Bugs Life Wild play & Picnic with Somersham & Pidley Time Bank and Somersham Nature Reserve

A fantastic turn out saw yesterday (24th August 2016) plenty of children catching bugs and identifying them, making pipe-cleaner bugs even having their faces painted with bugs on them! A fun sweet stall was there to create edible bugs! we made lots of spiders and even some caterpillars! (We had some sea-creatures too at one point! A jelly fish and a crab!!) the competition for the best veggie bug was very popular too, and congratulations to everyone! They were amazing!

Thank you to all the mums and dads, aunts and uncles and even granny’s and grandpa’s bringing the family along (The dogs too!) to have lots of fun in the sun and with the wildlife. Hope we can see you again next year, and at our next event!

eCops – Test your Knowledge on Road Saftey

Stopping distances, consequences of hitting a child and fuel consumption are a few things covered in this week’s quiz to test your knowledge of the difference between driving at 20mph and 30mph.

The quiz, the second of its kind, has been created as part of a month-long THINK! speed campaign educating motorists of the consequences of speeding.

We are encouraging motorists to take part in the short quiz to test your knowledge of the difference between driving at 20mph and 30mph. The quiz can be found here:

If you kill someone while speeding, you will have to live with the long-term emotional consequences. Remember that speed limits are there for a reason.

Motorists are also encouraged to take the following advice:

  • Make sure you leave plenty of time for your journey, taking into account traffic
  • Watch out for changes in the speed limit
  • Drive to suit the conditions and the layout of the road
  • Don’t let peer pressure encourage you to break the law
  • Don’t assume it’s safe to break the speed limit because there is less traffic.
  • Don’t be tempted to put your foot down because the road ahead appears clear

Top Tips from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)

  • Check your speedometer regularly
  • Know the limits – look for signs
  • Assume lamp posts mean 30mph
  • Speed limits are a maximum
  • 20’s plenty when kids are about
  • Slow down when entering villages
  • Give yourself time
