Monday 15 May is International Day of Families so our RIGHT of the Week is Article 18: Both parents or legal guardians, have the responsibility for the upbringing and development of the child. The best interests of the child will be their main concern. Governments will do their best to ensure that both parents take shared responsibility where appropriate.
Unfortunately Club 55 will not be on this Thursday 18 May. We are really sorry, but Mrs Edge Loake has to go to a meeting.
