Where would be be without the post office? It’s the centre of so many communities, and in times gone by we did everything from picking up pensions to taxing the car there. But times change. Car tax is done online.
There’s been a lot of coverage in the press about the goings-on in the charity sector. Charities can’t assume that everyone applying for a charity job is doing so with the best intentions. DBS checks may apply to people applying to work in the charity.
