After the hugely popular ‘Daddy do my hair? Beth’s twists’, Tola Okogwu is back with another hair adventure; ‘Kechi's Hair Goes Every Which Way’ @tolaokogwu
Who will win in the epic battle between dad and hair?
Kechi’s hair is big, thick and loud … and that’s just the way she likes it. Mummy’s away and it’s up to Daddy to get Kechi and her hair ready for school. There’s just one problem… he doesn’t know how!
Fun and hilarity ensue as Daddy tries to tame Kechi’s swirly-springy, fluffy-puffy, squishy-squashy, candyfloss curls.

Available in store and on our website now alongside an array of other fantastic children’s books.

Creative Writing - A Masterclass with Courttia Newland

This amazing class takes place on Saturday 5th May at New Beacon from 11am - 2pm - limited availability applies so book fast to avoid disappointment. Info on our website and tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.
A master class headed up by reknowned author; Courttia Newland. The session will cover the key techniques to help develop your individual voice as a writer.
The aim of this course is to foster a lively atmosphere in which discussion and the spirit of engagement create a supportive and inspiring environment. Explorations of technique, process and motivation form a large part of the course. As does reading.

Courttia; "Having read all my life and found it a great source of pleasure, one thing had always bothered me - I never saw myself reflected in the pages of anything I read. This prompted me to write my first book and has kept me inspired to date! Telling untold stories keeps me alive". Some of Courttia’s books include:
The Scholar
The gospel according to Cane
Society within
The dying wish 📚
Open Tues - Sat: 11am to 6pm

Video reposted courtesy of @thebritishblacklist BBC News:
The home secretary has apologised for the treatment of the Windrush generation, saying it was "wrong" and "appalling" that some face deportation.
Many immigrants who arrived from the Commonwealth decades ago as children have been told they are here illegally.
Amber Rudd said they would be helped to attain required documents for free and added she was concerned her department "sometimes loses sight" of individuals.
Labour's David Lammy said it was a "day of national shame".
The Tottenham MP said it was "inhumane and cruel" that it had taken the government so long to act.

David Lammy: "This is a day of national shame"
Thousands of people arrived in the UK as children in the first wave of Commonwealth immigration 70 years ago.
They are known as the Windrush generation - a reference to the ship, the Empire Windrush, that brought workers from the West Indies to Britain in 1948.
Under the 1971 Immigration Act, all Commonwealth citizens already living in the UK were given indefinite leave to remain.
However, the Home Office did not keep a record of those granted leave to remain or issue any paperwork confirming it, meaning it is difficult for the individuals to now prove they are in the UK legally.
Changes to immigration law in 2012, which requires people to have documentation to work, rent a property or access benefits, including healthcare, has highlighted the issue and left people fearful about their status.

This is disgusting. This country was built on the hands of those they are trying to deport! We must stand together to prevent this from happening. Sign the petition!
