Festival at The Elms

Posted on

Bunting went up around the centre as everyone prepared for the long awaited summer festival!


Lisa, centre manager says:

'We had stalls, live music and our very own Activate Dance Group did a 'sing and sign' to several songs.

It was busy, people from different centres, including Elmhurst came, as well as parents, carers, and people from our local community.

As everyone arrived they got a wrist band, glowsticks were available whilst the band were performing and people danced. Everyone had a raffle ticket and there were plenty of prizes to be won and lunch came in a festival box in keeping with the theme! Even the weather was true to form for the festival, even though it didn’t rain during the day, the grass was rather soggy from the previous days of continuous rain!!

The centre looked fantastic with flowers placed around the various rooms - people we support had spent previous weeks making the displays in arts and crafts sessions. The garden looked amazing, thanks to our volunteer Richard, who had helped us prepare!

It was a fantastic feel-good day, and we would like to thank everybody who came and supported us! Everyone at The Elms spent the last few months preparing for the festival and worked really hard in ensuring it was a great success!!

Well done everyone!!!'
