Greenfield Heritage Park
Chris Wright, Operations Manager
The Greenfield Museum and Heritage Park in Holywell has 70 acres of land with a range of farm animals, woodland, a museum, mills and more. We’re a registered charity which means as well as running the Heritage Park we’ve statutory requirements to fulfil. This is where Gardner’s Accountants come into their own. They’ve been our accountants since we first set up in 1985 and their continued help and guidance has been invaluable.
“The relationship we have with Melanie Langton-Davies and Chris Vernon of Gardner’s is amazingly easy and straightforward. They provide us with practical financial information that helps us run the Heritage Park as a business, which is exactly how it should be. They come into their own when calculating elements such as how much VAT we can reclaim and forecasting our cash flow.
“This year we have been watching our budgets more closely than ever as we are looking at financing a major new attraction. With this in mind Melanie and Chris are producing a cash flow forecast in order to show what our new attraction could potentially bring to the park in the long term, which is crucial when looking at any investment.
“Fully understanding our business accounts and how to manage our funds effectively to benefit the charity is a large task and Gardner’s help enormously with this. They excel at putting accounting terminology into layman’s terms to make everything understandable. They are so easy to communicate with; it makes everything much easier to manage.
“Another advantage of using local accountants is their feel for the micro economic climate. With the amount of experience Gardner’s have in the local area they help us recognise what we have achieved and where we stand in comparison to others, giving us a picture of where we are in the bigger scheme of things.
