Business networking – hellos and goodbyes

It was a big welcome to our newest member, Osteopath, Christina Raven from Your Body in Harmony,   Based in Anerley, Christina specialises in Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy.  We are looking forward to getting to know her.  Sadly, it was also au revior to our nominated charity, Ada & Albert.  It hasn’t been the easiest year for fundraising but it has been great to have them as part of the group and we shall keep in touch with them.

The 10 minutes…

We were delighted to hear from our Accountant, Karen, from Grugeon Reynolds.  Karen gave us a really useful update on a range of changes that have come out of the most recent Budget.  This included the increase to the personal allowance and a 130% capital allowance on qualifying plant and machinery investments for expenditure incurred from 1 April 2021 until the end of March 2023.

Karen explained everything in her usual easy-to-understand way and was also kind enough to answer all our questions.


  • Maria reminded us that The HR Dept can help with recruitment.  From writing adverts to helping with interviews.
