Royston and Lund will be taking part in raising money for Children in Need this Friday 17th November, all of which will be done in the comfort of their pyjama’s!

BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to put on events supporting the Appeal. 

A day of fundraising is being planned; the staff will be taking part in a ‘bake-off’ as well as donating £3 each to wear their pyjama’s all day! All support is welcome from members of the public where the culinary delights of the staff members will be offered for sale, the more the merrier to help raise any funds!

Speaking of their plans, Val Shakespeare said: “It should certainly make for an unusual day in the office with the staff all in their pyjamas! We had a great response from our Children In Need fundraising day last year when we managed to raise almost £700 and we’d love to be able to get close to that again so please do dig deep if you can! It’s a fantastic feeling to know we’re helping raise money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”

Would you pay an estate agent NOT to sell your home?

It might sound like an absurd question, but there are plenty of companies ready to market your home for an upfront fee without offering any guarantees for your money.  We aren’t one of them.

We won’t ask for money and then sit back and relax: ‘no sale, no fee’, that’s our guarantee to you.  Our fees reflect the time and attention we put into you and your property to secure the right result for you.  You don’t pay us until we successfully sell your home, because we think that’s fair/

Get in touch with us today to see exactly what we can do for you.

British parents are prepared to do whatever it takes to get their children into a new school, including moving into a new home, according to a recent study by Santander.

One in four parents with school age children said they had either bought a new home or rented one in order to be in their desired school’s catchment area, with an additional 20% saying they were forced to change jobs. 44% of those asked said they would leave the area once their child had finished school.

Anyone who has tried to register their child for a new school will know how competitive it can be if the school has a good OFSTED rating and is well-regarded in your local area. Parents are willing to do whatever it takes to secure their child a spot.

Whilst this might seem like a big step to take – especially in terms of cost – the only other option is educating your child privately, which carries a considerably higher price tag.

The demand for property within the catchment areas of sought-after schools means existing homeowners and those who are only choosing to move to the area temporarily can charge a significant premium should they decide to sell.

Half of those who made the move said they sold their home and purchased a new one, 30% said they bought a second home and 19% chose to rent.

The average premium added to the price of a London property in a good catchment area was a shocking £81,800, followed by those in the south east and east which both commanded just under £29,000.

Northern Ireland is the cheapest location for making a catchment move, with those properties worth £6,400, while parents in Wales paid an extra £12,100 and those in Yorkshire paid £15,800.
