A pamper and play day is coming to the Angel Centre next Saturday, as Visit From The Stork CIC holds a Women In Bloom Superhero Day to encourage parents to find ways of taking time out for themselves and improving their mental health and wellbeing.

Next Saturday, 27th October, Visit from the Stork CIC is holding a Women In Bloom event at the Angel Centre, a family fun Superhero Day aimed at parents and families with babies and under 5s.

The day will feature sessions in Mindfulness by North Manchester Mindfulness, Relax Time and Baby Relax by Empathy Holistics, and Massages from Little Haven at Home. There will also be stalls and a hot lunch provided. The idea is to encourage parents to find ways of taking a time out for themselves and improving their mental health and wellbeing.

"As a social enterprise we help parents tackle taboo subjects and perinatal mental health is a very important subject to be aware of and talk about" says Kimberly Bond, Managing Director of Visit from the Stork CIC.

"20% of women are affected by mental illness either during pregnancy or in the twelve months after giving birth" she explains "This includes PND, PTSD from traumatic birth or from caring for an ill baby. It is vital that women have the support they need to get through this period.

"Women in Bloom aims to bring together local mums from all backgrounds, connect them with services and organisations they need in the local community, and give them a great day out with some treats for themselves and their families" she adds "This is a great opportunity for parents to have some time out before a week of Trick or Treating Is upon them!"

Rachel Parkinson, Project Manager for BOOBS (Be Open on Breastfeeding Salford), which is helping to organise the event adds: "BOOBS will be hosting our Play Garden which will have toys for babies and toddlers and comfy seats for parents, for them to safely feed and play with their little ones, and have a safe space to come and talk to us if they need to.

"Sharing stories and experiences is so important for parents, so we can learn from each other and help those who may be struggling to get through the hard times" she says "Through our project we encourage parents to share their stories – whether they have breastfed for one day, six months, two years or not at all. We provide listening support, encouragement and friendship to everyone; Women in Bloom will be a great event to come and make some new friends and share experiences."

ECCLES HOMELESS SHELTER COURT CASE SET FOR END OF JANUARY

TOOTHBRUSHES AND SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

Star date: 14th January 2019

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".
