Getting Involved In The Community
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNITY? Despite the economic downturn in recent years we have seen it has really raised the local people of the communities’ spirits and brought a feeling of togetherness.
Scams On The Rise
KEEPING YOU ON YOUR TOES! It is important to keep up to date and on your toes when it comes to local fraud and scams. There are so many currently out there it is important you are aware of the more common and frequent ones.
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.
Avoiding Payday Loans
AVOIDING THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL. In the beginning everyone thought these payday loan lenders where all doing us a favour and it sounds so simple borrow a little bit of money just before your payday and then pay back on your payday.
Will Online Shopping Be The Death Of Our High Streets
ARE YOU AN ONLINE SHOPPER AND A BARGAIN SURFER? We do not know to what extent the increasing activity of online shopping will eventually have on our Stroud based high street retailers but some predict it may end the high street shopping as a whole in the future.
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.
