Meet the Team
We have developed a strong management team with highly skilled and motivated support staff.
Throughout our organisation we recognise that our success depends on the effective development of our clients’ businesses.
The best results can only be achieved by good teamwork within our practice and with our clients.
We advise as a team, making the best use of our collective knowledge but with one partner being personally responsible for each client’s affairs.

He now heads our personal tax team with overall responsibility for the management of personal tax client services.

Gill Chivers – Administration Manager
Gill has over 25 years’ experience in administration within accountancy practices.
In addition to being Patrick Lydon’s PA, she manages the firm’s administration department.
Gill is also responsible for the administration of the Company Secretarial function for many of our corporate clients.
Judith has worked for Warings for the last 9 years on a part-time basis. Anything relating to the firm that is not technical is her department. This covers a multitude of things – from managing the website; directing inquiries from the site to the appropriate staff member; to buying important office supplies from the cash-and-carry and organising the office.
Judith is also responsible for promoting the Warings profile in the Bolton and surrounding area through marketing in various media. Warings have many connections both professionally and socially in Bolton and part of Judith’s job is to help increase and enrich these relationships to the benefit of the business and our clients.
Judith also represents Warings and liaises with the charities that we are proud to support e.g. Bolton Hospice, Fortalice, Bolton Lads and Girls Club. Judith also oversees the sponsoring and organisation of events. We have sponsored the annual Ladies Lunch for Bolton Hospice for 8 years. We have also hold a Quiz for Professionals every year. This has become a very successful annual event with over 100 representatives from local banks, solicitors, accountants and businesses coming together to battle for the Warings Charity Trophy.
If you have any queries and don’t know who to speak to, send Judith an email and you will be directed to the appropriate person or department as efficiently as possible.
