Vets snap up historic clinic

Have your say

Vets Willem Schaper and Giles Bramwell have acquired the century old Bakewell Veterinarian Clinic with backing from HSBC’s Commercial Banking team in South Yorkshire.

The Clinic caters for both large and small animals in an area covering the Peak District, Bakewell and the Hope Valley and has a specialist equine centre on Buxton Road, Bakewell.

Willem Schaper praised the bank and senior commercial manager Chris Alsop for being proactive and demonstrating great understanding of their business.

HSBC’s Regional Commercial Director for Yorkshire, Mark Vines, said: “Bakewell Veterinary Clinic is an integral part of the Bakewell community and has grown in strength since it was established over 100 years ago.

“The buyout marks the start of a new phase for the clinic and is a great example of our ongoing commitment to support quality businesses with strong management teams and a clear vision.”
