The childrens charity Kids Company has been campaigning for changes to the Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Uk Sale delivery of care to vulnerable young people in the UK, and Society wanted to hear what changes you think are necessary and why. josiew94 shared this very personal account of her own struggles with the system, highlighting the need for change:

in the early 2000’s when I was at schooI

When I was in school the authorities knew I was being abused but they didn’t help me, instead they expelled me for poor attendance. I got my file back from them when I left and found they had known everything, everything was written down with blacked out names, but they had not helped me. At the time I was thankful, terrified of social services I spent most of my time staying out of public view. Now I look back on my childhood with the knowledge that I deserved care and wonder what it would have been like if a system existed that had the resources and training to have kept me safe.Its not right to demonise social workers, its the fault of the system and we must use one voice to demand that change for the children and young people at school with your sons and daughters who don’t have a voice to demand it.

Last weekend saw the start of the new British football season and we encouraged you to share your photos and stories about your club and what it means to you. There has been some great contributions so far. curtained shared this euphoric image from the moment Guildford City won their league a couple of years ago:

Guildford City win the league

Fans and players of Guildford City celebrate the goal which clinched the 2010/11 Combined Counties Premier Division title. It might be a lowly league compared to some, but you can see how much Bicester Village Prada Discount it means to the players and supporters of the club, many of whom offered time and money to help build improvements to the stadium that enabled the club to gain promotion. Non-league football gives people the chance to get closer to your club than would be possible in the Premier League. The rewards, if/when they come, are suitably amplified.

The Olympics-led regeneration of Stratford was one of the biggest development projects London has seen. Guardian Cities asked you to share your photos and stories if you lived or work in the area, and were eager to hear whether you had experiened a positive or negative impact from the games. Kev1049 suggests that the Olympic legacy has improved Stratford and its surroundings:

Much needed regeneration..

What’s not to like? A former wasteland changed to a beautiful, flora and fauna filled green space.

Go there on any weekend and you see how many people use this space. Great to see some money finally coming into the East End!

Ruth Kosminsky however feels like the Olympic legacy has not necessarily been beneficial for the local residents:

Since the regeneration of East London. There has been a lot of hype about how fantastic the area is to live in. This is mostly from professional people who have just discovered that the East End is not the dump that they thought it was. House prices have become very silly to put it mildly. If you are on a low income then you wont stand a chance of buying your own home. Under all the hype there are still very real social problems that were here before the regeneration and still remain today. I feel are deliberately being swept under the carpet.

To celebrate the return of The Apertura Outlet Prada Montevarchi Great British Bake Off, Observer Food Monthly set you a challenge of sharing your own outrageously decorated cakes. Your contributions have been of an extraordinarily high standard, with this Shark Reef Cake sent in by Harriet Childs really catching our eye:

Shark Reef Cake

This cake took FOREVER to complete! 30 hours. BUT I had an idea and I just had to keep going until it was complete. I could have made life a lot easier for myself if I’d just made a shark topper, but noooo, I had to make him swimming through the top tier, didn’t I? The bottom tier was polystyrene Authentic Prada Bag For Sale Ph into which I carved ‚underwater‘ caves and then back lit them with blue lights recessed into the board. I loved making it purse, but OMG it was such a labour of love!

Bridlington Boat Trip – 1960

My mum, dad and my brother Ian on our annual holiday at the seaside. My dad was a schoolteacher. My mum was pregnant with my sister Lynn at the time. My maternal grandparents came with us too but were not on the boat.
