Poppyland Sure Start is holding a party (by invitation only) on 18th May 2006 to launch three new Baby Cafes serving breastfeeding mothers.

The launch will bring together breastfeeding mothers, their peer support volunteers and all the Sure Start team for a celebration from 11am to 1pm on Thursday 18th May in the Mundesley Children's Centre.  Attractions will include a children's entertainer, a buffet, Fairtrade refreshments and Emma Bridgewater, local pottery designer and breastfeeding advocate, as special guest. The media are welcome to attend.

Baby Cafes are drop-in centres for pregnant or breastfeeding mums and their partners and supporters, where they can get help and advice from trained health professionals and volunteer counsellors, or just socialise with them and other mothers, in an informal atmosphere and without needing an appointment.

The Poppyland Sure Start Baby Cafes are held 1.30pm to 2.30pm in Stalham Church Rooms (Church Rooms, Brumstead Road) on Mondays, 10 am to 12 noon in Cromer Children's Centre (adjacent to Suffield Park Infants' School) on Tuesdays and Mundesley Children's Centre (adjacent to Mundesley Junior School) on Thursdays.  They have been funded through the Sure Start initiative to promote breastfeeding, which is recommended by the World Health Organization as the healthiest start in life.

Health visitor Sue Hopkins said, "There is strong evidence that breastfed babies do best.  Mother's own breast milk is exactly the right food for their baby.  Many mothers start breast-feeding following birth but stop after only a few days due to lack of support.  Experience shows us that breastfeeding mothers supporting other mothers will increase the duration of exclusive breast-feeding.  Baby cafes aim to provide this support in a high quality environment."

Sheringham & District Branch.  The Chairman, Derek Shrigley, MBE, in presenting his Report thanked all those Members for making 2005 the most successful in the Branch's history.  With a record Wings Week Collection of 10,001, a record Membership of 237 and record attendance's at Branch events, there was little more a Chairman could expect.  He went on to say that if we were to equal or exceed our record Wings Collections of 2005 this year we must increase our House to House Collections throughout the Branch area.
Sir Colin said that with the closure of RAF Coltishall and the loss of their support we needed to raise at least an extra 1000 in 2006 if we were to break last year's record figure.

The girls
New evening classes for men, topics covered in this course include: how to fill ice cube trays, toilet rolls - do they grow on the holders?  Differences between laundry basket and floor.  Dishes and silverware; do they levitate/fly to kitchen sink or dishwasher by themselves?  Learning how to find things.  Empty milk cartons; do they belong in the fridge or the bin?  Health watch; bringing her flowers is not harmful to your health.  Real men ask for directions when lost.  Is it genetically impossible to sit quietly as she parallel parks?  How to be the ideal shopping companion.  Remembering important dates and calling when you're going to be late.  Getting over it; learning how to live with being wrong all the time.   Living with adults; basic differences between your mother and your partner.

The Guys' Rules
Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!
1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.  We need it up, you need it down.  You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.
1. Sunday sports.  It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be!
1. Shopping is NOT a sport.  And no, we are never going to think of it that way.
1. Crying is blackmail.!
1. Ask for what you want.  Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work!  Just say it!
1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.  That's what we do.   Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem.  See a doctor.
1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.  In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.
1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls,  don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.
1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.  Don't ask us.
1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.
1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done.  Not both.   If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.
1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials. 
1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.
1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.  Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.
1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong.  We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.
1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.
1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...Really.
1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.
1. You have enough clothes.
1. You have too many shoes.
1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.
