What's happening in Westminster
Community Clean Up
BRUSHES AND MOPS AT THE READY! Many members of our community make their mark on our local streets by joining various local Westminster cleaning initiatives throughout the community in a bid to keep our parks, streets, roads and pavements looking clean and look after.
Push For Local Apprenticeships
INVESTING IN THE LOCAL WORKFORCE. The Westminster council and government have tried many initiatives over the years, one being local apprenticeships.
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.
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.
What Is Next For Our Local Public House
THERE IS NOTHING WORNG WITH A GOOD LOCAL. It is no secret that our local pubs have suffered in the last decade due to numerous factors such changing nightlife trends (Bars and Clubs), the recession (meaning people have less to spend), alcohol awareness campaigns, the general costs of ale and rent and increases in government tax’s on alcoholic beverages.
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.
