The High Sheriffs of Rutland and Leicestershire have arranged various events throughout the year to support a number of charities including Warning Zone, Hope (the local cancer charity) and Loros.
One of these events is a sponsored walk on 8th May. Starting and finishing at Launde Abbey, the route travels through ancient woodlands, across countryside, and through the village of Braunston in Rutland before passing by the lake at Withcote and returning to Launde Abbey.
Refreshments will be available to purchase on the route and marshals will be stationed to guide and assist.
If you are interested in joining the sponsored walk, please email to register: RutlandSheriff16@gmail.com or email@example.com. There is a minimum of £5 sponsorship per person (£2.50 for children). For more information and to see other High Sheriff events, check out our Events page.
A big thank you to the Windmill House Trust for their generous donations to Warning Zone. The Trust provides grants through educational organisations to support cultural activities which involve children between the ages of three and 12 in the Rutland area. The trustees of Windmill House Trust have visited Warning Zone and have now decided to support all year 6 children in the Rutland area to visit us next academic year. That’s hundreds of children who are going to benefit from the important safety messages given at Warning Zone.
We now have a RAT at Warning Zone! Mr Rat has been introduced to our World Wide Wheel in our E-Safety Zone to reinforce messages about Remote Access Trojans – a.k.a. viruses and malware. He teaches our young pupils on what a virus is, how it can affect your computer or device, and how they can protect themselves by installing anti-virus software or by speaking to a trusted adult before downloading anything.
RATs are normally downloaded invisibly from untrustworthy sources and can be sent as e-mail attachments.
Make sure you are protecting yourself from RATs!
