What's happening in Durham
Avoid Your Home Flooding
BE PREPARED OR AT LEAST HAVE YOUR ARM BANDS READY. Flooding can be devastating for home owners but some simple tips could prevent heartbreaking and costly repairs. It is important that you understand about your property and local areas, so you can be aware of any potential flooding problems in the future.
Push For Local Apprenticeships
INVESTING IN THE LOCAL WORKFORCE. The Durham council and government have tried many initiatives over the years, one being local apprenticeships.
Getting Involved In The Community
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNITY? Despite the economic downturn in recent years we have seen it has really raised the local people of the communities’ spirits and brought a feeling of togetherness.
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.
Keeping Our Local Parks Clean
GET THE MOST OUT OF LOCAL CLEAN UP’s. We all know it is awful when we see parks, beaches and riversides strewn with litter. It is bad for our children, us, our pets, plants, local wildlife and our Durham community.
Council Tax Rises As Councils Set To Save Money
MORE CUTS..... GREAT!!! Many councils across the UK now have the choice to either increase council tax, raise the funds by cutting back on other factors or even worse they do both.
