Noticeboard

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN: Sunburn increases you risk of skin cancer. Sunburn doesn't just happen on holiday; you can burn in the UK, even when it's cloudy. There's no safe or healthy way to get a tan. A tan doesn't protect your skin from the sun's harmful effects. Aim to strike a balance between protecting yourself from the sun and getting enough vitamin D from sunlight. SUN SAFETY TIPS: Spend time in the shade when the sun is strongest. In the UK, this is between 11am and 3pm from March to October. Make sure you: spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm, make sure you never burn, cover up with suitable clothing and sunglasses, take extra care with children, use at least factor 15 sunscreen.  For more information please follow the link: http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/skin/Pages/Sunsafe.aspx#safety
