Cooking Up A Storm
This month the staff at DCS have been giving the bake off contestants a bit of competition, this is to raise as much as we can to support our fellow colleague Angie in her half marathon next month. We raised a great amount of £60 which will go towards Angie’s target amount of £500 for GOSH watch this space next month to see if Angie makes it across the finish line.

This month’s hot topic is April tax changes, will you be better or worse off? As an overview of the new tax changes:
- If you are in a low paid job you may be better off , thanks to generous increases in the National Minimum Wage.
- However if you are responsible for paying Council Tax, your bill is likely to rise sharply.
- Nine million workers will see their pension contributions triple and
- Families on benefits could be more than £300 worse off!
Almost all taxpayers will be better off as a result of changes in income tax he point at which workers start paying tax will rise from £11,500 to £11,850, saving basic-rate taxpayers some £70 a year. The level at which workers start paying higher rate tax (40%) will rise from £45,000 to £46,350, saving them £336 a year, according to the government calculator.
