Who Can You Trust?

There is an organisation called Who Can You Trust which is a not-for-profit community interest company set up with the sole aim of alerting and advising people in the 55+ age group about the need to be on their guard against internet scammers, doorstep rogues, fake lotteries, ATM fraudsters, rogue builders, dating tricksters and cheque overpayment fraud.

They publish a magazine "Watch Out" in various parts of the country with articles and information about which traders you can trust and which scams to beware of.

You can download the Bucks version of Watch Out here.

Happy Retirement!

Are you enjoying a happy and contented retirement? Is retirement proving to be the happiest chapter of your life? If so, why not write about about it and enter the 'LaterLife Challenge'

The LaterLife Challenge seeks to recognise great examples of how Britain's over 50s are making the most of retirement - in particular, recognising those who are making the most of their retirement (or partial retirement) and are great role models for us all.
