Did You Know? A baby’s hair begins to grow around the third month after conception. The total number of follicles is determined before the baby is born and will never increase, it will only decrease over time.

In 1990, American Vivian Wheeler decided to give up her battle with facial hair and let it grow. Ten years later, with a total length of 27.9cm, Vivian had grown her way into the record books for the longest beard on a living female.

Although human hair is the second fastest growing tissue in the body after bone marrow, it only grows about 1cm a month. Contrary to popular belief, cutting your hair doesn’t actually make it grow any faster. © Speedyprint - Please mention The Town Crier when responding to adverts

CALL Stuart on: 07854 705333 Did You Know? There are two credit cards for every person in the United States. Isaac Asimov is the only author to have a book in every Dewey-decimal category. It would take 11 Empire State Buildings, stacked one on top of the other, to measure the Gulf of Mexico at its deepest point. The most money ever paid for a cow in an auction was $1.3 million. It took Leo Tolstoy six years to write “War & Peace”. The Neanderthal’s brain was bigger than yours is. Each of the suits on a deck of cards represents the four major pillars of the economy in the middle ages: heart represented the Church, spades represented the military, clubs represented agriculture, and diamonds represented the merchant class.

GROWING KIDS ON A BUDGET AT ELSON JUNIORS NEARLY NEW SALE The rising cost of living and tough economic climate mean many families are having to tighten their belts. Buying second hand children’s clothes is an option, but it’s often online and difficult to be sure of the quality, while selling your own nearly new items can be time-consuming. But now cash-strapped parents in Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent will be able to find top quality clothes, toys and games at an upcoming Juniors Nearly New Sale, and save around 70% on what they would cost brand new. While this is the first such sale for Juniors, the team of volunteers is being led by mum Kathryn Kelly, who has run several similar sales for the national parenting charity NCT. “Now that my own children are older, I need a place to buy and sell their clothes. I really enjoy my voluntary work for NCT, so organising this sale seemed the logical next step. And I’m delighted that as well as supporting local parents we’ll be raising money for the school’s Parent-Teacher-Children organization, PATCH, and for NCT.” The Juniors Nearly New Sale will be on Sunday 30th June, 10.30 - noon, at Elson Junior School, Exmouth Road. Parents can find out more about buying or selling at the Facebook page “Juniors Nearly New Sale”, or register to sell their items by contacting Lisa at <cloud2bstorm@yahoo.co.uk> The Juniors Nearly New Sale offers an affordable alternative to the high street for children’s clothes and toys. Meanwhile, families can pass on the clothes their own children have grown out of, and make some cash at the same time. Items must be in excellent condition, and sellers will keep 70% of the proceeds while the rest is returned to cover expenses, and to fund the work of PATCH and NCT.
