Southwell Choral Society is currently inviting applications for its annual Choral and Music bursaries.

Enjoy a local run or bike ride while raising money for local charity Southwell Care Project (SCP) that supports adults with learning disabilities.

Leading charity Action for Children is teaming up with The World of Eric Carle and encouraging children's centres, nurseries and groups for under-5s in Nottinghamshire to host a Giant Wiggle event on The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day, Thursday 20th March.

The day, celebrated annually, marks the start of the 45th anniversary celebration of the UK's most read children's book. The event will bring together under-5s to wiggle along in giant caterpillar conga lines, encourage them to help others, and open up their imaginations through storytelling and creative activities.

Ruth Sorby, partnership fundraising manager at Action for Children, said: "By hosting a sponsored Giant Wiggle at your centre you'll be helping us continue to support vulnerable children, young people and families in the heart of communities in Nottinghamshire, and across the UK.

"If you would like to join in the celebrations on 20 March and organise a Giant Wiggle at your local children's centre or nursery, then please get in touch and we'll send you everything you need."

For more information, and to register for a fundraising pack to host a Giant Wiggle near you, visit or telephone 0300 1232112 (lines are open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).

This heart-racing production will be showing at The Palace Theatre, Newark on Thursday 6th March at 7.30pm.
