The Word for the Week is: ‘Late’!

Being ‘late’ is bad …

A popular London preacher of the 19th century famously lectured his students to do their best to always turn up for appointments on time, saying: ‘I hope not to be known as the late Mr. Spurgeon as long as I live!’

Well, ‘lateFive to midnight LATE’ is certainly not generally thought of as a great thing to be, and ‘too late’ can be lots worse.

Being ‘too late’ is worse!

Almost a thousand farmers in Wales will lose part of their subsidy payment this year because they failed to meet the 15 May deadline for submitting their Single Application Form.

1,000 farms were ‘too late’ last week

The Welsh government has confirmed that 16,739 forms had been submitted ahead of the deadline at midnight on Friday 15th May, leaving about 900 outstanding claimants with penalties.

If you are one of the many SPS ‘too lates’, don’t put it off any more – get in touch right away on

Don’t put off the hard questionsVague question mark

It doesn’t help to put off the hard questions – they are only going to get harder!

Now, of course, many were probably put off by the new online Farm Payment forms this year … although the old style paper forms could still be used. And then there were those rule changes, and … let’s face it … the nagging threats of penalties if we got it wrong.

But just putting off questions we don’t want to answer is a dangerous way to go …

No-one wants to think time is short, whether for Ministry forms or for REAL matters of life and death … but just as there are no excuses for being late for the Government, there aren’t any about missing the boat with God either.

That’s what it says in the Book, and that’s actually what it’s going to be – whether for Single Farm Payment or for Heaven.

So don’t miss this boat!
