Day at Haydock Racecourse

stepscic_word_p No Comments

A fabulous day at the races was experienced on 5th July by some of our attendees.  We visited Haydock racecourse in the glorious sunshine for the afternoon meet.  The comfortable surroundings of the County Enclosure enabled our attendees to relax and enjoy the races whilst having a fantastic view of the finishing line.  We would like to thank Jockey Harrison Shaw who took time out to meet our attendees before his race.  Harrison then went on the ride his horse ‘Miss Sheridan’ to 1st place over the finishing line.  It was with great pleasure that we were able to meet him again after his race so that we could congratulate him on his success.  This was an amazing experience and a first for our attendees to meet a Jockey.  This day was a great success as some personal goals have been achieved by our attendees.

We have seen great success in our photography sessions with some fabulous images being created.  These sessions have allowed our attendees to develop work based on particular themes or subject matters of their choice.  Practical experience with the camera on location is then developed back at Ashland house where our attendees view and digitally manipulate their own photographs.  Presentation of their final images in their own portfolio of work encourages pride in their achievements and we look forward to them choosing their favourite image for exhibiting in the near future.





Sports Day

Our summer sports day took place today at Rose Bridge Community Club.  We had a fantastic time with our attendees competing against each other in sprint, egg and spoon, bean bag and obstacle races then a traditional tug of war brought our events to a close.  It was great to see everyone taking part and we even had some healthy competition amongst the staff.  The blue team were the winners of the day as they had scored the most points from all events.  It was agreed by everyone that this was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and was successful in achieving our objectives of promoting exercise for health and wellbeing, teamwork and social skills.

During his review one of our attendees expressed that he would like to experience camping, therefore today we have created our very own camping experience. Our attendees were introduced to pitching a tent and we played outdoor games including ring toss, cricket and jenga. We have enjoyed a BBQ lunch and smores to finish and have had a fantastic day in the great outdoors.
