H3 Half Term
Over school holidays we make an extra effort to get our children and families involved in activities, keeping them busy, healthy and entertained. Overall, 20 children and 13 parents took part across the week and there was great feedback from parents and little ones alike.
We kicked off the week with some arts and crafts, based at the families temporary accommodation scheme. Mums, dads and children took part in monster-making, painting ceramic moneyboxes and making their own earrings and necklaces.
On Wednesday we went down to the Stockport Homes 8-14s football event at Powerleague. This was in collaboration with Stockport County Community Foundation and every child received a free ticket to see Stockport County play at a league match.
Youth Loneliness Summit
We travelled into Manchester for the Youth Loneliness Summit which presented new research from Manchester Metropolitan University and 42nd Street called Loneliness Connects Us.
There was a range of arts, discussion and feedback around solving the challenges of youth loneliness and exploring new ways to build friendship and engagement across the city region.
One of the young people who attended said, “It’s made me feel better about myself, I loved the performance.”
The last activity was a day trip to the Museum of Science and Industry to discover robots, aeroplanes, trains, the cotton industry and a Victorian fun fair. The exhibitions were great for children of all ages and the fun fair was a total hit!
