What's happening in Wateringbury
Cost of Living Rising!
COSTING US OUR LIVELIHOOD? It is estimated that the cost of living looks expected to continue to rise this year with stable incomes versus increasing costs of everyday household items. In recent years the cost of living has been as high as 5 times more than wage rises.
Getting On The Property Market
EASIER SAID THAN DONE! The mortgage and property market looks to be improving slightly through better mortgage deals. However the market still lacks direction and combined with lack of incentives for new buyers and government cuts it looks like it could be a while before it rises.
Are You Insured? Are You Covered?
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY! In this day and age it seems as if everyone is trying to sell you insurance for everything such as pet insurance, phone insurance, laptop insurance and tablet insurance.
Keeping Our Local Parks Clean
GET THE MOST OUT OF LOCAL CLEAN UP’s. We all know it is awful when we see parks, beaches and riversides strewn with litter. It is bad for our children, us, our pets, plants, local wildlife and our Wateringbury community.
Council Tax Rises As Councils Set To Save Money
MORE CUTS..... GREAT!!! Many councils across the UK now have the choice to either increase council tax, raise the funds by cutting back on other factors or even worse they do both.
Avoid The Local Cowboys
HOW EASY IS IT TO SPOT A LOCAL COWBOY TRADER? There are numerous reasons why cowboy builders get away with their bad practices and carry on working in the community such as people not asking for verified references, no signed contract, not obtaining at least 3 other quotes to compare, clients naturally go for the cheapest quote and some residents or businesses are impatient and choose not to wait for the best builder.
