About us


After 30 years in commerce, Peter ventured out as a sole practitioner accountant in 2017 – giving him the flexibility for school runs for Georgia his grand-daughter – and to walk Leah their Labrador/Alsatian rescue dog. He is a Director of Buy Local, an organisation which encourages people to support and buy from local independent businesses, as well as a Director for Eastern Landlords which ties in with the small rental portfolio built up over the years. He is Treasurer for Shine – a charity in Yarmouth providing nursery and day care for children with special needs since 2010. He is also a keen cyclist, who can be often found at rock concerts of increasingly aged bands – all of which doesn’t leave much time with his wife Emma!

I began working life in an agricultural accounts department before embarking on a career in the Civil Service as a Senior Procurement and Contract specialist. After a career break for my 2 children, I decided to study AAT, and then joined Abacus which I thoroughly enjoy and has provided me with a wealth of experience alongside my studies! As a local farmer's wife, playing pool at County level (and previously represented England which was a great honour I hope to achieve again some day), being a School Governor, and taking the children to carious activities I am exhausted each day.


Living in Poringland with my partner, three children, a dog and two spoilt bunnies. After working for HMSO as a customer service agent then as credit control officer in the finance department, I was fortunate to be a stay at home Mum for many years while running our family run carpet cleaning business, and now enjoy working at Abacus with the wide range of clients and love a challenge. I enjoy being a parent rep for the CCAA Norfolk & Suffolk Charity, working with NNUH to support families with children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), a role that involves being the voice of the families affected, supporting their journey, and being a positive role model.
