Spreading Sunshine – Lledaenu Heulwen
Last month, pupils from Milford Haven School with the help from Mountain Farm, Pembrokeshire launched our Spreading Sunshine campaign. They worked together with Phil Rees, Managing Director of Prag Ltd they researched the benefits of growing for positive wellbeing and created a how to grow guide. With donations of seeds from Mountain Farm they headed out into the community and delivered sunflower seeds to the neighbours of Milford Haven School. Don’t forget to send photos of your progress to admin@milfordhavenschool.co.uk. We can’t wait to see the sunshine spread across our wonderful community.

Young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB.
Below is a link to the young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB, designed for 11 to 25-year-olds. Here you will find six playlists to direct you to a wide range of online resources to help you through the lockdown and beyond. In each of the playlists you’ll find self-help websites, apps, helplines, and more that are here to support your mental health and well-being.
Please remember: if you’re finding it difficult to cope, make sure you speak to someone you trust. Who this might be is different for everyone, but it might include family members or carers, a teacher, a helpline, or a doctor. How you feel is important and lots of people are here to help if you need them.
