If you are a family in the East Riding, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council are aiming to encourage and help residents to use the correct bins for family waste. East Riding residents are currently the top recyclers in the country (out of 380 authorities in England) at 65.4% of all household waste being recycled, which is fantastic. Let’s try to increase this even more by making sure the right waste is going in the right bin, to keep the blue bin material as clean as possible.
You can read the Mumbler blog about nappies .
If you have a large, young family and need more, any residents who feel they are struggling with their current bin capacity should contact (01482) 393939 or email@example.com for advice and help.
You can find more information on their website here.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is offering advice and support to parents who may feel their child is affected by bullying.
Bullying can have a negative impact on a young person’s work, health, self esteem and confidence. It can take many forms including physical, emotional and even text and internet bullying. Often parents and family members are the first to spot signs that their child is being bullied.
Bullying is usually defined as repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability.
What should parents look out for?
The type of behaviour that might be an indication of bullying includes:
– A reluctance to go to school
– Unexplained tummy upsets or headaches
– Showing signs of distress on a Sunday night or at the end of school holidays
– Becoming either quiet or withdrawn, or playing up
– Torn clothes and missing belongings
– Seeming upset after using their phone, tablets, computers etc.
– Wanting to leave for school much earlier than necessary or returning home late.
Bullying can have an impact on a child’s mental health so if your child is showing signs of serious distress – such as depression, anxiety and self harm always see a GP.
What can parents do to help?
Listen, be calm and provide reassurance that the situation can get better when action is taken.
– Listen and reassure your child that coming to you was the right thing to do
– Assure them that the bullying is not their fault and that they have family that will support them
– Don’t encourage retaliation to bullying – such as violent actions. Rather suggest they walk away and seek help
– Find out what your child wants to happen next. Help to identify the choices available to them
– Encourage your child to get involved in activities that build their confidence and esteem
– Discuss the situation with your child’s teacher or head teacher – or the lead adult wherever the bullying is taking place.
Bear in mind many children do not tell their parents because they are frightened that they will approach the school about the matter, make a fuss and make things worse, so it is a good idea to ask your child what they think could be done to stop the bullying.
Every child has the right to a safe environment in which to learn and play.
Lindsay Shelbourn, public health lead for mental health and suicide prevention, said: “Bullying can have devastating effects which can last into adulthood. Children who are bullied are at greater risk of developing mental health problems and in some cases it can lead to self-harm.
“As a parent or carer you may have concerns your child is being bullied. The most important thing you can do is to listen and provide reassurance. Take a look at the Anti-Bullying Alliance interactive anti-bullying tool for information on bullying.”
Bullying can happen anywhere; at school, travelling to and from school, in sporting teams, between neighbours or in the workplace. It’s not acceptable and if you feel affected by bullying you can visit www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk

Relax Kids sessions are designed to develop your child’s emotional intelligence in a fun and engaging way by taking them on adventures that give them lifelong tools to regulate their emotions and manage their feelings, as well as the confidence to try new things and the power of positive thought.
Our classes follow a 7-step programme that allow children to explore different themes through movement and play, yoga inspired stretches, self/peer massage, fun breathing activities, and a blissful visualisation section. Each class is full of fun and relaxation in equal measure.
There are different programmes to suit all ages – Little Stars (ages 2 – 5), Magical Adventure (ages 5 – 9), Chill Skills (ages 9 – 16), and Just Relax (Adults Relaxation Classes). Our community classes are held at The Old Granary, Riccall Grange in a beautiful and nurturing space in small, intimate groups. In addition to this, I offer bespoke one to one sessions that are planned around your child’s interests and needs – these are particularly helpful if you would like to work on specific issues (e.g. a period of transition such as separation, loss of a loved one, change of school etc).
Little Stars – Friday Mornings 10am – 11am @ The Old Granary, Riccall Grange
Relax and Restore Family Workshop – the last Sunday of every month 10am – 12noon @ The Old Granary, Riccall Grange
