How to deal with neighbourhood disputes

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, most of us are lucky enough to get on with the people we live next door to, but what can you do if you don't?

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because being better neighbours can only have a positive impact on the quality of our communities, and who wouldn't want that :)

Our kids can't escape advertising - What should be done?

The team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Our children are being exposed to an average of 46 ads for unhealthy products every day (27 junk food, 12 alcohol, and seven gambling).

These things are the leading causes of cancer, obesity, diabetes, mental illness and many social harms.

Should our Government be doing more to protect our children from this advertising? What should be done?

Carpet or rug

Karen from Nawton

Hi. does anyone have a small red carpet or red rug either going cheaply, free or to borrow.
Hoping to get one before Tues 24th.
I'm running the meeting at my toastmasters club (at Western community center in Nawton) and my theme is an Awards ceremony type meeting.
As hopefully all attending members will be glammed up (dressed in their best) I want members and any guests to get the red carpet treatment by having a small carpet or rug at the main door upon entry whereby nibbles and soft drinks will be available.
If anyone else has one available please contact me on 0273901487. Will want preferably by Monday 23rd.
As only needed for a brief period willing to buy if offered for a really very cheap price but hopefully someone has 1 I can borrow or for free.
Many thanks
PS people genuinely interested in toastmasters are welcome to attend. Meeting starts at 7.15.
