Hello, A subject hardly ever out of the news nowadays, I had never heard of as a child or as a young adult. FOOD BANKS. Why do we need food banks? I occasionally volunteer in helping our community food bank in Holbrooks, I'm sure I'm not wasting my time. The WFP, have stated that the last five years have been the worst food growing conditions since the thirties. Yet, the UKs biggest grocery is embarrassed with its latest financial results. A statement for Tesco, Tesco has said price pressures on grocers have eased as it reported bumper sales and profits for the past year. The UK's biggest supermarket chain said pre-tax profits hit £2.3bn, up from £882m, while sales rose by 4.4% to £68.2bn in the year to 24 February. I don't want to comment with my own opinion, rather let the combination of the WFP statement & Tesco profits do the talking. It's very loud!

The supermarkets are gouging the public but some are in trouble because of loans that need to be serviced. I suspect that Morrisons could collapse if organisations like Tesco used their better position to significantly cut prices. The supermarket has already sold its petrol stations and the bakeries are next.

Hello all, As well as the disappointing issues directly affecting our forum, there's hardly any part of the world that is not being devastated as I post this. Warfare in Europe & the Middle East. Floods in Dubai used to be music hall jokes. It's no joke. China & Russia in the headlines of severe flooding. I've been alive long enough to remember worldwide catastrophic events, but never ever on this scale of severity or constancy everywhere. Half way through Spring, I don't know where my watering cans are. That's no joke either. They may have rotted or rusted away. How I want to tell you what I believe, but the rules of our forum (that I fully subscribe to) prohibit that. What I can tell you is by quote. Our Father in Heaven says-; Come into or unto me........ I will give you rest. The events that we are all witnessing are what He describes as "Birth pains". You ladies on here will know all about birth pains, I haven't a clue, other than an observer. Love & God bless to us all.
