The Queen's Life Guard
Horse Guards is named after the troops who have mounted the Queen's Life Guard on this spot since the Restoration of King Charles II in 1660 and remains the official entrance to St James's and Buckingham Palace. This is why The Queen's Life Guard is still mounted here. Apart from members of the Royal Family or cavalrymen on duty, everyone needs the Sovereign's permission in the form of an Ivory Pass to either drive or ride through Horse Guards.

The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust Brewery Arms Cottage       Stane Street    Ockley  Surrey      RH5 5TH     

We run an educational programme in 10 local schools in the Niamina district of The Gambia, covering equine care and welfare. This programme is taught to children in Grades 5 and 6 where the children are typically between 9 and 12 years old. Young boys are usually the main carers for the family's animals in The Gambia so by providing them with education about how to correctly care for their animals we can help to make an immediate difference.

Right now, there are thousands of rescue dogs in RSPCA animal centres all desperately looking for forever homes. Many of these dogs have had a bad start in life but they can still make the most amazing companions – they just need your help to make that happen.

With centres across the country and staff that will help you find the perfect four legged friend – adopting couldn’t be easier. Once you’ve spent time with your new dog, trained staff will visit you and your family at home, discuss any specific needs and make sure your house is suitable.

Taking a rescue dog home is both exciting and rewarding and best of all you’ll be giving a dog that really needs it – a second chance in life. In this series, we’re trying to find a fantastic new home for a super rescue dog each week.The dogs we’ll be featuring are some the RSPCAs longer stay residents and for no particular reason they’ve been overlooked. Maybe, you could give them a second chance in life. Follow this link to find out who we’re trying to rehome this week.

Royal Geographical Society 
*Going Places With Geography Year 12 Conference 2018*

Royal Geographical Society(with the Institute of British Geographers),
1 Kensington Gore,   London, SW7 2AR

An opportunity for Year 12 pupils who are considering geography as a career option to find out more about the subject and progression. Our Geography Ambassadors and guest speakers will run a day of informative sessions at the Society in London.

Going Places is a conference event led by the RGS-IBG Geography Ambassador Scheme to get students excited about and widen perspectives on geography. The event is bound to be a useful and informative day as it includes a mixture of talks from undergraduates, postgraduates and people in work to reflect where geography can take you.

Founded in 1830, the Royal Geographical Society is dedicated to the development and promotion of geographical knowledge, together with its application to the challenges facing society and the environment. While most people are aware that the RGS is a members institution, non-members can visit exhibitions in the Pavilion and enter the Foyle Reading Room. A visit to the RGS is often a rewarding experience as the Pavilion exhibition space is a great way to enjoy either historical exhibits from the RGS archives or to see the latest work of the RGS and its members.

Shark Trust  

Shark Trust, 4 Creykes Court, 5 Craigie Drive, The Millfields, Plymouth, Devon, PL1 3JB.

Established in 1997, the Shark Trust started on the corner of a desk in Newbury. By 2000, the Trust had a small team and had set up shop in a room that was originally designed as an ice cream parlour outside the newly-built National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK.

Twenty years on we have grown a little in size and a lot in terms of our reach and influence. Still based in Plymouth (Britain’s Ocean City), a city with a rich heritage in fisheries and marine science, we now work at an international level to push for the changes needed to safeguard the future of all sharks, skates and rays (and not forgetting the chimaeras).

Initially set up to be a voice for UK sharks, skates and rays, the Trust team from the outset worked alongside the UK Government and an ever-growing network of partners to protect and manage sharks in British waters. The UK is now internationally recognised as a champion for shark conservation and we strive to use our influence to effect change further afield. Shark Trust Membership helps the Trust by giving us a louder voice to call for positive change and giving us an income to support our programmes. 

Every Shark Trust Member receives a welcome pack and a copy of our bi-annual magazine Shark Focus.

See British sharks.
Become involved. So rewarding to do and help the magnificent sharks at same time.   Learn more about their shark finning campaign along with others.

Archangel First Aid Training Canine First Aid Course 

Karens DOGS Training Centre, Unit One, Knightridge Industrial Estate, Livingston, EH54 

Have you ever thought about what you might do if your dog or a dog in your care was suddenly involved in an accident or became seriously ill?

It’s an uncomfortable truth that 80% of seriously injured dogs will die before reaching veterinary care. Why such a high percentage? The reason is that unlike as is the case with ill or injured humans, dogs have no ambulance or paramedic available to give the much-needed pre-veterinary emergency trauma care. Nine times out of ten you are on your own.

It’s for this reason that we at Archangel Training are so passionate about our Canine First Aid Course. We believe that anyone who is involved with dogs, in any capacity, should have a working knowledge of what to do in an emergency. Picking the dog up and driving to the Vet won’t always be an option, even if it is, how do you move the dog without causing further injury?We offer courses to support your most loyal companions, our Canine First Aid course will ensure you are fully prepared for every eventuality.

The town sits beside Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish Lowlands. Declared a nature reserve in 1964, the loch attracts around 20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. Sitting peacefully on an islet within the loch itself is the enchanting Lochleven Castle. Between April and September you can take the small ferry to the castle which gained infamy when it acted as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567. Her dramatic escape by boat is one of Scotland's most romantic tales.

**See our Harry Potter page where you can read about the very kind J.K. Rowling who adopted "Sapphire," a beautiful, loving greyhound.

(MCS) is the voice for everyone who loves the sea. We work to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened sea life before it is lost forever. See our upcoming September Beach Clean & become involved.
See all of the events year round.

Beachwatch is our national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme - helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline. Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. Litter on our beaches is hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own & be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!

Our wonderful seas, shores and wildlife are under threat.  Almost nowhere in UK seas is marine wildlife safe from harm. We need to establish vital marine protected areas where wildlife can recover and flourish.

Levels of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sea life, including seabirds, whales and dolphins. 88% of Europe’s fish stocks are overfished or depleted. MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives. Our work ensures that the sea’s rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner. To become involved, be an event planner and to help, visit

'Trashed' Film w/ Jeremy Irons 

This very important film looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land, and sea by waste. It reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians, and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. 

Usually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call.   UK Screening Enquiries----Pls contact
