A very popular part of the monthly meetings has been re-introduced. This Is Your Life is in the capable hands of past president Keith Towns who each month will identify a member and dig deep into their past.
This month was the turn of Peter Goodwin. Peter had two main activities. He was for years a leading pig farmer and breeder whilst at the same time producing plastics. Quit while you are ahead would seem to be appropriate to Peter in view of the negative issues now surrounding plastic in general.
The speakers this month were representatives from Franklin Financial Services. They gave a very detailed overview of wide ranging personal finances. These covered wealth planning (for those with plenty) Will making LPAs and Inheritance Tax Planning.
Members were surprised to learn that the 10th largest bank in this country is “The Bank of Mum and Dad” A lot of information was given concerning financial issues and pitfalls involved in the residential care of the elderly.
