Based in Weston-super-Mare, Portishead and Winscombe
Brooking Ruse was formed when Norman Brooking left the Bristol based firm of Wormald Brooking in 1984 to join Brian Ruse. Brian was managing the Weston office established when Wormald Brooking acquired the firm of Watts & Ellison which had been an ever-present in the local area since 1948.
Norman and Brian had considerable knowledge of the local area having run ever 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 heavily involved in the local community sponsoring local football, cricket and rugby teams whilst supporting the local arts. Brooking Ruse happily continues these longstanding 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 to Robbie Orr, Les Cox, Michael Paphitis, Ian Thomas and Lizzie Knight.
In 2008 the firm acquired the established general accountancy practice of Dingley Brown based in Portishead and continued its expansion in 2014 with the acquisition of Mendip Vale Accountants, in Winscombe, retaining both staff and premises to give continuity of service.
The Weston-super-Mare office was moved to its new location at 2 Stafford Place in 2015 leaving its Beaconsfield Road office after 31 years. The new premises offer a modern working environment for our staff and clients together with the convenience of off-street parking.
Brooking Ruse continues to invest in staff and resources enabling the provision of an efficient and cost effective service and looks forward to continued growth.
Any member of the team will be happy to talk to you if you think we can help.
