December with RRA
Christmas Wishes
2018 is nearly over, we’ve had the hottest summer on record, the prime minister as a dancing queen, a royal baby, a royal wedding and a right royal fiasco over Brexit. It’s been a very busy year at RRA as well with lots of exciting projects to work on, the opening of our new Gloucester office and Jonathon White joining us as a director.

We will be closing our offices over the festive break. Our last working day will be Friday 21st December and we will be back in the office on Wednesday 2nd January.

And so it has come to the time of year for RRA architects to say a heartfelt “Thank you’” to our clients, contractors, consultants and all our friends. Without you all we would be very bored indeed.

So we are sending wishes to one and all for a peaceful break over Christmas and the New Year and a happy, healthy 2019.
