We asked our residents for advice that they wished to share with the younger generation. We think there are some real nuggets of wisdom here.
Mr B says

On money matters
You shouldn’t get too many hand outs. You need to learn to stand on your own two feet
Mrs F says on money matters
If any of her friends’ children got into money trouble, she’d help them out once
Mr D says on money matters
He would like to know how they got themselves into debt and would then work out a plan how to get back in the black
