University of Cambridge are working on a research project investigating physical activity among new mothers.
They would like some new mums to take part in the research by completing a questionnaire, which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The questionnaire lists a number of statements and asks mums to indicate the extent to which they agree with the statements. There will be some basic demographic questions.
They areconducting this study because they understand that new mothers face significant challenges to taking part in physical activity. They aim to find out what these challenges are and design a support programme to help them overcome these and increase their activity levels. This is important for new mothers to improve health and provide positive role models for their children.

Hertfordshire Warmer Homes Scheme

The Hertfordshire Warmer Homes scheme aims to make homes easier and cheaper to heat by offering free or discounted energy efficiency measures, such as insulation and heating repair, or fuel switching advice to low-income and vulnerable households. This will reduce health problems and can prevent deaths in very vulnerable people.

Earlier this year, we were successful in obtaining a Lottery Award grant to enable us to have a canopy built in the garden of Hertford Selections Children's Centre.  Having the canopy means that the children can go out and play whatever the weather.  Have a look at the photos below:
