New Year’s Resolutions We’re well into the new year but it’s not to late to try something new! There are plenty of opportunities in the local area for you to try something and although we are already well into the year - it’s not too late to make a resolution! Why not commit to giving some of your time to charity by volunteering at a local organisation. The Southend Association of Voluntary Services (SAVS) provides a service matching indivuals to volunteering opportunities. For more details visit www.savs-southend. org or call 01702 356000. Why not start a new hobby or join a group to improve your existing talents. You could try the Southend Art Club where new members are always welcome. The club holds workshops and demonstrations by professional artists on Saturdays at roughly fortnightly intervals throughout the year. Outings to places of interest are also arranged from time to time. For full details visit www.southendartclub.org.uk Why not make a promise to raise money for charity this year. There are a number of local and national charities that would value your support - however small! For example, Havens Hospices have a number of events you can take part in while supporting us with sponsorship. Whether you think you could wadethrough a muddy harbour, take a leap of faith and plunge 10,000 feet in a tandem skydive, or trek across the globe then Havens could have a challenge for you! For more details visit www.havenshospices.org.uk/fund_raising/events. Make a regular date to spend time with your family in the great outdoors. Not only is it free but walking has many health benefits for all ages. Visit www.walk4life.info for some ideas of walks in and around the local area. You can even download the Walk4life app on your phone to record your walking journeys and track your fitness.

Working for the Community

Can you help Re-Home a Dog from Acres Way Kennels? Adopting a Dog

I

f you think you can offer a dog a good home, the first thing you need to do is to go down to the kennels, select a suitable dog you like, take it for a walk and see how you get on. Some people and dogs just don’t get along, so before reserving a dog, the Acres Way staff would need to see if you suit each other. If you have children, or another dog, they recommend that you bring them with you, to make sure that everyone will get on. Once you have visited the dogs, and hopefully found one that matches your lifestyle and expectations, a member of staff will arrange a convenient time for a home check. These are usually carried out within 2

or 3 days of your visit and take about half an hour. Once the home check is complete, you’ll be able to collect your dog. You will need to bring with you some identification showing your current address, and the £130 adoption fee. Their staff will be on hand if you have any questions, and will be able to guide you through the adoption process. All the staff and dogs at Acres Way look forward to seeing you Re-Homing Update Brilliant news – Leo, the 2 year old Lurcher and Fred, the 8 year old Beagle that we featured in our last issue have been successfully re-homed with loving families. They are both settling in well to their new home

Valentine’s Day We often hear people complaining that Valentine’s Day is all just commercial nonsense. However, it’s history goes right back to Ancient Rome so here we take a look at where our customs on this day of romance originate from. person you saw on Valentine’s Day would be your true love forever. There is some dispute as to who St Valentine actually was. There have been at least two and possibly even three St Valentines that have been supposedly martyred on 14th February in different years. Our St Valentine was most probably a third century Roman priest who practised Christianity and performed secret marriages against the direct orders of Emperor Claudius II who thought that single men would be more likely to join his army.

V

alentine’s Day seems to have it’s beginnings way back in Ancient Rome. The Romans loved a party and their annual spring festival - Lupercalia - celebrated fertility and purification rites. It took place on 15th February and included, amongst other things, loud music and near naked youths running through the streets striking women with strips of goatskin. Somewhere around the 4th Century, members of the Christian Church decided that these pagan ceremonies were a little too...er… bawdy, so they initiated the festival of St Valentine’s Day on February 14th. However, in spite of the Church’s best efforts, the pagan customs continued to flourish throughout the centuries. In the 13th Century single women could be “won” in a Valentine lottery. These lotteries continued until way into the 19th Century and even when the tradition ceased, there remained the belief that the first 12

Legend has it that Valentine was arrested and thrown into prison. While he was incarcerated, he befriended the jailers daughter and before he went to execution, he sent her a note signed simply “From Your Valentine.” The first ever valentine card is accredited to Charles Duc D’Orleans who used to send his wife amorous poems and declarations of love from the Tower of London where he was imprisoned after the Battle if Agincourt in 1415. He called them Valentiens. The first modern cards appeared in the 16th Century and were very elaborate, hand made affairs. Red roses have become a symbol of St Valentine’s Day. They have symbolised both heavenly perfection and earthly passion since ancient times. They were first given as a token of love as recently as the 18th Century in imitation of Louis XVI’s romantic gifts to his queen - Marie Antoinette.

Money Guidance Cash - The Highest Risk Investment?

Y

ou may have read this headline in the Sunday Telegraph’s money pages recently? It was an unusually good article that outlined the writers thoughts on inflation. I have covered this in previous articles, but my thoughts now appear to be spreading amongst the financial and adviser community. The published inflation rates seem to significantly underplay the REAL inflation we are all seeing in the price of goods. Interestingly whilst the Government were patting themselves on the back as the Consumer Price Index fell to 2.7% pa last month, they seemed entirely not to spot that the traditional (and in our view more representative of reality), Retail Price Index actually ROSE to 4.1% pa! All of this whilst base interest rates remain at 0.5% and there are hundreds of ‘savings’ accounts and Cash ISA accounts out there paying less than that! Whilst saving or investing in cash does indeed feel like a ‘safe’ thing to do, would you really buy any investment that guaranteed to lose you 10% in REAL terms over the next three years? Because that is what is happening to your cash deposits and ISAs now as the rate of inflation is currently far higher than the returns on your deposit. This gap is now at least as high as it was back in the financially grim 1970s. We believe this period of very low interest rates and relatively high inflation will actually last for many years. Because it has to. The government are spending £42 BILLION pa just on interest! There is so much debt in the economy that they HAVE to keep interest rates down for as long as possible. After a few years the inflation this creates may well enable them to start repaying the debt…….. Not much of an ‘official’ Government policy, but in our view this is the reality of it, whatever they may say about controlling inflation, we are not sure they want it any lower than it is now. For those who wish to try and grow the real value of their savings, it is vital that they are exposed to some risk and invest in the assets that will benefit from inflation in order to try to achieve higher

14

returns. More and more people will have to consider this very seriously. There are other options available, but it is imperative that you seek advice. As many of the banks have pulled out of the ‘advice’ market, where can you turn? At Joseph Lamb we have been running our own investment portfolios for many years. They are available to all, not just the super wealthy. Over the 5 years to the end of October our Low Risk Investment ISA portfolio achieved 5.6% pa. our Medium Risk portfolio, 7.8% pa. Whilst there are advice and some product charges to deduct from these, they are still compelling, and have been achieved with much lower volatility than the majority of our peers. You can see these , and other portfolios in detail on our website www.josephlamb.co.uk, click on Investments and Savings tab, and look at our Portfolio Performance. If you are wary of investing consider this. Premium Bonds are accessible if you need them, tax free and paying on average about 1.3% better than most savings accounts, if you win, but still considerably below inflation. Nonetheless they remain the best home for cash type deposits. It could be an idea that you place enough cash here for say two or three years of expenditure, and the balance is invested in something like our portfolios? This should provide some growth over the near future, and reduce the risk inherent in investing? If this sounds like an idea, or you want a general chat about investing, risk, tax efficient income, or for that matter ANY financial topic you need help with, feel free to contact us. We are in our 43rd year providing Financial Advice. Please look at our client testimonials on our website, after all their opinions matter more than mine! Initial meetings are free and without any obligation. Martin Lamb, Dip.PFS Certs CII (MP & ER) Investments may go down as well as up, Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
