BBI’s Community Affairs Manager, George Campbell, added “The 12 Days of Christmas has been a fun event for all the staff here at BBI and has allowed us to help charities and the local community where they need it most.

The ’12 Days of Christmas’ event was part of BBI’s ‘me&my community spirit’, the events aim was to make the wishes come true for Isle of Man charities. Charities were invited to ‘send a letter to Santa’ to let him know their Christmas wishes, which ranged from new equipment and extra man power to extra cash.

1.5% Base Rate Cut: The Winners

Today’s unprecedented 1.5 per cent cut in base rate is great news for those with tracker mortgages – and may also bring relief for those on variable rates.

Buy-to-let investors at Young Group’s myBASE1 development in Southwark completed on their purchases earlier this year, the majority taking tracker rate mortgages; many on 3 year deals tracking below the base rate, for example with Birmingham Midshires – part of HBOS – tracking 0.4 per cent below base rate, and thanks to subsequent base rate cuts, are now saving over 50 per cent on their cost of finance.

This translates to a widening in the yield gap on an average £360,000 2 bedroom apartment at the development to 2.4 per cent, providing investors with an additional £650 per month in their pocket.

The death of buy-to-let is something that’s been touted in the press for some time, but looking at the hard facts the picture is far from one of doom and gloom, and the benefits seen by investors at myBASE1 in Southwark, London are being experienced by anyone on a tracker mortgage” pointed out Neil Young, CEO of property portfolio managers Young Group.

LORD MAYOR RECOGNISES WAES STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS

Westminster City Council’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Carolyn Keen, has praised students of Westminster Adult Education Services’ (WAES) for their remarkable achievements in learning at an awards ceremony at Council House on Monday, 21 May 2007.

The awards were presented to the students as part of the annual Adult Learners’ Week celebration and recognise those students who have realised life-long dreams and transformed their lives through learning.

Sahra Ali is just one of the students who received an award on Monday night. Having only arrived from Somalia three years ago, Sahra joined English classes at WAES in September 2006. With no opportunity to attend school in Somalia, this was the first class that Sahra had attended. Sahra has now learnt to say and write alphabet letters and read short familiar words and phrases.

Sahra’s tutor Ruth Lennard said: ‘Sahra has worked extremely hard and made excellent progress as an ESOL Basic Literacy Learner. For beginner students with little English, trying to listen and concentrate in class is extremely tiring and requires a lot of stamina. Sahra has shown a great deal of determination and should be congratulated’.

Donald Lush, Director of Student Support for WAES said: ‘Every person who received an award has a great story to tell. We want everyone, whatever their age or background, to have the opportunity to succeed’.
