Other news:

On a side note, one of our employees at Brewster Bye Architects, Ben Raybould, and his partner Charley were delighted at the birth of their baby boy, Eddie Jean Raybould, on 3 August 2013. However, Eddie was born with a serious heart defect that was detected at birth. Since then he has had 4 operations to rectify this issue and we are hoping that he is now well on the road to recovery.

Eddie has spent the majority of the past few months at Glenfield Hospital, Leicester where he has had outstanding care and Ben and Charley have received amazing support through such a difficult time.

We at Brewster Bye Architects are running the Abbey Dash on the 17th November and wish to raise money for Keep The Beat to allow them to continue to support and help families of children with cardiac defects. If you wish to donate to this wonderful charity please click here.

And that’s October! Looking forward to what November has in store for us.
