Our very own Superman, Phillips Director, Jonathan Pender is heading off to Cologne in Germany on Wednesday morning.

He is a member of the 30 strong Ark Riders team who over five days will cycle from Basingstoke to Cologne to raise much needed funds for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity that is to be built in the grounds of Basingstoke hospital.

Among the stops they will make on their epic Ark Riders Twin Towns Tour (TTT) will be two of Basingstoke’s twin towns, Braine-l’Alleud in Belgium and Euskirchen in Germany.

The Ark Cancer Centre Charity is raising £5m to help fund a much-needed NHS cancer treatment centre that will largely be funded by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. So far, the charity has raised more than £2m.

The centre will integrate conventional and supportive cancer care for people in and around the Basingstoke area.

Help to Buy ISA

It can be a real challenge to get onto the property ladder, but there is help on hand with a Help to Buy (ISA).

This is a high-interest savings account available for people buying their first property and is available at most high street banks and building societies.

You can earn up to 2.53% interest tax-free and then the Government will add 25% free cash on top of what you save providing you and the property you purchase meet the qualifying criteria

You will need to make an initial deposit of £1,000. After that you can deposit a maximum of £200 a month.

The ISA can be used for a property with a full market value of up to £250,000 or up to £450,000 in London.

However, the Government has set a closing date for new applications of November 30, 2019, so please do not delay in taking advantage of this scheme.

Provided you open your Help to Buy ISA before then you can keep saving until 2029.

Zoë Baxter who heads the Residential property team at Phillips Solicitor is experienced in advising Help to Buy clients, completing first-time property and shared ownership transactions.

The beautiful weather on Friday helped made Ark Day a great success.

Phillips was among many local businesses, schools and organisations that took part in a variety of activities on what was the longest day of the year.

Our fundraising activity was for the whole office to enjoy the sunshine and walk 1 km around beautiful War Memorial Park.

It proved to be a very pleasant stroll and a great bonding activity. We must do this more often!

More importantly it was to help raise awareness and some money for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The charity is raising £5m to help fund a much-needed NHS cancer treatment centre that will largely be funded by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at Basingstoke hospital. So far, the charity has raised more than £2m. Ark Day will be one of the charity’s key fundraising events this year.

Thank you Harry Pamely from the Basingstoke Gazette for popping along to take our photo just before we set off for our walk.

The Gazette promoted a live blog of the day on Twitter - @ArkDayUK

Also on offer are food stalls, Punch and Judy and the Mucky Bucket petting farm.

All of the fun can be found in Castle Field, in Fairfields Road, Basingstoke RG21 3DR.

There is free parking and entry is free.

The two day event, running from June 22 to June 23, is open from 11am to 4pm and is organised by the Rotary Club of Basingstoke, who are raising funds for Sebastian’s Action Trust.

We’ve signed up to take part in Ark Day on Friday June 21 – which happens to be the longest day of the year.

Ark Day is a 24-hour FUNraising campaign with the aim of raising as much money as possible for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The charity is looking for £5 million to go towards a cancer treatment centre that will be built by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) at Basingstoke hospital.

The day will see local schools, businesses and community organisations take part in various activities throughout the day.

As can be seen in today’s Basingstoke Gazette, page 13, colleagues from Phillips will walk 1km around War Memorial Park as part of the fundraising drive.

Phillips director Jack Gardener, who is expecting the whole office to take part, said: “We sponsor the Basingstoke Half Marathon so we thought we should do something fit and healthy with everyone together.”

“Hopefully it will be a nice day and we can all go together and have a chat and raise some money for an important charity.”

This past weekend certainly proved to be a rather cultured one for Phillips.

On Saturday we were fortunate to attend The Chairman of Hampshire County Council’s Concert at the magnificent Winchester Cathedral.

Cllr Elaine Still, marked the coming to the end of her term as chairman with a spring concert celebrating the best and most talented of Hampshire's young musicians - Basingstoke Area Youth Orchestra and Hampshire County Youth Orchestra.

Among those sitting in the front row alongside the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire Nigel Atkinson and Cllr Still was Phillips director Max Hope.

The programme included Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Gabriel's Oboe.

On Sunday it was Basingstoke Music and Arts Festival’s Gala Performance held at Queen Mary's College in Basingstoke.

Among the performers were the Basingstoke Area Youth String Orchestra and St Mary's School Orchestra from Old Basing.

Most of the performers on Sunday were incredibly talented school children – they were fantastic.

We were delighted to support both events as sponsors.

Phillips Solicitors have teamed up with Basingstoke Together Business Improvement District to offer a new networking group in Basingstoke.

The recently launched group is called Stoking Ambition and is aimed at those in their thirties and younger to attract the future generation of business leaders.

The informal group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month at the Duck and Tipple in Wote Street, in Basingstoke’s Top of The Town.

It is hoped that this new networking experience will provide a relaxed setting for business owners and professionals to meet without any hard selling.

Jack Gardener, who is a director at Phillips Solicitors, was joined by Wills and Probate solicitor Sian Lias. He was delighted with the group’s inaugural meeting, which attracted around 25 people, from across Basingstoke.

Among those who attended was Jack Little from LMW chartered accountants and George Scott-Welsh from business incubator and co-working space IncuHive.

Jack said: “One of the reasons we set up this group was that Basingstoke lacked an obvious way for young professionals to get to know one another on an informal basis.

“I was very pleased with the success of our first meeting where we were able to meet like-minded people over a drink and I’m looking forward to our next meeting.”

The next meeting is set to take place on Wednesday April 17, at the Duck and Tipple, starting at 5.30pm.

If you would like to attend the meeting or would like some more information, please get in touch by emailing [email protected]

09/04/2019

Divorcing couples will no longer have to blame each other for the breakdown of their marriage thanks to a new law announced by the government.

The Family Law team at Phillips welcome today’s announcement from the Justice Secretary David Gauke who said the aim of the new law is to help reduce family conflict.

The move follows a 12-week public consultation which showed widespread support for no-fault divorce.

New legislation will be introduced to Parliament to update the current 50-year-old divorce law which has been shown to exacerbate conflict, working against any prospect of reconciliation as well as being damaging to children by undermining the relationship between parents.

Welcoming the much-needed changes, Hayley Eachus, who is a family law specialist at Phillips Solicitors, said: “The news will help move family law in this country into the 21st Century.”

“The change will mean that separating couples will no longer have to apportion blame for marriage breakdown, which can be very painful not only for the separating couple, but also for their children and wider family."

If you are considering divorcing or separating from your partner, whether you are married or not, please do not hesitate to contact Hayley by calling 01256 854633 or by emailing [email protected]

Hugging in the workplace has been a hot topic in the news recently.

This includes news about Ray Kelvin, the founder and chief executive of the fashion chain Ted Baker, who was has been accused of misconduct including “forced hugging.”

Mr Kelvin denies all allegations of misconduct, but he has resigned from Ted Baker.

The case raises the question as to when physical contact such as hugging is acceptable and when it becomes unacceptable behaviour? What are the boundaries when it comes to physical contact in the workplace?

Gill Brown head of the Employment Law team at Phillips offers some advice in her article which can be found on our website www.phillips-law.co.uk/news-and-events/hugging-in-the-workplace

Gill is happy to assist you with any aspect of employment law. For advice please contact Gill Brown on 01256 854605 or email [email protected]

Many workers received a pay boost on April 1 with the National Living Wage being increased by almost 5%.

The National Living Wage is the amount of money most employees aged over 25 are entitled to by law.

Until 2016 it used to be known as the National Minimum Wage.

The hourly rate for adults age 25 and over went up from £7.83 to £8.21 an hour.

Still known as the National Minimum Wage, the hourly rate for 21 to 24-year-olds went from £7.38 to £7.70 an hour, and from £5.90 to £6.15 an hour for 18 to 20-year-olds.

Those under 18 receive £4.35 an hour, while the Apprentice rate is £3.90 an hour.

Anyone who thinks they are not receiving the National Living Wage or National Minimum Wage should complain to their employer in the first instance.

If you have any concerns about pay please contact Gill Brown, head of the Employment team at Phillips by emailing [email protected] or by calling 01256 854605.
