The Macmillan coffee morning

I was pleased to join the Macmillan cancer fund raising coffee morning on Friday. I was invited by the Wokingham Barclays Bank to try their home made cakes and coffee in a good cause.

I would like to say a big thank you to all who held such events and helped raise money for Macmillan. In Barclays there were some very tasty and professional looking home made cakes, and a good flow of people to enjoy them and make a contribution.

I also had an opportunity to say hello to many of the staff, to see behind the scenes, and hear a bit more about one of our local banks. They assured me they do have money to lend for business and house purchase.

    Do EU rules allow you so cavalierly to eat and talk about home made cakes in this way? Would have thought that at least half a dozen rules would be broken from Health and Safety to Liability for Currants going down the wrong way.

    The ‘problem’ of course being that they have learned their lesson from the recent fiasco of lax lending rules and insist on only lending to people who will actually be able to pay the loan back in future. Clearly, we need another government-owned bank to provide loans to all those other people who would like them but can’t afford to repay…
