It should have been shared earlier (and did FirstPort win anything?):

Dear Ms Crabtree
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AWARDS 2015-16 – FIRSTPORT
In confirmation of our telephone conversation earlier today, I and other flat owners at Lansdowne Court in Hove would like to register a negative vote against FirstPort in the forthcoming round of Property Management Awards 2015-16.
There are 18 flats in Lansdowne Court and not one owner would dream of saying anything good about FirstPort, let alone voting to nominate them for an award of any kind. The service FirstPort provide, beyond the simplest of tasks, is abysmal. It would be a travesty for FirstPort to be awarded anything; indeed, any votes received in favour of FirstPort should be treated with due caution.
I enclose a copy of the Oct 14 Private Eye article about FirstPort and would urge you to go to the website of the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership – http://www.leaseholdknowledge.com – to learn more about the overall dealings of the Company. At the working level, I enclose, as just one simple example, a selection of letters and emails over the last year about the refurbishment/replacement of the front-door at Lansdowne Court; the level of incompetence within the management of FirstPort is staggering.
The reputation of your organisation would be diminished if FirstPort featured as the recipient of an award from News On The Block.
