CASH met Tony Pidgley on three occasions and had honest and frank conversations with him but sadly this did not result in the company taking action to protect the health and well-being of residents. RIP Tony Pidgley.

Deeply shocked & saddened to hear of the death of Tony Pidgley Snr today. The industry has lost one of its greats. The first 2 times he called the market, I called it luck, but 3rd time around realised it was genius. He’ll be greatly missed #TonyPidgley #Berkeley @BerkeleyGroupUK
