The Sunday Slot: The John O’Brien Story
On the 16th January 2002 John’s life changed forever. His son Lee died after inhaling lighter fluid. This is one man’s story in his quest to change the law to make it compulsory for the introduction of test purchasing across Scotland and shopkeepers caught selling lighter fluid to under 18’s are threatened with prosecution. I’ve got to say after talking with John this is a story of perseverance, determination and love for his son that’s driven him forward and I suspect it will be extremely emotional on the day. Join me, Jim Parker for my Sunday Slot @ 10.30am Live. We're open to taking questions while you watch and listen in.

QUESTIONS SURROUNDING SAVING SCHEMES FOR FIFE HOMEOWNERS!
There are so many different saving schemes out there, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which is best for you. A saving scheme is typically a program that is designed to influence saving in a manageable way, commonly offering an interest percentage, depending on who you go with. A popular ISA was the help to buy but this is no longer available. Don’t worry, there are so many other options. For example, a good alternative is a lifetime ISA. https://www.fifeproperties.co.uk/blog/questions-surrounding-saving-schemes-in-fife/ #Finance #ISA #Money #Mortgage #Savings

OK BORIS, WE’RE NOT SHUTTING! What are we doing during the lock down in FIFE?
