Capstone North Team have enjoyed planning and taking part in family activities over the summer holidays. The North Team led by Hayley Barncroft the new support worker have planned trips each week across the holiday period over different venues to ensure carers and young people from all over could access at least one activity.
The trips included fun days at Wigfield Farm were the children made new friends and fed the animals. They also went to Liverpool World Museum, Eureka, Magna, Blackpool and completed a walk to Stoodley Pike.
The Capstone North Team especially had a great day at Blackpool Stanley Park with carers and children. Luckily the sun was shining for the day and the children enjoyed activities such as the rope swing, conker hunting, playing football, trampolines, and inflatable slides. To round the day off nicely they even went sailing on the picturesque boating lake. All enjoyed Ice Creams, doughnuts and slushies. Even the children agreed they were the best doughnuts ever!
Feedback from all the events has been fantastic just see below for yourself:
One carer stated- ‘Thanks for putting together the activities, it really nice for all the carers and children to meet and be able to support each other.’
One Young Person stated, ‘Thanks for taking me today, it’s been brilliant. The best part was everyone being so nice to each other.’
One staff member said, ‘It was a joy to watch the young people interact together and with other children who they weren’t familiar with, promoting a sense of normality.’
A big thank you to all who came, it was a pleasure to see you all having so much fun!
