On your marks, get set, go for free Summer of Sport

 WV Active will be offering six weeks of free sporting activities for Wolverhampton residents to enjoy this summer.

The City of Wolverhampton Council’s Summer of Sport starts on Monday 23 July and continues until Friday 31 August across all three leisure centres, WV Active Aldersley, WV Active Central and WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams.

 Free activities on offer include badminton, tennis, squash, table tennis, family swimming lessons and fitness classes, and can be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages.

 Those who want to take advantage of the offer must be residents of Wolverhampton and will need to register for temporary Summer of Sport membership for free via the WV Active website.

 Councillor Steve Evans, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for City Environment, said: “We are delighted to be offering a wide range of free activities for local residents of all ages during the school holidays, and I’d encourage people to sign up for their Summer of Sport today.”

 The Summer of Sport programme is being supported with funding from the council’s Public Health service.

 Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Hazel Malcolm, said: “It is important that as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy sport and exercise, and by offering a wide range of free sessions at our leisure centres from 23 July to 31 August we hope that even more residents will be able to enjoy a fit and active summer.

 “This ties in well with our Vision for Public Health, whereby we create the right sort of environment in which people are better able to look after their own health and wellbeing.”

Dear Northern House (CoW)

Thank you so much for being a part of World Autism Awareness Week 2018!
For all of us at The National Autistic Society and all our supporters, World Autism Awareness Week is our time -it's our time to help people understand autism and autistic people, as well as being the time to raise vital funds to support autistic children and adults. Thank you so much for all your hard work and passion, and of course, for your generous donation.
You raised an amazing £367.40, which will make a real difference to our work.
It could go towards the provision of life-changing information and advice to millions of autistic people, their families and friends. Or, it could go towards funding the support we give to professionals, politicians and the public to understand autism better so that more autistic people of all ages can be understood, supported and appreciated for who they are.
2018 is our fourth World Autism Awareness Week and I am so thrilled and grateful that supporters like you are helping our biggest fundraising campaign to grow every year! Thank you so, so much for your amazing support.
And don't forget - we absolutely love hearing about how you got involved with World Autism Awareness Week! To share your story, please get in touch by emailing fundraising@nas.org.uk or by using our hashtag #WAAW
Huge thanks once more! And very best wishes,

99% of young people in England and Wales live knife free. And, while those that carry often claim to do it to feel safer, carrying a knife can get you into dangerous situations. Even if you can avoid the violence, there are severe emotional, personal and legal consequences that can come from knife carrying. This site will help you get information on knife carrying, its effects, and how to make the right decisions.

If you carry a knife, it’s never too late to make a positive change in your life. Going knife free takes courage, but the benefits are real. Join the millions of young people who live knife free.

Transport Changes

 As of Tuesday 8th May 2018, Northern House School changed its arrangements for transporting students into school.  It is essential that students arrive by 9.00am in order that they receive their breakfast and have a positive start to the day.  The changes have been positive and have been well received by a number of students.  We would like to thank parents/carers for their continued support.
