Hi it’s Gil again

Photo of Editor

I am writing this on the first day of summer which is dull wet and windy and almost like autumn. It keeps the British main topic of conversation alive. As far as conversation goes I would love to hear from you to let me know what you would like to see in your Family Grapevine, let me know of a forthcoming event or just to tell me about the bits you like.

In this issue there are two competitions, one to win Family Ticket to Paultons Park and another to win Mister Maker DVDs. I have continued with Vouchers which proved very popular. These are available to help promote a business. There are a limited number available in each issue so first come first served. If you would like to find out more then give me a call. Remember that all listings are free and will be included if they fit into one of the categories. Why not boost the profile of your business with an advert in this magazine that goes out to a targeted audience, its cheaper than you think. Anyway I hope you find this issue enjoyable and useful. I will be back in November.

CHATTERBOX

443 (Basingstoke) Squadron Air Cadets is a thriving unit for young people between the ages of 13 and 20, both male and female. We meet between 7:00pm - 9:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, most weeks of the year. The Air Cadets are a uniformed youth organisation giving its members opportunities to develop self-discipline and confidence, and also to try fantastic activities such as flying, gliding, and visits to working RAF Stations on week long camps. For more information, and to find contact details, the Squadron website is www.basingstokeaircadets.org. uk, or the Air Training Corp website for general information is www.raf.mod.uk/aircadets. Fleet Tutors: Holiday Revision to Go! Boost your child’s 11+ results. Our students experience fast paced and focused progress with the vast majority achieving an increase of at least 1 grade. Students share the invaluable resource of an expert subject tutor and the benefit of having questions answered immediately, yet course fees are considerably less than most one-to-one sessions. Summer 2013 courses will be held in West London and Farnborough, Hampshire. Visit www.fleet-tutors.co.uk or call our Client Support Team on 0845 644 5452 for further information. The next issue of the Family Grapevine will be coming out at the beginning of November so look out for your copy

Bullying & Cyberbullying Many children and young people experience bullying but they don’t have to put up with it. If you need some help for your child who is being bullied or is bullying, we hope you find these contacts useful. You will also find this information on my website so you can follow the links more easily.

“Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. No one has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad, and if you are being bullied you don’t have to put up with it, you can talk to someone about it”. Childline www.childline.org.uk

Telephone helpline for children and parents

“Cyber bullying is when a person or a group of people uses the internet, mobile phones, online games or any other kind of digital technology to threaten, tease, upset or humiliate someone else. Cyber bullying is a form of bullying but because it happens online or on mobile phones it can happen 24 hours a day, seven days a week”. Childline www.childline.org.uk “Bullying can take many forms, such as name-calling or teasing (verbal bullying), hitting or pushing (physical bullying), intimidation through threats or social exclusion (emotional bullying) and writing of offensive messages via the use of new media (cyber-bullying). Bullying can happen to any child at any time. Some children, however, are more vulnerable than others. Ralli Campaign www.youtube.com/rallicampaign
