Change clocks – Half Term – Halloween Week
Did you remember to change your clocks? What is the time?A new hard-hitting advertising campaign is urging people to make a potentially life-saving move when they change their clocks on the weekend of 27th October by taking a moment to test their smoke alarm too.The twice-yearly clock change is a task that everybody takes for granted. Turning the clocks back for an extra hour today. Make use of it, go for a walk in the sunshine.While timekeeping is a vital part of our lives and we all keep our clocks working to stay on track, it’s shocking to know that many people forget to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones by not changing the batteries in their smoke alarms.A working smoke alarm can buy you valuable time to get out, stay out and call 999. But only half of all householders who own a smoke alarm say that they test it’s working on a regular basis.Go on test it now or ask a member of your family to do it for you.
Blood, we would not survive without it. We need it. Our heart loves it. But some of us do not like giving it away. Some run away at the first sight and some of you work with it every day.Halloween week is the week that children and adults love to decorate themselves and costumes with it, but let’s go back to giving it away!On TV this week and next you may see an advert for “giving blood”
About the ITV2 Blood Squad campaignFor the second year running NHSBT and ITV2 have partnered to inspire young people to register and donate blood through the #ITV2BloodSquad campaign.
The ITV2 Blood Squad is made up of cast members of some of ITV2 most popular shows and will feature in exclusive Halloween themed promotions on air, in social media and online from 17 October-3 November to urge viewers to join their squad.
Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant says: “We need 400 people to register as new donors every day to maintain the blood supply, for the best chance of keeping patients alive.“For many reasons it’s vital that young people continue to register and donate – particularly young men – not least because older people become less likely to be able to donate blood. Please do something amazing and book an appointment to start saving lives, or talk to the youngsters in your family – you may need their help one day.

In class this week I have put up November and December’s calendar’s with open and closed times for over the Christmas and New Year period. Please note this is my time to spend with Tony and my family and when over 80 of you ask me the same question “where are you going” I can sometimes get a little snappy.
So all I am going to say is ……”it’s my holiday time and 2nd wedding anniversary”.

Have a lovely day and what time is it?
