This year we had a fantastic array of summer activities on offer and all were well attended. In total 119 young people from Worcestershire accessed and enjoyed the activities. We had some new activities and visited new venues this year, one being a visit to Elgar’s Birthplace Museum where the young people were able to learn about Elgar through means of listening to his music, playing along with various instruments and visiting his cottage.
We went to Sport Martley and practised our climbing skills! We delivered a bush craft survival day on our therapeutic site at Top Barn and a pottery day where the young people made bugs and miniature food from Fimo as well as working on a group sculpture from clay. We also had Steph back from How To Cook to run our cooking day, where we harvested and used some vegetables from our site to cook with. The young people learnt step-by-step the safe preparing and handling of fresh vegetables and made pasta and flat breads from scratch. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all. We had our play day at Perdiswel Young People’s Leisure Club this year, we cooked pizzas, decorated cakes, had lots of arts activities, puzzles, a sensory area and a bouncy castle as well as an outdoor play area. We also went grass sledging and zip wiring where the young people had the chance to overcome their fears, golf, trampolining, bell boating, yoga at the historical Croome Court and Minecraft to name a few. We finished the summer with our annual bowling celebration.
