The Mothers' Union 'Bye Buy Childhood' campaign aims to empower families to challenge the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood through positive action. As a result of their Bailey Review, all the major Regulators involved e.g. ASA, BBC Trust, Ofcom, PCC etc have now made themselves accessible through a single internet portal, http://www.parentport.org.uk and all businesses are being encouraged to create on their websites a single clear link for Complaints.

Raising St. Giles' Bells

[img_assist|nid=409|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=83|height=100]The work on raising the bells began earlier in the year when they were moved from their long-time resting place inside the church to John Taylor Bellfounders in Loughborough, for the necessary repair and preparation for rehanging. The planned date for raising them is the 22nd and 23rd June - some of you will wish to witness this sight, even if you have to do so from the other side of Castle St; St. Peter's churchyard will offer a good viewpoint.
