Staff Changes

Adrian Goldring

Spire Solicitors LLP are sad to say goodbye to Adrian Goldring who will be retiring from their Watton office on 29 July following which he and his secretary, Karen Reid, will transfer to the firm’s Dereham office with Adrian finally leaving the firm (and the legal world) at the end of the year.

Adrian joined Greenland Houchen, one of the forerunners of Spire Solicitors LLP, in the October gales in 1987! He has served the local community in Watton and the surrounding area gradually specialising in property and Wills and Probate work since then.

Adrian qualified as a solicitor in January 1980 after serving his Articles (as they used to be known) in Chelmsford and Arundel and worked as an assistant solicitor in Petworth and Storrington before moving with his then young family back to Norfolk.

Adrian’s friendly presence and extensive experience of this area of the Law has been of undoubted benefit over the years to clients and colleagues. That and his unflappable demeanour will be missed by all.

Adrian is looking forward to retirement with his wife, Shirley, who will be leaving her post as Deputy Manager at the Big C Centre in Norwich at the same time. They plan to get out walking on the hills as well as spending more time travelling to catch up with their four sons around the globe, including their three year old granddaughter in Pittsburgh.

Jo Tinson
Jo Tinson

Spire is delighted to welcome Jo Tinson to Watton to take over the running of the office and to continue to provide the Watton community with legal advice and assistance. Jo will continue to be supported by Sheila Edwards and Wendy A’Court.

The Watton office also welcomes Jo’s secretary Jenny Tullis, previously of the Dereham office, together with Julia Fowler.

Jo is an Associate Solicitor with Spire Solicitors LLP and is relocating from the Dereham office where she has worked for the past five years.

Jo started her life in Suffolk and studied a Law Degree at the University of Huddersfield and the Legal Practice Course with BPP in Leeds. Jo returned to Norfolk in 2010 prior to joining the firm. Jo brings the enthusiasm of youth and a sense of humour, as well as an undoubted capacity for hard work and considerable experience in her areas of specialism.
