Kayak for Christmas
Finding the perfect gift for anyone is hard, however taking note of their hobbies will always help you get them something nifty that they will get good use out of. Take kayakers for example, if you have a friend or family member who likes kayaking Christmas is the best time to get them a piece of kit they will like. Now this time of year is especially good as there are the best bargains to be had in this out of season time as shops want to sell as much stuff as they can.
So why not consider getting them a nice piece of equipment or clothing? Don’t worry if you do not know what is useful to them, the only places you can get this stuff is a proper retail shop, so just ask one of their members of staff for some ideas, if you have a budget then I’m sure they will be more than happy to help. Popular gifts for the kids who have grasped kayaking with both hands are things like new, better paddles or dry cags. What about a good quality spraydeck or even a couple of dry bags for their belongings. Possibilities are endless.
An example of a great place to call or visit is Herefordshire and Borders Canoes and Kayaks (hbcanoekayak.co.uk), they have friendly helpful staff, a testing lake for demoing certain kayaks, a massive variety of kit. Coupling all of this with the outstanding customer service and returns/exchange procedures your paddling family member or friend will not be disappointed, and can easily get it exchanged.

According to the Office for National Statistics, fewer people are migrating from the UK than in the past three years but there are still significant numbers of British nationals seeking work abroad. While the ONS considers 174,000 migrations a good number, consider the fact that in a ten year period that would mean 1 million Britons are making the choice to relocate, usually for economic reasons.
The reason the ONS finds this number ‘encouraging’ is because in 2010 almost 300,000 people left the UK to live elsewhere. Added to the number of UK citizens relocating abroad are those foreign nationals returning to their homelands. In total, over 336,000 people moved abroad in 2011. However, this doesn’t mean that the UK is losing a third of a million people a year.
Although Britain is allowing fewer foreign nationals into the country to work and study, this does tend to balance out the total population to some degree. Popular destinations for British émigrés are the United States, Spain, Australia and France while Poland sees the greatest number of non-British residents returning to their homeland.
According to a spokesperson from the ONS, government is not able to set controls on the number of people emigrating from the UK just as they are unable to control those coming in from the European Union. Nonetheless, government can work harder to control illegals entering the country.
Government is working towards what they call ‘zero net migration’ which would mean that they are working towards keeping inbound and outbound migrations on a level. In his campaign to keep the population of the UK under 70 million, Sir Andrew Green is working to keep these figures below 40,000 per year. Even so, with those moving into and out of the UK at almost record levels, removal companies are doing big business as migrants often need to move entire households.
