National Punch Day

National Punch Day 20th sept

National Punch Day is celebrated on September 20th of each year.
Punch is the term for a wide assortment of drinks, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, generally containing fruit or fruit juice. The drink was introduced from India to England in the early seventeenth century; from there its use spread to other countries. Punch is typically served at parties in large, wide bowls, known as punch bowls.

The word punch is a loanword from Hindi panch (meaning five) and the drink was originally made with five ingredients: alcohol, sugar, lemon, water, and tea or spices. The original drink was named paantsch.The drink was brought to England from India by sailors and employees of the British East India Company in the early seventeenth century.

Today, soft drink manufacturers distribute many types of “fruit punch” beverages. These are usually red colored drinks. Despite the name, most brands contain only a small fraction of actual fruit juice, the major constituents being sugar or corn syrup, citric acid, and artificial flavors.

Water monitoring day

Water Monitoring Day 18th sept

Water is a precious commodity, and one which we tend to take for granted – until supplies run short. Water Monitoring Daypromotes considerate usage of water, so as to preserve resources and ensure that water is available where and when it’s needed most.

It also promotes awareness of what’s actually in our water – from beneficial nutrients and minerals to harmful chemicals, why not take this day to understand what you’re drinking?

Did you know – The human body can last weeks without food, but only days without water. The body is made up of 55 to 75 per cent water. Water forms the basis of blood, digestive juices, urine and perspiration and is contained in lean muscle, fat and bones.

As the body can’t store water, we need fresh supplies every day to make up for losses from the lungs, skin, urine and faeces (poo). The amount we need depends on our body size, metabolism, the weather, the food we eat and our activity levels.

Take care save this precious resource… water.
