Gainsborough Town Council

We followed Shell from her previous firm to Rigel Wolf due to her professionalism and the high standard of work that she provides. She has helped us in many areas of our business – always explaining things clearly and suggesting better working practices.

We have on occasion had to rely on Shell to carry out work for us at short notice and she has never let us down. Shell is extremely knowledgeable in her work and we would not have been able to make some of the financial decisions in our business without her.
