Whether it's risking a burned tongue because you can't wait for the day's first coffee, or sending money to someone you haven't met to win money on a lottery you haven't entered, risk is an important part of life.
The skill comes in knowing what the risk is, what the rewards are if it goes well, and the penalties if it doesn't.

Hands up, who enjoys visiting their accountant? No, thought not. It's right up there with looking at other people's holiday snaps and taking the kids shopping for school uniforms.

We’d like to send out a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who made a donation to our JustGiving page for the charity ‘Rounders Tournament’ that we took part in recently for Breast Cancer Campaign’s, ‘Wear It Pink’ fundraising campaign.
With your generosity and support we raised a total of £255.00 for the charity, which will help go towards further research to help find a cure for cancer.
So how did we get on? Well pretty good actually! We went head to head with a number of other local businesses and we won two games, drew one, and lost one to overall tournament winners, Milken Travel.
