The Pulse - what's going on in M20

Welcome to the August/ September edition of the Pulse M20.

As always, Didsbury is a hive of activity with the Makers Market at the end of the month, WestFest 15 showcasing the best of West Didsbury's independent businesses on 5th and 6th September, and the unusual 'Have you met Ben?' campaign introducing yours truly to many buyers and sellers in and around Didsbury.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Kind regards,



Didsbury's new man!

I’ve had my face plastered around the village this month, just to make sure that the people of Didsbury know that I’ve arrived here at Julian Wadden!  

A banner is up at the Didsbury Cricket Club on Wilmslow Road, and I’m even bigger on a billboard around the corner from the branch on Whitechapel Street. My poster has also been trailed around Didsbury by bike so I’ve been difficult to miss if you’ve been in the village over the past few weeks!

The campaign is fantastic as I want to integrate with the local communities and it’s a great conversation starter. I’m enthused to be heading up the Didsbury team here at Julian Wadden and it’s always nice to receive a warm welcome.  Julian Wadden is about being big and innovative, so the bold advertising makes a real statement about us as an agency and our passion for M20.

But it’s not all about me. Together with Julian, I’ve handpicked an experienced and friendly new team for the branch. Rachel McKie is my new Assistant Manager who has also worked in Didsbury, with an outstanding record in executing sales to completion efficiently.

Spread the word and feel free to tweet us @JulianWadden when you’ve met us!
