CAB aiming to help and Holland Park to Ladbroke Grove

Earlier in the week I went to a Money Fair event as part of a CAB presence, it's a great shame that such events are not able to positively engage with the people who would benefit most from them - some people there do seem to realise this but for others it's accepted as the norm.

Plenty of professionals there but not so many 'service users'.

I tend to think that what needs to be done is a McDonald-isation of such services,this is not meant to be derisory, McDonald's (to my mind) are an example of providing a service that the market wants and needs.

Show what you offer and train the people delivering/helping.

Why is that when we try to help people we use unpleasant premises with non-professional levels of service?

Worthy people and motives alone are not enough to help people an entrepreneurial vigour and spark is needed.

2) House where  Howard Staunton a great British Chess Player lived .
Not forgotten

A nice house in West London with a  blue plaque to ....
