Questa Chartered is a local financial planning company based on Whitehills business Park by the M55. We manage investments in excess of £250M on behalf of clients, specialising in all areas including investments, retirement income planning, inheritance estate tax planning, trust work, investments on behalf of deputies mortgages

Directors Anthony Hoskisson and Stuart Dewin, former pupils of Arnold and King Edward Schools respectively, are entwined in the local community with Stuart being on the local board of the YMCA and member of Fairhaven Golf Club and Fylde RFC and Anthony being a governor at AKS as well as a member of Fylde RFC, Lytham Cricket Club and Fairhaven Golf Club.

Currently we employ several former pupils of the founding schools of AKS as well as past and present players of Fylde.  My association with the Club goes back to 1956 when my father Rodney  played his first game for the Club, playing for the 1st XV in 1958 and still regularly meets for lunch on a Saturday with 5 or 6 other 1st XV players prior to coming to the Woodlands.. I was in attendance at the first ever Mini-Junior rugby Sunday morning session in about 1973.

I often tell people I’ve been a member of the Club all my life. I captained the Colts in 1983, played for all teams apart from 1st team, benched once as no one else would go to Nuneaton on a cold winter’s day. Brother Gary played throughout MJ’s and for all teams in the Club including the 1st XV. Son Oliver currently plays for the under 12’s having started when he was 6. Mother was on Ladies Committee etc.

It goes without saying that it’s great to be able to support the Club after our family’s long association and with so many great memories.
