Show Highlights 15 June 2017

This week’s show falls within Carers Week and so we invited Victoria Lewin, founder of Who Cares for Us to come onto the show to discuss the range of resources available for Young Carers

We start the show talking about Open Farm Sunday and about our own experience of helping at Huxhams Cross Farm

We also bring an update from our friends at Felixstowe Nature Reserve who are helping us all to create nature reserves in our own gardens and green spaces. They have just launched the Bristol Schools Nature Reserve which is all about supporting schools in Bristol to create their own space for nature in their schools.

We shine the spotlight on a young naturalist and his family in Fermanagh in Northern Ireland – read his blogs here

We then invite Victoria Lewin of Who Cares For Us to join us in a phone interview in which she discusses the range of resources for Young Carers and we preview the demo of Emmie Don’t Say, from the soundtrack of Theatr na nÓg’s Country Musical Eye of the Storm, lyrics and music by Amy Wadge, Produced by Barnaby Southgate, Amy Wadge and Theatr na nÓg.

We finish with reading from the blog of Lesley Bradley, Community Circles Connector in Dumfries who talks about her years of experience as a carer and how her new role could help carers in Scotland.
