New Activities & Services for the Cross

Standard

We’re looking to improve facilities at Yew Lane in the next 12-18months. We hope this will include new kitchen facilities, a new activity room, with potential for creche space and new double glazing.

So the question now is: What new activities and services would you like to see the building being used for?

Here’s some suggestions from other people – but we’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts too, you can add your comments below.

  • Art therapy sessions
  • Dance therapy sessions
  • Gardening therapy sessions
  • Other therapeutic sessions
  • Counselling & support services
  • Adult education / learning
  • Sessions for adults with learning disabilities
  • Guided meditation
  • Relaxation classes

Space2Grow Sessions

Standard

Here’s the new Winter 2012-13 Space2Grow poster ….. as well as the Thursday afternoon sessions, we’ve got a garden “Working Day” on Saturday 17th November at Yew Lane – everyone is welcome to come and have a look around and help with planting the new raised beds. We’ll even provide snacks for lunch and plenty of drinks!

Space to Grow …. Roots

Standard

Weeding the raised beds at Space to Grow.

Space to Grow – Roots, is a gardening and social group for teenagers & young adults with learning disabilities, their friends, families and carers. Over the summer we’ve been meeting up once a month to do planting and weeding in the gardens – from September we’re changing the time we meet to a Monday evening from 6-7pm, the next session is on 26th September.

During the winter months we’ll still be meeting up but possibly spending more time inside where its warm doing jobs like creating a new all mosaic for the gardens,  as well as making sure there’s time for a biscuit, a drink and a chat.
