Does your child play Fortnite: Battle Royale computer game ?
Ask your child are they playing the Fortnite game on their computer, games console, or mobile.
If so, are they talking or texting to other people?
You are able to turn off the voice feature but you are not able to disable the text chat feature. How do you or they know who they are chatting to?
Laura Randall, NSPCC’s associate head of child safety online, said “Apps, sites, and games such as Fortnite: Battle Royale can be great opportunities for young people to play and engage online.
“However in light of emerging concerns about the risks children could be exposed to, we are urging parents to be aware of Fortnite’s features. It’s vital parents have regular conversations with their children about the games they are playing, and how to stay safe online.
Anyone looking for further online safety advice can contact the O2 NSPCC online safety helpline on 0808 800 5002 or use this link https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/ .
Ford Transition - Pop Up Museum
As part of the transition of the Ford site, there will be a Pop Up Museum open to the public from Tuesday 3rd April to Monday 9th inclusive – entrance is free of charge.
It will be located on what was the site of the Ford factory and there is parking available on site - accessed at the new traffic lights on Wide Lane.
Follow the road into the new development, straight up to the top and park in the Cooper Vision Car park on the right hand side – it will be signposted.
Although entry to the Museum is free we are asking people to book tickets in advance as we have two timed entries a day at 11.00 am and 1.00 pm
If you would like to attend you can book ticket(s) either at the Round About Café or online at ticketsource.co.uk/ford-transition.
There will be refreshments available on site and also a small pop-up shop selling memorabilia produced by project volunteers – for cash only.
