My name is Izzy and for my A level geography course work I am investigating how environmental quality changes as you move along the rural urban continuum. As one of my pieces of primary data collection, I will be conducting a survey and I would really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to take part in the questionnaire linked below. The questionnaire is anonymous and the more data collected, the more reliable my conclusion can be.

Thank you.

Possible Holiday Destinations for 2021

I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognises you there. I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore. I’ve also been in Doubt; a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often. Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get. No doubt one day I will be in Continent, and I don’t remember what country that’s in. It’s an age thing – Ed.

BBC – Give a Laptop

Woodborough Parish Councillor Margaret Briggs has asked us to draw your attention to the great need for laptops and tablets for underprivileged children during the current period of home schooling.

The BBC tells us that last summer local radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England. For those pupils, who were sharing phones at home while learning in lockdown, it made a huge difference.

With schools closed again, they’re once more asking you to help those pupils still in need and we are working to join the dots between your devices and the children who may need them the most. They are sharing details of companies and charities who can help us achieve our aim of getting devices to pupils.

Some charities can collect, wipe and share the laptops all in one; some can help take your devices off your hands to fix them ready for distribution; some are collecting donations to help fund devices for pupils; some are local to specific areas and some are nationwide, both across England and the UK.

Since launching our latest campaign, with your help, we’ve had over 17,500 device donations and 30,000 devices have been pledged by businesses. There has also been £700,535 donated to charities and schools, from local businesses, trusts, individuals and foundations as a result of the campaign.

For more information please click HERE.

Note from editor: This BBC campaign website is very poor in that it’s difficult to find local schools who need devices. Margaret Briggs and I suggest going to the link above, then clicking on “Business2Schools” from the list, and then selecting “Schools” from the top menu. Unfortunately you will then be presented with a multitude of schools from all over the country.

However, they are listed in county order, so scroll down to about 3/4 down the page to find schools in Nottinghamshire. When you click on the school of your choice, you will be taken to the school website where you will be a able to find the school telephone number to arrange a suitable delivery time (you have to take it to the school, so pick a local one).
