Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea – BE in the Community

“St Chad’s C of E First School in Pattingham is an award winning First School in the heart of Pattingham village.

The school have an active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) who raise funds to support the children’s learning in school in a variety of ways which bring the school and wider community together.

Children were able to invite one, or more, family members to an Afternoon Tea to show their appreciation in time for Mothers’ Day.

The PTFA made a selection of cheese and ham sandwiches, and baked cakes in preparation for the afternoon.

A small group of volunteer Dads, including Bruce, were on hand to serve the families which made for a relaxing atmosphere, greatly appreciated by those who attended. Vintage china and bunches of daffodils made for a lovely scene and the event raised a wonderful £152.”

   

   

Halifax House Price Index for January

House price growth hit a six-month low last month to 2.2%, Halifax figures show.

The latest Halifax House Price Index for January showed annual growth declined from 2.7% in December 2017, the lowest rate since July last year.

It was also the second consecutive monthly drop, with figures again down 0.6%.

The Index put average prices at £223,285 for January, which is still 1.9% higher than the same period last year.

Russell Galley, managing director of Halifax Community Bank, said: “Although employment levels grew by 102,000 in the three months to November, household finances are still under pressure as consumer prices continue to grow faster than wages.

“Additionally, it’s still too early to see any impact for first-time buyers from the abolition of Stamp Duty on purchases of up to £300,000, which was announced in the November Budget.

“Despite the recent rise in the Bank of England base rate, mortgage rates are still very low.

This, combined with an ongoing acute shortage of properties for sale, will continue to underpin house prices over the coming months.”

Compton Hospice

Our first BE in the Community volunteering day for 2018 took us to Compton Hospice’s superstore in the centre of Wolverhampton. The four members of staff on the day included Andy, Emily, Sarah and I – all geared up ready to assist in any way possible.

Ed Blackwell, manager of Garrick Street, welcomed us and proceeded with a tour of the extensive superstore with all aspects of Compton Hospice being covered.

On the day Emily worked on the till working very well with other volunteers whilst Sarah was on the shop floor keeping all items in order whilst assisting with shoppers. Andy and I helped with the furniture side of the store, generally moving sold items to the collection area and re-arranging existing sale items, allowing for more space on the shop floor.

“At Compton we are lucky to have over 850 volunteers aged from 16 to 90 years old who give up their time to support us, just like yourselves, and as a result this helps us to save over £1million every year in running costs, ensuring that donations go that extra mile. As a result so we are so grateful for your support and hope to welcome you back in the future to find out more about the work of the hospice and how your support helps us.”
