Established Firm Of Accountants Based In Weston-super-Mare, Portishead and Winscombe
Brooking Ruse was formed in 1984 by Norman Brooking and Brian Ruse, having previously taken over the firm of Watts & Ellison, established in Weston-super-Mare in 1948.
Norman and Brian had gained considerable experience of the local area and ran increasing portfolios of clients. The partnership quickly established itself and grew steadily in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Both Norman and Brian were involved in the local community supporting and sponsoring local football, cricket and rugby teams and Brooking Ruse are happy to continue these associations.
Following Norman’s retirement in 2004, the partnership incorporated into Brooking, Ruse & Co. Limited. Brian retired in 2010 leaving the management of the firm of Robbie Orr, Les Cox, Michael Paphitis, Ian Thomas and Lizzie Knight.
In 2008 the firm acquired an established general accountancy practice based in Portishead and continued its expansion in 2014 with a second acquisition of a practice in Winscombe, retaining both staff and premises to give continuity to our new and existing clients.
The Weston-super-Mare office moved to its new location at 2 Stafford Place leaving its origional location in Beaconsfield Road after 31 years. The new premises offers a modern working environment for our staff and a pleasent setting for our clients together with the convenience of off street parking.
Brooking, Ruse continues to invest in staff and resources to enable us to provide an efficient and cost effective service to all our clients and we look forward to continued growth.
Any of our team will be happy to talk to you if you think we can help.
