Another busy day up at the Harding Avenue hub and also down in Parkgate hub where there was arts and crafts and more wax melts.
And the travelogue visit today was to Millhouses Park in Sheffield.
Calling all plumbing firms that will turn up.
We are a Community Centre [Harding Avenue, Rawmarsh] that houses a six-day local day centre for adults with learning difficulties and autism.
Our building was a charity school built in the 1600’s but don’t worry we have had a few updates since then. There have been 5 extensions added; however, we only have one ladies, one gentlemen and one disabled toilet.
As you can see by the following photos, we tried painting them to make them more inviting!! [The photos do not show the dire need for refurb].
However, we wish to refurbish them. We have had plumbers come and look at them and promise quotes to follow, but the quotes never come. The stumbling block maybe that there is a great deal of pipework involved which seems to be the thing every plumber that has viewed them comments on.
We want the walls, the floors and the facilities upgrading desperately now that Covid is relenting and we are hoping to return to normal service.
Is this the sort of job you would like to quote for? Would you turn up; we promise unlimited refreshments and a whole lot of gratitude.
PLUS we will sing your praises on all our Social outlets [we have many] for a good job; but be warned there is the reverse side. This is not a small job although it’s in a small working space, can someone please help us.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange a visit, a chat or a recommendation of someone that can do the job.
Morning everyone a beautiful day to start the new week with.
It’s great to see the friendships, activities & laughter returning.
Slowly more people are re-joining Social eyes; and we are hopeful by mid May all our Service users will have returned to the service. We are looking forward to an action packed week with more people planning their return this week.
The Green Team would like to thank you for your ongoing support as we move forward slowly & safely re-opening Social Eyes to its full potential.
As well as Facebook, Twitter and this website we have a parent/carer helpline available. The users of this line wish to record their gratitude towards The Green Team who continued to support everyone throughout lockdown. They paid socially distanced visits delivering activity packs, making videos and supporting the carers/parents through the long, lonely lockdown. Many of the carers/parents have been single-handedly coping with adults who are unable to comprehend the Covid rules and regulations.
Here are some of the parents/carers comments on the service: –
I love how the Social Eyes team are so aware of both the physical and emotional needs of the whole family and try to accommodate our wishes wherever possible 🙂 Thank you.
Oliver is so happy to be back to the Magic of Social Eyes. There is something very special about Claire and the people who work with her; they are such an inclusive group with something special for everyone.
Michelle had a challenging week at home. Have come to realise even positive change is difficult for her to manage. She is looking forward to regular attendance though and Social eyes is the happy place for both of us!!! Roll on next week. New chapter well and truly sorted and will never forget how amazing Green Team have been and are still! Everything else should be a breeze after Covid!
I would just like to say a huge thankyou to the fabulous Green Team for making Rachael’s first week back a very happy one we weren’t sure that we would get her back as she had become settled at home; but what an enormous difference in her. She has come home full of laughter and very vocal, it’s a great relief to us that’s she’s so happy to be back and that’s down to the fabulous Green Team and the buns she made were delicious.
It’s lovely that everyone is so happy to be back at Social Eyes, our Rich is over the moon about being there for full days as well.
Hey JJ is back at Social Eyes on Tuesday. Thankyou Karen she is sooo looking forward to it.
David’s back this week. He’s so happy. It’s been such a long time.
An action packed roundup of the week at the two Social Eyes hubs. Up at Harding Ave it was bottle painting, dancing and baking and at the Parkgate hub it was sports and fitness all round. The Banned were out at Thorpe Hesley Community Centre rehearsing and there were day trips out.
So, today we have skittles, singing, dancing, keep fit and a trip out in the sun.
