Medway Council launches group to help new mums

Thu, Jan 01, 1970

A drop-in group to help new mums with breastfeeding is to run in Chatham. Starting on 25 April, from 1.30pm to 3pm at All Saints Sure Start Children’s Centre, Magpie Hall Road, the group will be a relaxed and informal session where women can seek advice and support to feel at ease feeding their baby and meet other breastfeeding mums in the area. It is aimed at new and expectant mums deciding how to feed their baby, or just getting started, worried about feeding in public, thinking of expressing breast milk or ready to stop. It will also offer a one-to-one service, from 1pm, for those who don’t want to be in a group setting. The group will be run each Friday by one of the centre’s healthy eating team, Sara Cooper, who is a trained ‘breastfeeding champion’. For more information, contact the centre on 01634 338833.

Walk to school and get a tour of the Gills' stadium

Thu, Jan 01, 1970

Children and their teachers are being urged to walk to school and win prizes. Medway Council is launching its Walk 2 Count challenge in May to get pupils and staff thinking about an alternative way to school. The school with the highest percentage of walks will get a signed Gillingham FC ball and a tour for children around the Gills’ ground. Teachers who complete the most walks will receive a fruit hamper from A Better Medway. The challenge is launched to coincide with Walk to Work Week (12 – 16 May) and Walk to School Week (19 – 23 May). All schools will also receive a certificate in recognition of their efforts and the Gills mascot Tommy T and club cheerleaders, the GFC Gems, will present the top schools with the most walks with certificates. Cllr Phil Filmer, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Frontline Services, said: “Last year 27 schools took part in the challenge and the winning school, Phoenix Junior Academy in Chatham, saw 97 per cent of pupils walking to school. “It’s a great, fun way to get children keeping active.” Schools can get their free Walk 2 Count pack from the KM Charity Team website at www.kmcharityteam.co.uk For more information on forthcoming road safety competitions and local events go to www.facebook.com/saferjourneysinmedway or www.medway.gov.uk/saferjourneys
