    Teddy Bear Day





    THE STORY BEHIND THE BRAND

    When I was growing up my sister and I used to go to Harrods
    every year just to look at the amazing Teddy Bear display; 20 or
    more bears each dressed like little characters with miniature
    costumes carrying bags and playing musical instruments. We
    would have loved to have taken anyone of these toys home but we
    grew up in an ordinary family and £150 for a teddy bear was not
    an option. The bears we did own often came from charity shops
    but my mother would make little hats and jackets for them and we
    would play for hours together making up stories with our special
    bears playing the leading roles.



    Years later when I took my daughter to Harrods the little dressed
    bears where still there, but now they cost £200 each, and to my
    surprise my daughter didn’t want one. Instead she wanted
    Grandma Jessup to make her a special bear just like mine so
    Grandma Jessup did….. then her friend wanted one and then their
    friends wanted them too…



    Today if you go to Harrods right next to the little dressed bears
    you will meet The Great British Teddy Bear Company® displaying
    an affordable range of hand made, plush teddy bears each dressed
    in beautifully detailed iconic British costumes just like Grandma
    Jessup used to make.

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    fun-filled and glorious Sunday!




    WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY

    Join us on 10 September and reach out to people who may be
    struggling to cope.

    Connecting with others and letting people know that
    #ITSOKAYTOTALK is our key message for this year's World Suicide
    Prevention Day.

    What is World Suicide Prevention day?

    World Suicide Prevention Day is held each year on 10 September.
    It's an annual awareness raising event organised by International
    Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health
    Organisation (WHO).

    This year's theme is about connecting with others and letting
    people know that #ITSOKAYTOTALK.

    Why is it important?

    More than 800,000 people take their lives each year across the
    world. In the UK and ROI, more than 6,000 people die by suicide a
    year - an average of 18 a day.

    Reaching out to people who are going through a difficult time can
    be a game changer. People who are feeling low or suicidal often
    feel worthless and think that no-one cares. Small things like
    hearing from friends or family, feeling listened to or just being told
    that 'it's ok to talk' can make a huge difference.

    What you can do

    Start a conversation today if you think a friend, colleague or family
    member may be struggling. You can also join us on Twitter to
    spread the word.

    How can people reach out?

    It can be daunting to approach someone who is struggling to cope;
    you may not know what to say, how to start a difficult conversation
    or worry that you'll make things worse. However, you don’t need
    to be an expert. Often, just asking if someone's OK and letting
    them know you're listening can give people the confidence to open
    up about how they're feeling.

    Other sources of information

    Samaritans is here round the clock every single day for the year
    for anyone struggling to cope. If you're worried about someone, or
    would like emotional support yourself, please get in touch >>>

    All the family can join in with the fun, including your four-legged
    friends who can enter into our Fun Dog Show. Our clever canines
    will also be joining us, showing off their sound work skills in
    hearing dog demonstrations throughout the day.

    Our Late Summer Show caters for all ages with lots of children’s
    activities as well as an opportunity to do some shopping for the
    adults!

    Plenty of food and drink will be on offer throughout the day
    including a barbeque, homemade cakes and other yummy

    dogs are to be left in cars).

    hardstanding).

    Oooh! I quite like the sound of an Alfiebetty Day.


    I actually missed an appreciation day yesterday - it was the
    first ever 999 Appreciation Day.




    I think its fair to say that the British public have always held our
    Emergency Services in high regard, but usually are only reminded
    about how wonderful they are after they have needed their help
    for a family member or for themselves.

    Following the horrendous and high profile major incidents that our
    Emergency Services have had to attend in the first half of 2017,
    we felt its about time that there was an annual day where
    nationally we could all show and celebrate our appreciation for the
    brave and difficult job they do.

    Our emergency services run towards danger and disaster while
    everyone else is running away. This is something they actually do
    almost every single day at work, but we've seen this really come
    to prominence at the Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge
    terrorist attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire.

    After intially considering the 29th September which was the date
    the Metropolitan Police Service was founded, the date that seems
    to have generated the most interest on social media is the 9th
    September so please stick it in your diary now.

    I think this is a brilliant idea and long overdue!


    I only noticed it on my facebook feed this morning because I
    follow Hampshire Constabulary on fb - so looked into it further
    and found that the day was officially launched yesterday by SP
    Services.

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful
    and fun-filled Monday!




    Let’s talk about porn

    This year's theme is talking about pornography – and there’s a lot
    to talk about.

    We want to support people to have more open discussions about
    subjects related to porn, such as body image, consent,
    communication, safer sex...and the difference between fantasy
    and reality.

    Through our work with parents, teachers and young people we've
    often found that the most successful way to have those discussions
    is through an open-minded, positive and non-judgemental
    approach to the topic.

    Support for teachers >>>

    Support for parents >>>

    Get involved

    Show your support for Sexual Health Week with our banners for
    social media and digital screens.

    Download free posters to celebrate Sexual Health Week!

    Porn is one of those thought-provoking subjects that everyone has
    an opinion on. So why not join the conversation on Twitter? Just
    use the hashtag #SHW17.

    Remember A Charity Week, from 11-17 September, will call on the

    with a dedicated legacy radio station travelling the country to
    engage the public.

    talking about what they would like to pass on to future
    generations, with the radio station visiting Spitalfields Market in
    London, The Square in Bournemouth, The Forum in Norwich,

    discussion shows, music from the 60s and on air discussions with

    Abbots Bromley Horn Dance



    Taking place on Monday 11th September in 2017, this annual
    event attracts visitors from around the world to view this
    spectacular and unusual display.



    About the Horn Dance

    The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, performed at the Barthelmy Fair
    in August 1226, is one of the few ritual rural customs to survive
    the passage of time.



    Today the Horn Dance, which takes place annually on *Wakes
    Monday, offers a fascinating day out attracting visitors from all
    over the world.



    After collecting the horns from the church at eight o'clock in the
    morning, the Horn Dancers comprising six Deer-men, a Fool,
    Hobby Horse, Bowman and Maid Marian, perform their dance to
    music provided by a melodian player at locations throughout the
    village and its surrounding farms and pubs. A walk of about 10
    miles (or 16 kilometres).



    At the end of a long and exhausting day, the horns are returned to
    the church in the evening.



    Attractions during the day include exhibitions, craft stalls and, of
    course, the local pubs.

    I went to their site, and they had nothing to tell me where Abbots Bromley was!

    I find this a lot on websites about events! Crazy!

    Anyway, in the end, I looked on their map and kept reducing it until I saw a place name I recognised, i.e. Stoke! So quite near Flick, then!
    (But a bit too far from me!)

    I had actually saved a wonderful site (see below) and totally
    forgot about it! Typical.

    Here's their page about the Horn Dance ....

    http://calendarcustoms.com/articles/abbots-bromley-horn-dance/

    with the following quote:

    If you’re real lucky you may be able to volunteer to join in a dance
    – I did in 2011 and it was great! I was absolutely hopeless and
    clashed horns at one point with my opposite number- I’m telling
    myself it’s more fun for the spectators when the amateurs make a
    mess of it!!



    ^ You could volunteer next year Colin!

    family. It’s an opportunity to talk to our cidermakers, taste our
    ciders, and have a great day out! For the younger generation
    there’ll be apple pressing, facepainting and lots of other fun
    activities.



    We’ll be running a number of different tours, including visiting the
    orchards on a trailer, walking around our bottling and new canning
    lines, as well as getting close to our 150 year old oak vats. You’ll
    hear from our cidermakers about how we make our ciders, and
    why our apples are so important.



    If you’re feeling peckish, The Railway Inn will be open throughout
    the day with the pizza oven in full swing.



    Please join us! Doors open at 11.00am through to 3.00pm.

    There will be plenty of free parking on arrival at Myrtle Farm –
    please follow the marshalls’ directions.

    Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI) is hosting a photo
    exhibition featuring the works of Ann-Christine Woehrl at the
    Leyden Gallery in Spitalfields, East London.

    Ann-Christine, in collaboration with ASTI and its local partners,
    travelled to Bangladesh, India, Cambodia, Nepal, Pakistan and
    Uganda to capture the daily lives of survivors of acid attacks. She
    gives us an intimate glimpse into the day-to-day activities of
    survivors as they rebuild their lives. Her photographs capture the
    exceptional resilience and courage of survivors as well as their
    moments of despair and joy.

    These photographs are part of Ann-Christine's long-term project
    IN/VISIBLE.

    Ann-Christine is currently continuing her work in Colombia and the
    UK.

    The exhibition will run from the 13th to the 16th of September.

    A presentation of the IN/VISIBLE book and talks on the issue will take place.

    Oooh! Thank you very muchly - I'm always up for a cuppa
    or three!


    It's a beautiful start to the day here - sun is shining away
    and all is well outside after Storm Aileen clipped us through
    the night. Thankfully it was only the tail end and
    no damage seems to have been suffered locally.


    Hope you've managed to warm up a bit now. Nothing worse
    than feeling chilly.
