Record quarter breaks £1m sales as gavel falls on 2022

RICHARD Winterton Auctioneers has announced a record quarter as the gavel comes down on 2022.

Richard thanked the family firm’s ‘dedicated’ staff for their work throughout the year, which ends with news of both a record November and a record final quarter breaking £1,000,000 in sales.

“All this doesn’t happen by magic,” the auctioneer said.

“A remarkable amount of work goes into everything we do and the level of care and attention shown by everyone in the business never ceases to impress me.

“Thank you to our fantastic staff for all their hard work and wonderful dedication.”

The Winterton family has been auctioneering in Staffordshire for seven generations across since 1864 and 2022 has seen more milestones achieved.

As well as auctioneering, Richard has notched up a remarkable 766 visits across the country throughout 2022 for all types of clearance valuations.

The firm also continued as headline sponsor for both Staffordshire’s Best Kept Village Community Competition and Lichfield Cathedral’s Christmas illuminations.
