Christmas 60 seconds

By Denise Allen - 18 December 2013
Christmas festival, late night shopping and amusing Secret Santas are top of the Christmas list for Adam Johnson, our Lettings Manager at Brentwood. Find out more in 60secs…

1. How long have you worked at Beresfords?

I have been working here for over half a decade now.

2. How do you celebrate Christmas in your branch?

We always plan a branch Christmas lunch, with a hilarious Secret Santa and we have a tree which we decorate in the office. We make sure we celebrate in style! 

3. Where is your favourite Christmassy spot in Essex?

The Christmas Festival in Ingatestone is a highlight. It really gets you in the festive mood!

4. Are there any Essex Christmas traditions which you know of or follow?

I’m not sure if it’s a tradition, but we certainly enjoy the late night shopping in Ingatestone!

5. What’s your favourite festive eating joint in Essex?

Blue Strawberry Bistrot in Hatfield Peverel is a real festive treat. The seafood platter and fillet steak topped with paté are mouth-watering and the décor is fantastic for colder wintery days. You arrive through a grand Victorian-style conservatory, with a bar which has cosy leather sofas and chairs, while at the back there is a heated covered patio area, complete with big plant pots and a bubbling water feature. Sipping on mulled wine there is ideal.

6. What’s your favourite Christmas carol?

‘Away in a Manger,’ is my favourite as I used to sing it in the school choir!

7. What are you most looking forward to this Christmas?

I have two adorable kids so I can’t wait to see their faces light up when they open their presents on Christmas Day. I just hope Father Christmas has organised everything on their wish list!
