James Carver MEPLast Thursday I had the opportunity to attend the Traveller Movement annual conference alongside our CEO Helen and six community members. Firstly, many thanks to all at the Traveller Movement for putting together such a good event, one buzzing with energy and strong ideas. As will all such positive conferences or meetings, it has prompted questions which have stayed with me the past few days.

Thank you to all

I wanted to say a few words of thanks for the fantastic reception we have received to Molly’s adventures with Travellers, my recent set of illustrated short stories. For those who missed it, we released an episode each day last week, including over the weekend, so if you missed them, have a look here to find the whole of the series.

As a part of our funding from the Play Enabling Grant from Leeds City Council we were determined to leave some fun stuff for the children and young people on Cottingley Springs to improve their outdoor space.

Over the summer we’d put on a range of activities on sites such as Boxing by ex professional Jimmy Lowther, street games, crafts and sports days and trips to the farm.

Review by Elisha – Leeds GATE Work Placement

Bullying checklistBullying is hard for everyone it starts off as a joke and only tormenting a person but it turns into bullying when it happens every day and every time you see that person. It is intimidating can also be stressful for the girl/boy.  Bullying can be online or face to face it is very fearful for the person getting bullied, it interferes with their work/school environment.
