|Santa Cycle 8th December 2013 www.qef.org.uk A fun event for all the family. Put on a Santa suit and cycle the 10K along Barge Walk, Hampton Court to help us provide a special 'Bugzi' wheelchair for a disabled child this Christmas.
This ride from 9am on Sunday 8th December will take you on a flat path between Hampton Court Bridge and Kingston Bridge and back. Suitable for any age or ability. All children must be accompanied by an adult and helmets are mandatory.
Your registration fee will include your own Santa suit. There will be refreshments, lots of festive fun and maybe a visit from the big man himself...?!
There is no minimum sponsorship but we ask all our participants to raise as much as they possibly can! Every pound you raise will take us closer to providing a Bugzi wheelchair for a young severely disabled child this Christmas.
There will be prizes for the best decorated bikes and for those raising the most sponsorship. So get your Christmas off to an active start and sign up for our cycle today! Santa Cycle tickets now available! To book online please visit www.qef.org.uk

SOCATOTS is the first soccer-specific physical play concept for pre-school children and is designed to develop a child’s physical skills of agility, balance and co-ordination. This is done through the use of SOCATOTS specially designed brightly coloured balls and equipment. The programme is structured to develop each child’s positive personality traits, building confidence and self-esteem, and subtly introducing the very first steps of soccer skills and techniques. Each weekly session is led by trained staff and is structured according to the different ages and stages of a child’s development. An essential element of the sessions is the involvement of parents in the activities. This enables the coach to concentrate on the whole group as they learn through repetition and practice.

The new handbook "You Matter" is now available. Professionals, parents and young people have been working to develop the handbook for parents and older children (Year 6 and upwards). The handbook has been published in a 'back to back format' to provide advice, information and guidance to both parents and their teenagers. By providing information in this format parents and their teenagers will have the opportunity to see the world from 'both sides'. Teenagers are encouraged to look at issues from their parents / carers perspective and visa versa.
Do you have a copy of the Safe Parenting Handbook?
The Safe Parenting Handbook is a free resource for parents and carers. It offers ideas and information to help parents find their way through what can be a maze of issues and advice. It gives local and national contacts and further information you can follow up when you are deciding how to deal with your worries and difficulties. The handbook also lists some of the warning signs of particular difficulties and other helpful tips.
The team believes parents should have voice and are actively involved in Kingston's Parents Forum
