The aim of the charity is to turn the negative experiences families into a positive. The charities aim is to support families within our borough that have a family member with SEN. With the support of Broxbourne council and HCC a support group is launching. The group will run every other Friday 10-12 from Cheshunt Park golf club. Opening on Friday 22nd October. Services will also be invited in to talk with parents starting with Andy Laurance from the 0-25 team who will be attending on the 5th November.
Morrisons- SANDY packages
Period poverty is a real issue, as those who are struggling cannot afford the sanitary products they need. To help, some Morrisons stores have launched an initiative to discreetly give out free products to those in need. If you are in need or struggling for sanitary products, go to the Customer Service Kiosk and ask for a package SANDY has left for you. You will be given a FREE discreet envelope with what you need. No questions asked.
Hertfordshire Constabulary- Halloween Competition
Young people can make this Halloween one to remember by entering our online quiz where they can win a magical prize for the whole family. We have teamed up again this year with Warner Bros to give youngsters the chance to win a fantastic family ticket to The Making of Harry Potter in Leavesden.
Over the Halloween and Bonfire Night period, Hertfordshire Constabulary is inviting young people between the ages of 5 and 16 across the county to take part in the online quiz, which aims to help them enjoy Halloween and Bonfire Night safely.
The quiz is part of a campaign run during the Halloween and Bonfire Night period, with local councils and the Fire and Rescue Service, to deter anti-social behaviour and make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time.
To enter the competition, visit www.herts.police.uk/halloween and answer the questions before midnight on Monday 8 November.
If children (and parents) are planning to go trick or treating we ask that you consider the following advice to help you stay safe and not cause distress to others:
·Never go trick or treating alone and always take an adult with you.
·Don’t knock on the doors of strangers
·Only visit houses where there are signs that trick or treaters are welcome, such as Halloween decorations and pumpkins outside.
·Keep your Halloween ‘tricks’ safe - damage to property or hurting someone is a crime. Threatening and abusive behaviour can amount to an offence too.
·Remember road safety rules, particularly after dark.
·Wear something bright so that drivers can see you.
·If you are planning on hosting your own firework party make sure you tell all your neighbours, especially those with pets who may be affected by the noise.
