#MRWomenToday listen again: Police 'bleep' test; crafting in Laxey; world arthritis day

On the programme today: - 

- we asked how much sleep does your child get a night? With the NHS saying 6 to 11 year olds need 10 hours every night, a new study has revealed that 36 per cent of primary school age children actully get less than 8 hours ...

- today is World Arthritis Day and the focus this year is on encouraging people who might be experiencing symptoms to get an early diagnosis. We were joined on the show a little while ago by one such sufferer, Helen Cowley, who was diagnosed in her early 30s so we heard from Helen and Rheumatology Nurse Ellen Gray who talked about the symptoms and treatment options and talked about the support that’s available for people with arthritis over here. If you'd like to know more, contact Arthritis Care Ellan Vannin on Facebook or by calling 497767 

- we spoke with the lovely creative Sue Quilliam who told us all about the Craft and Art Demonstration Day that's on tomorrow from 11am to 9pm at the Laxey Working Men's Institute, as part of the 7th North Atlantic Native Sheep and Wool Conference being hosted by the Isle of Man from 12th to 15th October. You can find out all about the event on Facebook, or just turn up on the day.

- and we heard how Beth and Christy got on at the Police Recruitment Fitness Test last week... 

If you missed the show, you can listen again at this link for the next 7 days. Tomorrow, we'll be finding out about an initiative between the Police and Education who are working together to try and assist parents in identifying the dangers around drugs, alcohol and Child Sexual exploitation. Tune in from 2pm.
