DEAFBLIND AWARENESS WEEK 27 JUNE - 3 JULY

There are around 400,000 people affected by sight or hearing loss. People are affected differently but there is no doubt that everyday activities can be difficult and time consuming for them. Even if we are not one of them, we should still get involved and learn how to make life easier for them. We can make donations, raise money for deafblind charitable organisations, make shops and workplace more friendly and approachable or even learn sign language. We can choose how we want to help and we can really make a difference. 

Please check the website below and our library resources to find out more about this awareness. 

Also you can watch Molly's story by clicking on the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQvgnx_j1l8. Molly is one of many people who are trying to have a normal life.

National Picnic Week will  take place across the UK. It is a wonderful occasion to reconnect with family and friends after such a long time not being able to meet up with people due to the Covid restrictions. It is also a great opportunity to enjoy nature and spend some time away from tv, mobiles and other devices. You can even make a day out of it! You can go walking, play games, visit a zoo or many other attractions and then have a lovely picnic together. 

Please check the website below and our library resources for the ideas for picnic meals and places to go.

PLASTIC FREE MONTH 

Plastic free month is a worldwide event to help people to find a way to start a plastic-free life. Every step counts no matter what size, every little change will make a difference and together we can make the world a happier and cleaner place. Simple everyday things sometimes can be easily converted into environmentally friendly items. Reusable water bottles, plastic-free tea bags, no straws or disposable coffee cups, avoiding plasticware at home, using razors with replaceable blades, buying products in boxes instead of plastic containers or bags etc. There are so many ideas which can be so easily introduced at home, school and workplace. 

Please check our LRC resources and the website below to find out more about plastic-free events.
