Jordan’s Solicitors take Community Support and Corporate Social Responsibility seriously. We believe that as a firm we have a responsibility to make a positive difference to our clients and the places where we have a presence which means that we are passionate about supporting local communities. We are pleased to be a sponsor of The Hepworth Wakefield and to participate in the Wakefield Artwalk.
We have been a participant in the Wakefield Artwalk since its inception welcoming a range of artists to display their artwork in our Wakefield office. The Wakefield Artwalk takes place every two months on the last Wednesday of the month. We showcase the artwork between 5pm – 8pm and feature a different artist on each event. Our doors are open for anyone to view the artwork and further information about the Wakefield Artwalk can be found here.
This year is also the 10th anniversary of the event.
We are currently in the process of becoming a dementia friendly firm and are working with Dementia Champions to train as many members of our staff into Dementia Friends.
Our Horsforth office supports the Dementia Friendly Community scheme run by Horsforth Town Council which aims to raise awareness of the condition and provide support to people living with dementia in Horsforth.
A dementia-friendly community is a city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported and confident they can contribute to community life.

About my work;
I make 2-dimensional work with lines. The images I make are of cities, I draw and re-draw cities.
I am interested in seeing the patterns humans make on the planet from different distances. I change the scale of buildings. I am interested in how far these patterns reach in time and space. Do human structures have any effect on nature, on animals, the weather and climate. Does the human pattern of building have any impact on the past or the future?
Composition for me is a mathematical presence in the arrangement of the lines. The speed and tension in the lines picks up on sounds and movement.
We are sponsoring a beer barrel at the Horsforth Hall Park Cricket Club’s beer festival over the Easter Weekend 30th March –1st April, from 12 noon –11pm.
If anyone wishes to attend the event, entry to the Beer Festival is free. If you want to sample the real ales and cider the cost is £10, which includes a commemorative pint glass, 4 x ½ pint drinks vouchers, a programme and a list of the beers.
