Mon, 1st March 2021 - Day Services Update - March 2021
Spring has arrived!
With the arrival of Spring, our team of Service Users have been working hard out in our Horticulture area preparing the ground for the next crop. All of our produce is delivered to our local services where it is transformed into nutritional meals for everyone to enjoy:
Up at the Mendip Centre, we have been upcycling both wood and tyres to create wheelbarrow planters! Hopefully in the near future, markets will re-open and we will be selling these as part of our Craftshed project. All the proceeds generated from this are then spent on recreational trips for the Service Users to celebrate all the hard work that they have put in:
Whilst we still may not be able to head to our favourite coffee shop for a slice of cake and a hot drink, the guys have more than made up for it with this Victoria Sponge Cake – And yes, it did taste as good as it looks:
The Baking Group decided to venture into the difficult realm of making their own pastry! As you can see, they absolutely smashed it and very much enjoyed their Cornish Pasties which tasted even better with all that hard work:
With sunnier skies ahead, the Service Users have really enjoyed getting out and exploring more of the local area as part of Walking Group. We are lucky to be situated in the Mendips where we are surrounded by beautiful countryside for the service users to enjoy:
Here we have one of the Service Users at his favourite part of Day Service – The Blackdown area! Here we complete Arts & Crafts projects utilising various mediums - this helps the Service Users express themselves through their artwork:
The guys did a great job of sanding this table down, so that all of those that attend Mendip could then leave a lasting impression of themselves by printing their hands on the surface. The table was then varnished by the team of service users and will now remain at Mendip for all to see:
Tue, 1st December 2020 - Day Services Update - December 2020
In preparation of the Festive Workshops held throughout the month of December by Day Services, Service Users enjoyed exploring the farmland to forage for the materials that would be needed for their creations:
In the first of the Festive Workshops, Service Users enjoyed making their own ornamental Reindeer, utilising different types of woods to create the bodies, legs and antlers! The guys displayed these proudly in their homes or chose to give them to family as a homemade Christmas gift:
Wreath Making Workshop
Service Users enjoyed weaving wood to create their very own wreaths. They were then able to decorate these with a variety of materials – including ribbon, dehydrated fruits, holly and moss. Snow spray and glitter was also a must!:
Christmas Decorations Galore!
The Service Users created some great festive decorations in the workshops – Including their own table centre pieces and clay decorations to display on their trees:
Christmas Eve Party
To end 2020, the Day Service team threw a Christmas Eve party so that everyone could get together and feel the festive spirit. The Baking Group were hard at work making mince pies and Gingerbread cookies that were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. Service Users also enjoyed watching festive films and playing a Christmas themed bingo game.
From all of the team at Day Service, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year:
Sun, 1st November 2020 - Day Services Update - November 2020
Go Big or Gourd Home!
We grew some whoppers for Halloween! Those that were not decorated by the Service Users were broken down for food and given to the wildlife on the Farm:
The Service Users have done an absolutely fantastic job of ensuring the animals are cared for, especially with the colder months approaching. The cows will now remain in the barn until the end of Spring:
Service Users at the Blackdown Centre have continued with their personal projects and have enjoyed being able to express themselves creatively. Keep your eyes peeled for the Christmas Workshops we have coming up next month!:
Service Users at the Mendip Centre have continued with their excellent work of upcycling old materials into new creations. In December, they will be learning how to recycle pallets to construct their very own Christmas Trees as part of our Christmas Workshops:
Despite the colder months well and truly arriving, everyone has pulled together to landscape the grounds on the site - it is more important than ever to get out and appreciate the nature around us. Well done guys!:
