Ever felt you’re getting poorer? - read on
The left of centre think tank, resource foundation, has recently produced a report looking into low pay in modern day Britain.
The report looks at trends from 1975 to 2012, and looks at the effect of the financial crisis over the last five years.
There is some evidence to suggest that any historical links between productivity and wage rates are now dis-located. The report questions whether this is a short term effect of the financial crisis or whether there are structural changes occuring in the British Economy, and suggests that the recovery may reinforce these effects.
The report is not the lightest of reads, but female workers and those aged 16 to 30 may find the report interesting. View report at www.tutbury.org/resolution_foundation/low_pay_britain_2013.pdf

Tutbury Open Gardens Expansion


Tutbury Open Gardens group is inviting other volunteer groups in the village to work with us to expand the open gardens weekend into a larger, village festival event on the weekend of 27th and 28th June, 2015.

At our committee meeting, we discussed the idea of including the Open Gardens as part of a pilot Tutbury Festival weekend, rather than as an event on its own. One suggestion was for family-focused activities around the village on the Saturday - such as a craft fair and "making" activities, with proceeds shared with participating groups.



A successful pilot in 2015 could lead the way to making the last weekend in June an annual Tutbury Summer Festival, including Open Gardens.


If that sounds interesting, do please email TOG via info@norris-management.co.uk (Phil) or call Phil on 07931 841085 or Greg on 07852 274656 to chat about the idea.
