How to attract more hummingbirds  to your back yard

SINGLE mum Claire Hattrick used every spare penny to pay off her mortgage eight years early. 

By the time she turned 47-years-old, Claire’s hard work had paid off and she was debt free.  

Now 54, Claire said the decision to pay back the mortgage on her property as soon as possible meant she was able to keep her home when her beauty business closed during the pandemic.  

By living on a shoestring budget and sacrificing holidays, Claire who lives in Andover, Hampshire, overpaid her £95,000 mortgage by £150 every month. 

She had taken out a 25-year mortgage, which was due to expire in 2023. 

Claire invested a compensation pay out of £6,000 that she received - and after seven years, the money had quadrupled in value.
