If you haven’t done so already, dig out your barbecues, evict the creepy crawlies that have taken up residence since you last got grilling and join the many stoic folks who partake in National BBQ Week every year. Actually, you might be lucky with the weather as were we when we defied the poor forecast and decided to persist with our barbeque plans on Sunday: we were amply rewarded with a very pleasant afternoon and a breath-taking sunset.
It’s Walk to School Week 2015
Good habits formed at youth make all the difference.
Running from the 4th to 10th May is International Screen Free Week, encouraging us all to unplug from digital devices and reconnect with the real world. So take the children outside to explore, get active and connect with each other. Spring is in full flow, with new life emerging everywhere you look, providing endless opportunities to watch, listen and learn.
Spring is advancing at full throttle, with trees bursting into leaf and bluebells carpeting our woodland floors, and the birds are feeling perky and chirpy, particularly at dawn! International Dawn Chorus Day is the worldwide celebration of nature’s daily miracle.
