PINOCCHIO: The Boy Within
Applies to – All
Status- Information

The Brindley Theatre, Runcorn – Saturday 1 September 3pm Tickets £10, £9, £35 Family (4)

Liverpool-based theatre company Cuckootales, present a brand new and enchanting family show, Pinocchio: The Boy Within. Characters from the shabby and sinister, to the pure and ethereal combine with a visually striking set. Puppets and costumes will capture the imagination of audiences of all ages, and the host of memorable songs are guaranteed to have you singing along.  Carlo Collodi’s classic story tells of the impoverished carpenter who lovingly carves a puppet son, Pinocchio. Magically springing to life but struggling with the ‘truth’  he embarks on a journey facing moral temptation and mortal peril. Finding that his nose grows with every lie he tells, Pinocchio ultimately overcomes all obstacles to find ‘the boy within.’This original production is written and directed by Pauline Morris and Gemma Hurst with music arranged and recorded by Felix Hagan and is performed by a local Liverpool cast.

Halton Trading Standards
Applies to – All
Status – Information 

Buying cigarettes from your mates and not from shops: Halton has a high prevalence of smoking compared to the national average, with c.10% of 8-15 year olds smoking, rising to c.20%+ 14-17 year olds. In September, Halton Trading Standards will be running a concerted campaign to reduce the damage done by illegally imported cigarette being sold to minors. The campaign is trying to address these numbers by targeting schoolchildren and raising awareness of the health and social issues linked to smoking.

There will be campaign posters and materials to re –enforce the message that buying illegal or counterfeit items could cost you your life. Not only are the cigarette imports or counterfeits of a much lower quality than those produced by the mainstream manufacturers, they also contain large amounts of potentially harmful chemicals not found in “normal” cigarette. The burn rate and combustible materials used are also very different than commercial cigarette, they do not self-extinguish when left to burn as legitimate cigarettes do. The potential for serious physical harm is ever present.

If posters and materials are required, for either PHSE lessons or to put on school notice boards, please get in touch with
