Congratulations to all of our new and re-elected MPs for triumphing at the polls in one of the most momentous general elections in recent memory.
Commiserations must go to all of those candidates who missed out.
A majority Government must be good news as it removes all of the uncertainty which would have come with post election wrangles and even the prospect of a second election this year.
Indeed, the pound soared last night even after the exit poll results were announced, and shares rose sharply when the Stock Exchange opened this morning.
We're in the News! The Portsmouth News has carried a story about our super charity golf day headlined 'Businesses raise thousands with day on the fairway'.
Our great thanks to all at the News for carrying the story. It's good to gain recognition for all of those fellow businesses who took part or supported the day in any way at all.
It also raises awareness about our two very worth beneficiaries, Help for Heroes and the Ickle Pickles charity for premature and seriously ill babies.
There’s less than 24 hours from polling day and it seems we’re no clearer to what colour, or colours, the next Government will be.
Latest polls place the Tories slightly ahead but still short of an outright majority – and we all know polls can be notoriously unreliable.
Such uncertainty can be unsettling for the economy, although we seem to have escaped lightly so far.
Recent figures from the Nationwide show that the property market has remained strong with the annual rate of house price growth climbing.
Estate and letting agents Taylors of Portsmouth triumphed in our 18-hole challenge at Waterlooville Golf Club in aid of Help for Heroes and the Ickle Pickles charity for premature and seriously ill babies.
Its team members then went on to scoop a flat screen TV and a Help for Heroes top in a raffle at a gala dinner in the evening as well as lodge the winning £160 bid for a signed Chelsea shirt.
We hope to have raised more than £5,000 by the time proceeds are counted.
Our second charity golf day in association with ADN Financial Solutions was a tremendous success with 64 players joining in the fun.
Some 16 teams tackled the 18 hole challenge at Waterlooville Golf Club yesterday in aid of Help for Heroes and the Ickle Pickles charity for premature babies and seriously ill children.
We had £1,800 in the bag before even teeing off, thanks to the generosity of local businesses who each sponsored a hole.
There was a great spirit as teams teed off from 11am onwards – and plenty of competitions and fun along the way.
Our big charity golf day is finally here! Nearly 70 players are teeing off today in our tournament at Waterlooville Golf Club in association with ADN Financial Solutions.
It promises to be a great day with lots of fun, good (and bad) shots, competitions, prizes, a raffle, gala dinner and, most importantly, the chance to raise lots of money for two very deserving causes.
This time around our beneficiaries are Help for Heroes and the Ickle Pickles charity for premature and seriously ill children.
We’re aiming to top the £3,400 we raised at our last golf day.

Some 70 businesspeople from the Portsmouth area are set to join us for the fundraiser in association with ADN Financial Solutions on Tuesday April 28 at Waterlooville Golf Club.
All proceeds are in aid of Help for Heroes and the local Ickle Pickles charity for premature and seriously ill babies.
It is £100 to sponsor a hole - and we're nearly there. Can YOU help us hit our target?
Have you been inspired by the Masters?
Young golfer Jordan Spieth shocked the sporting world when he claimed the famous Masters tournament at the age of just 21.
He fought off the challenge of golfing superstars such as Rory McIlroy to claim the title at Augusta last weekend.
The famous tournament is a nice precursor to our own golfing championship in a fortnight's time – albeit on a slightly smaller scale…
