A decade of helping children with life-limiting conditions is being marked in 2017.

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) was set up more than 25 years ago when Eddie and Jill Farwell came up with the idea to create a children’s hospice to help families in the South West.

The first hospice to be built was Little Bridge House in Devon in 1995, but it was soon oversubscribed.

In 2002 the charity launched The Babe Appeal to raise £11million to build Charlton Farm in Wraxall.

A children’s hospice is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year and a Weston woman says she is ‘eternally grateful’ for the care she and her newborn son received.

But Charlton Farm specifically offers medical care 365 days a year as well as support for families.

At the moment it supports 204 life-limited children, and 152 bereaved families.

The group in Weston has done a lot of work for the Charlton Farm hospice, which not only provides end-of-life care for sick children, but also supports their families during their stay.

Constantine School fancy dress for Roald Dahl centenary

It was a gloriumptious day for the children of Constantine School on Friday who dressed up as their favourite Roald Dahl characters to celebrate the author's 100th birthday.

The school was filled with Twits, witches, Oompa-Loompas and even a not-so-giant peach, as the children pulled out all the stops to create some whoopsy-whiffling costumes, and spent all day on a special squibbling task - otherwise known as writing.
