I was saddened to read a newspaper article that a friend sent to me. It is from The Independent 22nd June 2015.
Yes, I know it is 2 years old but I suspect that nothing much has changed since then.
Here is an extract from the article.
A simple break can help build families’ relationships with each other and improve children’s learning and behaviour in school
Holidays matter. They are our lifeline to sanity, a chance to step away from everyday life and reconnect with the people we love; a time to relax, to be the real us, or indeed to be whoever we want to be.
And once the sand has been washed from the toes, holidays can leave us with a suitcase of life-long happy memories.
Yet today in the UK at least 1.46 million families can’t afford a single day out together, let alone a holiday night away from home. In one of the richest countries in the world, nearly five million people haven’t even one day’s outing to look forward to.
Millions of British children this year won’t get to paddle in the sea, build a sandcastle or lick an ice-cream on a prom.
Nothing to report when they return to school in September.
No happy memories to sustain them through grim times.
So damaging to family life.
