AN INERESTING READ REGARDING THE SMALLS... 02/08/2007
ONE OF THE FIRST OWNERS OF A NEW ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM DROPHEAD COUPE CAR DRIVES AWAY FROM CLIVEDEN HOUSE AT A SPECIAL PREVIEW EVENT.
Barbara and Jeff Small from the West Country made it a family occasion when they joined Roll-Royce Motor Cars of Sunningdale for a celebration lunch at Cliveden House, before driving away in their new Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.
Children and grandchildren joined Barbara and Jeff at Cliveden where appalling weather conditions couldn't dampen their enthusiasm for the magnificent car.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Sunningdale unveiled the new Phantom Drophead Coupe, for the first time in the Home Counties, at the unique Cliveden House in Berkshire. A hotel with a history steeped in dedication to the pursuit of pleasure and power, with architectural extravagance and remarkable refinement.
The two-door, four seater convertible car combines the latest in lightweight engineering technology with the finest hand-crafted materials. Each car is individually built by highly skilled craftsmen and women at the company's world headquarters in Goodwood, on the south coast of England. The previes event continued into the afternoon with a superb Cliveden House afternoon tea served. More than thirty people were given the opportunity ti experience the luxury, drive the car and marvel at the Rolls-Royce engineer's skill and imagination in presenting a glorious convertible car. in the tradition of Rolls-Royce, with ground breaking, world-class design features and engineering.
The coach doors, brushed stainless steel bonnet and teak tonneau cover set an impressive design first in motoring. Under the bonnet is the impressive 6.75 litre V12 engine found in the Phantom saloon, refined power and superb handling.
Christine Clarkin, Franchise Manager for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Sunningdale said "Barbara and Jeff Small and a significant number of people had the early vision and faith in this car, from the experimental stage of the 100EX, which has ensured the Phantom Drophead Coupe is now a limited production car. We were confident that this car would exceed their wildext expectations and fufil a passion for motoring perfection.
Presumably a retained asset of Jeffrey Small Snr with a list price believed to be of £330,000, the creditors of J & B Small Park Homes may wish to establish, if still owned by them whether the enforced sale of this vehicle will assist toward the recovery of their long term debts and if not from the sale of this or similar assets, from others including the proceeds of Mr Smalls home in Somerset, recently advertised for sale at offers in excess of £3.5 million.
Creditors should aso be asking how it is that Mr & Mrs Small, as advised to a Court last week, are able to fund their now planned two month holiday (historically in the USA) whilst leaving their creditors behind to sing for their money or in the hands of Jeffrey Small Jnr, who not long ago informed Bailiffs at his home that he was unable to pay costs and damages awarded against them by the Courts, other than by monthly installments.
In unusual circumstances, the accrued assest of an equal partnership between three persons trading under different names and also collectively would not be of legitimate interest, but when such assets are retained on the backs of other peoples money and in circumstances where extravagances are funded by refusals to meet the majority of the Terms of their contracts, with residents across many counties sho have collectively paid multi millions of pounds for their homes and are left in deliberate squalor, then everyone, including their creditors, Her Majesties Revenue and Customs and other agencies are fully entitled to ask these same questions, especially when substantial monies owed to come creditors are those that have already been collected from residens but are not now apparently available to them.
