Stuff is pretty hectic at the moment which means I haven’t had a chance to go over more of my notes from the Youthwork Conference and then post up some of my thoughts. Hopefully I will be able to grab some time to do that at the start of next week.

At the moment I am involved in teaching lots of lessons about the true meaning of Christmas at some a local school on top of the normal schools work, and the YFriday gig is on Saturday and so there is lots of behind the scenes stuff for that.

We got good news over the weekend. We have been given extra funding from the Challenge 2000 and Children’s Fund so instead of the £4,334 we had been told we had been given we have actually been given £6,000. This is great news because it means we can buy everything that the young people had applied for, bar the laptop and table tennis table. However, there is the Youth Opportunity Fund & Youth Capital Fund to apply for in the next few weeks – just need to think through what we want to apply for – at the moment one of our suggestions is a sheltered bike rack as some of the young people cycle to youth club and we have to put all their bikes in my office to keep them safe. Do write a comment if you have any good thoughts on what we could apply for.

    person furious: Diets actually make you gain pounds over time and that has turned out to be more and more apparent within

    the weight issues epidemic that\\\’s negatively effecting this kind of unhealthy food, minimal exercise generation. Are you concerned that stadium seats have

    to be increased to support the rise in

    individuals increasing, ahem…girth? This means that we are being

    a larger place (and never in an exceedingly good way) of men and women than all of us have ever have previously which is before two full

    decades alone. Our kids experience unhealthy weight related

    problems by way of example diabetes in addition to coronary disease.

    I just read that in a research project seventy obese American youngsters from the age ranges of six to 19 had been subjected to

    several battery of medical tests to check out the end result that the eating habits packed

    with fat had on their more youthful body. The final results ended up being eye opening. All had

    high cholesterol levels and were included in the high-risk group of

    having coronary disease and heart failure that a few subjects ended up already expressing symptoms of.

    Could there be any kind of hope

    for anyone? I believe that your answer should be yes. Apparently

    virtually all we need is definitely some diet and exercise. We virtually all have to begin doing it Right away!
