NATIONAL HATE CRIME AWARENESS WEEK

National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 will take place from 13th - 20th October 2018 So we need you all to start thinking about what you will do to support the week this year!

Have you or someone you know been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident?

Hate crimes and incidents come in many different forms It can be because of hatred on the grounds of your race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability

Hate crime in any form is wrong That is why it is important that if hate crime happens to you or someone you know, that you report it

Report it online : www.report-it.org.uk

Report in to your local police : call 101

In an emergency, always call 999

   info@gemmadixon.com

Participating in music and movement sessions is brilliant for keeping the brain and body active; for maintaining and even restoring brain and muscle functions; triggering autobiographical memories, emotions and speech; relieving tension and anxiety; promoting relaxation and increased flexibility; restoring well-being and much more. I use a range of well known repertoire - folk songs, hymns, popular music, songs from the musicals - and gentle movement sequences to create classes which are both enjoyable and challenging in all the right ways!

Classes are aimed at people with early memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, dementia or anyone wanting to keep their brain active to prevent the onset of cognitive decline.

NUMBER 60 TO THE SOMME

   Ballard School Performing Arts Centre.  Fernhill Lane.  New Milton  

   https://newforestplayers.com/   

In October, The New Forest Players will be honouring the hundredth anniversary of The Armistice and all those who served at home and on the front with a production of Number 60 to the Somme, a completely new Great War story with wonderful Edwardian music hall songs by Greg Mosse & Carol Godsmark.

It is a funny, inventive and touching play-with-songs in two acts – a completely fresh angle on the 1914-18 conflict.

The Great War was an extraordinary mobilisation of men, women, animals and machines. Over 1500 B-Type buses – open-topped, steel-wheeled, solid & dependable – were despatched to serve in Belgium and France. The London bus drivers went too and their vehicles became troop transports, mobile hospitals, pigeon lofts – they were put to any and every perilous use on the rough roads and tracks.

Number 60 to the Somme is the story of one such bus and one such driver, Jim Swift, together with his family and friends on the home front and his comrades & enemies in the front line.  It illustrates the comedy, tragedy and astonishing fortitude of this terrible conflict and while entertaining us, serves to honour all those who suffered or gave their lives for peace and freedom – whether at home or at war.
