Good morning beautiful peeps and so we are into the mid week and a wet and gloomy Wednesday morning.
Did you know that the whole purpose of the six weeks holiday was due to agriculture? Yes in victorian times the children would take time out from school to help reap the harvest, pick fruit and help around the farm. Sadly those traditions of old are no longer with us so young people have six weeks of idleness and get themselves into all sorts of trouble. With cuts in budgets there is little or nothing for our youngsters to do.
A Few Things to do over the summer.
1. Vue mini mornings
