The Good News Week (09/01/2019)

Happy hump day, and welcome to this week’s edition of The Good News Week! If you missed the start of this last week, this is our weekly spot on the blog where we bring you the positive and inspiring stories that have been in the news in the last seven days.

SUPER POWERED PICTURE BOOK HITS THE SHELVES

Our first good news this week is from The South Wales Argus, and a story of both creativity and inspiration to others. Pupils at a primary school in Torfaen have just published a new ‘superhero’ picture book aimed at encouraging a future generation to pursue careers in the social care and health sectors. More on this uplifting story here.

THE LIFE CHANGING POWER OF CYCLING

Not strictly from a news website this next story, but particularly good to read if you’re thinking of making some lifestyle changes in 2019. Cycling UK have named Durham born Alison Paterson, who in her fifties only took up cycling two years ago but has gained so much out of doing it – as you’ll read about here.

A NEW HOME FOR MAN’S BEST FRIEND

And over on BBC News this week, we head to our own fair part of the world – Essex – for the news of Baloo, a former police dog injured in the line of duty, who thanks to a public appeal now has a new home and a loving new owner. You can see more about this incredible story here.

We hope you enjoyed the stories we bought you this week. Don’t forget that we want this to be a place for you to share any good news you find too, be it local or national!
