After a shoulder injury I'm now riding my horse, April, again after some time out. Luckily for me though it wasn't serious unlike a friend of mine, Kacey Chapman, who broke her back whilst out competing in cross country.

The article in last week’s Sheffield Telegraph (‘Are children in the city with special educational needsbeing let down?’, Secret School, February 9) raised some important questions about how quickly we finalise Education Health and Care Plans for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and how speedily children and young people are assessed and receive treatment from health services based at Ryegate Children’s Centre.

February can be a horrible month. The weather is mostly manky, spring can feel a long way off, and no matter where you go you’re either wearing to many layers or not enough.

The Big Challenge: Food for thought on our climate

It is great to see the fossil fuel debate feature so prominently in recent issues of the Telegraph. Fuel and shelter are such basic human needs, but so are food and water.
