Life in the UK at the moment is frightening and daunting for some who are going through the terrible weather here at the moment.

A section of the sea wall in Dawlish, Devon, collapsed and left the railway to Cornwall suspended in mid-air, ( see picture above)
Residents of homes on the Somerset Levels were evacuated amid fears flood defences could be overwhelmed.
David Cameron chaired his first Cobra meeting this year and announced an extra £100m for flood works.
At Prime Minister's Questions he pledged £75m for repairs over the next year, £10m for urgent work in Somerset - where several rivers have flooded - and £15m for maintenance.
The forecast for the weekend is worse storms to come. On the Somerset Levels, police used a helicopter to advise the occupants of more than 150 properties in Fordgate and Northmoor to leave their homes.
If there is one thing that we have no control of whatsoever is the weather. We can only hope that there will be some let up soon for the sake of all people who are being affected by this unique weather front.

With the schools half term approaching you can find lots of offers on fun days with the children to meals out. You just need to spend a little time on the internet and hey presto your half term activities are sorted.

Hopefully my pick on a few half term shenanigans is ideal for you and your family.

RSPCA Animal Champion
If you’re aged between 6 and 12 you can take part in RSPCA Animal Champion and turn your half term into an adventure full of fun and exciting activities. You’ll receive a toolkit through the post with lots of fun things you can do with your friends and family during February half term. 
You could invite your friends over for an animal themed sleepover and a night of fun and games, or get your hands messy in the kitchen making cakes and biscuits. There are step by step instructions to show you how to complete each activity, and we’ll also send stickers, posters and much more.

Choose your favourite 5 activities and finish them by the end of half term to become an official RSPCA Animal Champion. Once you’re finished you will get a special award and certificate.

Every year the RSPCA rescues and cares for thousands of animals. We believe that every animal deserves a happy and healthy life, and it’s our job to help make sure this happens. If you want to help animals too, you can show your support by becoming one of our amazing RSPCA Animal Champions.
It costs £15 per child to register and you will need a parent to sign up for you by filling in the form below. There’s more information available for parents here
Registration closes on 12th February and we only have limited places available. Sign up now to avoid missing out.
