for an amazing 21 years has been compiling pictorial nostalgia books which reflect the City and include photos of many locations where Dawsons sell and rent property, and have offered a well-established service for many decades.
David, whose latest publication, “Swansea – The time of our Lives”, by Bryngold Books, hits the shelves shortly, quickly responded to the request for Sketty-linked photographs to adorn the new VW Up city car.
David (pictured with staff member Christine Adams from Sketty office, who will be seen driving around the area) said “Having spent many years contributing articles to the Swansea Evening Post’s Property Publication I knew at first hand how professional Dawsons approach to the property market is. As a result I was delighted to assist.”,
David and Bryngold Books provided Dawsons with a number of iconic images of Sketty Cross from many years ago. Two of these were chosen and enlarged and printed in vinyl to wrap the new car. Most noticeable in one of the photographs, making the area instantly recognisable, is that of The Bush Public House, which will, no doubt, jog many a memory.
Chris Hope, our Dawsons senior partner said: “We would like our fleet to be unique, and take great pride in the fact that this new car is designed to be meaningful within its local community.”
DESIGN OUR NEXT CAR:
Our next company car design will be chosen from competition entries from all children aged 11 or under. If you are a budding artist and wish to showcase your talents and see them turned into real moving pieces of art, find the details of our competition HERE.
Dawsons Property is delighted to announce Mark Matthews as the winner of their ‘Sell Your Home for Free’ competition.
Mark, who has put his house on the market with Dawsons in Heol Islwyn, Penyrheol, for £120,000, will get his fees for free from the leading south Wales estate agent.
A nurse at Neath Port Talbot hospital Mark was the lucky winner who was randomly picked out ahead of scores of eligible Dawsons clients. Anyone who put their property up for sale were entered in to the competition with the winner paying no agent fees.
“I was absolutely delighted to find out I had won this competition especially as I have just had a bad experience with an online agent. It’s a win-win situation for me,” said Mark.
“Dawsons sold a house for me a few years ago but this time I decided to go with the online agent after being seduced by their claims of low fees, which I now massively regret, as has left me ‘out of pocket’ and my property not sold.
“Dawsons are especially pro-active with that personal touch and I think that goes a long way when you are selling a property.”
Jo Summerfield-Talbot, Dawsons’ Director of Sales, said: “We are delighted Mark has emerged as winner of our competition especially as he has had such a bad experience previously.
“Being a Hight Street agent it is all about the close-knit communities we work within, so we decided it would be a great idea to try and give something back to the lucky winner by selling their home for free. It has been a great success and congratulations to Mark.”
