  3. Hopefully good news for Gym members at LA Fitness and Dave Whelan Sports (DWS) and those with other gyms whose Admin is handled by Harlands :- These gyms have agreed to make cancellations easier for folks when their circumstances change. See The OFT report here - http://www.oft.gov.uk/news-and-updates/press/2013/62-13 Extract from The OFT press release on 10th September :- The undertakings to the OFT from LA Fitness, DWS and Harlands Group include: * Extended rights for members to cancel their contracts early should their circumstances change in a way that makes attendance at the gym difficult or unaffordable - for example if they lose their job or suffer an injury * A commitment not to describe membership as being of a fixed duration, if the contract automatically continues on a rolling basis after the initial membership period has expired * Greater transparency about key membership features, including initial membership periods and cancellation rights, and for these to be provided upfront as part of the sales process. It will be interesting to see how well the gyms or gym admin Co's stick to the new undertakings. This is in addition to the agreement that The OFT reached earlier this year with Bannatyne Fitness Limited, David Lloyd Leisure Limited and Fitness First Clubs Limited, to change their contract terms.

  9. More than one in two people would switch to the "Bank of Dave" – the enterprise set up by David Fishwick, a Burnley businessman, to sideline the big lenders. Mr Fishwick wanted to offer an alternative to Britain's scandal-hit big banks but faced problems getting a banking licence from the regulator. He promised customers 5pc interest on their savings, using the deposits to lend to local people struggling to secure loans from the established lenders. But in the absence of a banking licence he was forced to lend his own money. According to a survey by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, 52pc of people would be happy to bank with Dave, with 64pc of those attracted by the interest rate on savings. Fifty-seven per cent liked the fact the all profits were to go to charity, while 41pc mentioned the lack of bonuses for bosses as the reason. A third simply said the found Dave to be "likeable" and a quarter trusted him more than the big banks. Mr Fishwick was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, "Bank of Dave" Mark Pearson, chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, said: "I think what David Fishwick has done is very admirable and it's no surprise that many people would get behind the idea and turn their backs on big banks if given the chance. "The fact that all profits go to charity is probably something that appeals to the general public, as they know that he doesn't have an ulterior motive to make millions from his idea."
