Camden Council Youth Safety Fortnight

Camden Council is set to launch its next Youth Safety Fortnight with a series of events and activities for children, young people, parents, carers and professionals, which will raise awareness of what is being done locally to keep young residents safe – as well as helping to equip young people and the community to stay safe.

Running from 27 June to 10 July, this year’s Youth Safety Fortnight will have about 100 events taking place across the borough.

The themes of this year’s Youth Safety Fortnight are youth exploitation, keeping young people safe, and young women and girls’ safety, with a range of events and activities, both face to face and online, based on these themes.

  • Mother’s Day
  • Earth Day
  • Clocks going forward
  • Hayfever season
  • More and more people going back into work

So l hope you can enjoy the longer days and the warmer weather.

St Patrick’s Day 2022

Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit! Happy St Patrick’s Day to you!

Two years after COVID cancelled the traditional St Patrick’s Day parade in central London, it was back again in 2022. It was held on Sunday 13 March.

About 50 000 people attended the event, including the Taoiseach (or Irish Prime Minister).

I’m sure that the celebrations at the London Irish Centre in Camden Square will be sold out.

If you missed the fun, I’m sure there will also be celebrations all over the place this weekend, especially with Ireland also having a chance to win the Six Nations Rugby this weekend.

Help for Ukraine

Given what is happening in Ukraine at the moment, there are naturally many organisations, big and small, raising money to help the people affected. Keep a look out near you.

Here are just a couple:

International Women’s Day 2022

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

This year’s theme is a call to #BreakTheBias — raise awareness of the bias against women, whether conscious or unconscious, and progress towards equality.

One feature of this year’s action is @PayGapApp , where companies that tweet in support of IWD are having their gender pay gap tweeted out by an automatic Twitter account. It seems some organisations could be doing a lot better!

If you work in a larger organisation, you can view the gender pay gap where you work at gender-pay-gap.service.gov.uk .

Happy Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year food offerings

This year, Chinese New Year is on 01 February.

Unfortunately due to COVID, there is no traditional New Year’s parade in London. But people all over the city will be celebrating in one way or another.

This New Year will start a Year of the Tiger. Tigers are brave, charming and confident, but they can be impetuous, irritable and boastful.

So 新年好 (Happy New Year)!

Happy Diwali!

After last year’s celebrations were greatly reduced because of the pandemic, Hindus, Sikhs & Jains are planning to really celebrate the “Festival of Lights” this year.

So below is something to get you in the mood.
