Many of us will not have heard of a Child Contact Centre, or realise the Aylesbury one meets upstairs in our Community Centre twice a month. The Centres are there to help parents whose relationships have broken down, and who need help to sort out access to their children. For the non-resident parent, not seeing their children is often painful, and equally the resident parent may be nervous and upset about leaving their child/ren. The Centre provides a place of safety and support for both parents, and even grandparents, giving quality time for them to see, play, talk with the children they would otherwise have no or little contact with. Parents often say that they don't know what they would do without the Centre, and that it has enabled them to regain their greatest loss, that of not seeing their children. Children of all ages come; at present our youngest is a baby of 7 months, and the oldest are young teenagers.

This Saturday 20th July, at 7.30pm, the SOS meet with a theme of Space & Junk. It is a frightening thought but that small step for man happened 50 years ago, yes 50! The other small step to obesity is also celebrated on this date with National Junk Food Day. So, whether we look up at the moon and remember Apollo 11 or look up the delivery company bringing a burger/pizza/kebab we meet at Gill and...
