Impact on pupils
I really feel for the parents of children at The Newark Academy.

As a result of teachers’ industrial action, which looked set to continue today, they are having to make alternative arrangements for their children to be looked after.

Perhaps more importantly, for those with children in exam years, they are seeing valuable lesson time go to waste only a couple of months before they sit their GCSEs.

The teachers may well have legitimate grievances, but I do feel their stance has reached a point where it is potentially having a grossly unfair impact on the futures of pupils whose education has been entrusted to them.

Trek for hospice
PLENTY of people have responded to the call to support Newark’s Beaumond House Community Hospice as it battles to secure its long-term future. The Advertiser has backed a fundraising campaign launched to counteract a sharp fall in its revenue.

As part of its campaign the hospice is planning to re-run one of its most successful events — the Sahara Treks of 2012 organised in conjunction with this newspaper.

It is looking to sign up 30 trekkers for 2017 to mark the 30th anniversary of the formation of Newark Hospice Aid.

Demand was so overwhelming five years ago that two treks across the Moroccan desert had to be organised to ensure all those who wanted to take part could do so. The treks raised an amazing combined total of £138,000.
