Further Interest Rate Increase
As expected, the Reserve Bank increased the cash base rate by .25% (the fourth this year), inevitably resulting in a further increase to the interest rates we will all pay. Increases to mortgage repayments, loans etc and the flow through effect to other products must be hitting household's net income.

These sobering statistics don’t make for easy reading. And with so many challenges to face, women living in some of the world’s poorest communities certainly have a fight on their hands. This is why we're working hard every day, helping women to turn their lives around and build a future free from poverty.

Hi everyone, just thought I'd take a moment to welcome our newest likers, hi there :)
We've rocketed to 251 in such a short spell. When we hit 300 we will do another giveaway, I'm sure it won't take long if you send your friends by. I'll draw it from all our likers, it won't be the 300th liker as I don't think that's fair on our existing likers, especially our longest standing.

Don and Marie about ‘to take it easy.’

Don and Marie Adams have been running ‘Take it Easy’ tours for 26 years and have decided to take it easy themselves. The business has been sold to Jason Granville and Jimmy Elliott. Don will do a bit of driving as required and Marie some tour guiding but it is off to a more relaxed way of life for their retirement. Karlene Wagstaff, who has been their invaluable administrator, will work for the new owners.
