Issue 42: November 2014




Christmas decorations are in the shops and we are already in the throes of planning for the festive season. If you are thinking about presents for beloved children, grandchildren or family members, consider an “event” present (a day out at a place of interest), a restaurant voucher or a gift card towards an amazing holiday. Browse through the Discounts and Benefits Directory and source something that will be of interest to your loved ones. If you are on a limited budget, consider a gift of time and/or companionship which more often than not, is even more valuable than something tangible.
