Bridgwater-based commercial broker John Eke and Partners has marked its 30th anniversary by unveiling new expanded offices.

The anniversary celebrations had a football theme, with the new premises being officially opened by the chairman of Reading Football Club, John Madejski, a client of the broker. Local footballer Jamie Ireland, who was recovering from a football injury, got a chance to lift the FA Cup, which had been lent to John Eke by sponsor Axa.

John Eke and Partners began in Midsomer Norton in 1971 and opened its Bridgwater office in 1998.
