It makes you jump out of bed in the morning.

It warms your skin and soothes your soul.

It makes flowers bloom and turns tomatoes red.


It always came on holiday with you when you were

a kid. It was in every picture you drew in primary

school. It provides the background for lots of happy



It’s the thing you think of when the wind is

howling and the rain pouring. The promise of it

gets you through winter. And when it finally arrives

it makes your spirits soar.




The one thing, more than anything else, that fills

us with hope.


We like sunshine


The Sun’s energy output is estimated to be 386 billion, billion megawatts.


In 15 minutes, the sun radiated as much energy to Earth as the world’s population consumes in all forms, during an entire year.


The sun also provides us with our main source of vitamin D which strengthens our bones and muscles and boosts the immune system.


We are all aware of the dangers of skin cancer, but scientists believe sunlight may reduce the risk of several other types of cancer. It can help protect you from cancer of the breast, colon, ovary, bladder, womb, stomach and prostate gland. So cover up and get out in the sun and play.


Sunlight also stimulates the pineal gland - a tiny pea-sized organ found in the base of the

brain. This gland produces chemicals called ‘tryptamines’. One type of tryptamine, melatonin, keeps our body clock aware of night and day and the changing seasons.

‘Too noisy’ Broughton Gate skate park gets short term reprieve


A Milton Keynes skate park threatened with closure after noise complaints has had a short-term reprieve.

The council had agreed the scraping of skateboards at Broughton Gate skate park was louder than the legal limit.

It said that removing the facility was the only option and a public meeting was held to discuss the issue.

It has now served owners The Parks Trust with a noise abatement order offering solutions and 28 days to implement them.

The skate park in the children’s play area at Broughton Gate was designed by Milton Keynes Council and opened to the public in August 2011 with The Parks Trust taking ownership in April 2012.

After residents complained, a council investigation found noise levels to be unacceptable, including late at night and early in the morning.

‘Unacceptable levels’

Following a public meeting, the council imposed a number of conditions the trust must adopt.

These include installing security fencing with lockable gate and restricting use to between 10:00 to 19:00 BST.

Council chief executive David Hill called the park “a victim of its own success” with people using the skate park day and night.

“Unfortunately this has led to unacceptable noise levels for local residents,” he said.

David Foster from the Parks Trust said that there was “still a great deal of work to be done to comply with the conditions.

He said: “Hopefully the work specified by the council will mean that the skate park can remain open and the residents who were affected by the noise will get the peace and quiet they are entitled to.”

The facility cost £85,000 to install and would cost a further £15,000 to remove.
