SIX-tea questions - We chat to the Hexagon team over a cuppa
We talk a lot about the Hexagon team and how their personal and professional approach makes all the difference to helping our tenants. So, what better way to get to know them more than our SIX-tea session where we ask them sixty quick fire questions over a cuppa.
