Summer In February, a film of the true story of the pre-First Wold War love triangle involving Sir Alfred Munnings, one of Britain’s most sought-after equine artists, goes on general release on Friday.
It has a lot of things going for it; it is superbly acted, with Dominic Cooper as the talented young ‘AJ’ Munnings, the star of the Edwardian young artists’ colony in Cornwall, and Dan Stevens (Matthew Cawley inDownton Abbey) as his friend and subsequent love rival, Gilbert Evans.
ANTHONY WARD-THOMAS is the owner of one of Britain’s most exclusive removal companies, catering to the likes of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who left Lambeth Palace last month.
Ward-Thomas set up the firm that bears his name in west London in 1985, paying £500 for a deposit on a delivery van. He now has 95 lorries and 300 employees, turning over £15m a year.
Customers have included Boris Johnson, mayor of London, and the actors Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom. The company also delivers for Sotheby’s and Bonhams, the auction houses.
Anthony Ward Thomas set up master removals firm Ward Thomas after hiring a removals firm to move his own belongings and finding that the removals men tried on his clothes and stole his shoes. He started by putting down a £500 cash deposit on his first truck at an auction back in 1985; now he has 95 trucks on the road and the business turns over £15m per annum. He bought rival firm Aussie Man & Van out of administration earlier this year.
