Securing your Future: The importance of having and updating your Will…


Life is a whirlwind of changes, each chapter bringing new experiences and milestones. Amidst these moments, one crucial aspect that often gets overlooked or postponed is estate planning through the creation and regular updating of a Will. Guardianship Wills with Integrity, an Oxfordshire-based Will Writing company with over two decades of expertise, recognises the pivotal role a Will plays in securing your future and the futures of your loved ones. 

Imagine this: you’ve recently tied the knot, moved to a new home, or welcomed a precious addition to the family. These significant life events mark not just personal milestones but also underscore the need to reassess and safeguard your financial and familial future. 

Marriage, a union of hearts and lives, is not only about love but also about responsibility. Creating or updating a Will after marriage ensures that your partner is adequately provided for and that your shared assets are distributed according to your wishes in the event of an unforeseen circumstance. Likewise, moving to a new house is more than a change of address; it’s a shift in your life’s landscape. Your assets and property might have undergone changes, necessitating a review of your Will to reflect these alterations accurately. Ensuring that your Will aligns with your current property ownership is crucial. 

Then there is the arrival of a new family member, whether through birth or adoption, whilst this brings immense joy it also brings a heightened sense of responsibility. Instructing a Will Writer after this momentous event allows you to designate guardianship for your child and allocate resources for their well-being, offering peace of mind amid life’s uncertainties.

However, creating a Will is only the initial step. The importance of periodically updating it cannot be overstated. As life progresses, circumstances evolve, and so do your assets, family dynamics, and preferences. Failing to update your Will after significant changes may lead to unintended consequences, potentially leaving your loved ones in precarious situations.

Guardianship Wills with Integrity encourages individuals and families to revisit their Wills regularly, ideally every three to five years, or whenever a major life event occurs. This practice ensures that your Will remains a true reflection of your current wishes and circumstances. 

In conclusion, a Will isn’t merely a legal document; it’s a testament to your care and consideration for your family’s future. Whether you’ve recently celebrated a marriage, moved house, or welcomed a new member into your family, taking the time to create or update your Will is an invaluable investment in securing the well-being of your loved ones and preserving your legacy.

Hello @followers Welcome to the July 2024 Issue of Look Local Magazine. I want to dedicate this months letter to three NEW local businesses that I have been made aware of. First up we have Beauty at No.11 which is a sustainable beauty studio that has opened in Watlington. Owned by Watlington resident, 23-year-old Georgina Eales, the salon offers the full range of treatments that customers would expect to find in larger salons, but with the emphasis very much on sustainable, hypo-allergenic products. Georgina, who learned her craft with respected beauty industry leaders Clinique and Charlotte Tilbury, has clear ideas about how to set her business apart from others. She is the only beauty studio within a 25-mile radius to offer Hona, a pioneer of hypo-allergenic nail products. Other innovative services include Elim, a medical grade pedicure treatment, which uses state of the art ingredients to remove hard skin from the feet. You can find our more about Beauty at No.11 on their website The next business I want to give a shout out to is a small, sustainability-led retail business called Comhla (pronounced - coh-la), which means ‘together’. Founded by Lucie Harrild, the brand aims to help customers step away from fast fashion by enjoying a variety of brands and services using their mantra: Buy Well. Mend. Extend. Lucie was a sustainability professional for the last 20 years and then in 2022 ventured into the world of Comhla, in 2023 she opened a small boutique in Long Crendon to showcase the concept she is building online into a reality for customers. For more information about the business or to shop, visit them in person at Manor Stables, Long Crendon, HP18 9FF or head to their online shop With the online world in mind, and with summer well and truly upon us now, this leads nicely onto the third new business I wanted to bring to your attention to.
