A Hip Hop Thumbs Up for Your Postie from UC Crew

UC Crew members have been busy taking part in this week’s St Helens #Stayathomechallenge!

They have been designing a Hip Hop thumbs up for your postie drawing to say thanks to our posties.

The art brief was to draw our very own Break Dancing postman Kula, to thank him for his hard work as a postman and as a volunteer for UC Crew.
Kula will choose a kids and an adult winner, who will receive a £10.00 voucher each to spend on activities.

Our project is funded by Community Foundation For Merseyside

TikTok Advice for Parents

UC Crew are now on TikTok, providing a number of St Helens dance challenges, lessons and fun videos of our crew members.

We wanted to let you know about TikTok safety for your kids online, TikTok has a “family safety mode” designed to give parents tighter control of their child’s content stream. It works by letting parents link their TikTok account to their Childs and allows them access to turn features on and off. Information was provided in this article by the BBC BBC – TikTok Article

To find out more about TikTok as an app, its safety, how it works and what you can do, please visit Common Sense Media – TikTok
