P2P in the Park
As you may have read, our Parent to Parent Volunteer Support Programme is based in Halton. Clare and Louise recruit and train volunteers to support families throughout Widnes and Runcorn across a broad range of issues. As it's summer time, though you wouldn't think it with the unpredictable weather, and school holidays are in full effect, Clare and Louise have devised a timetable of summery activities to help parents and children find fun, cheap (or even better, free!) things to do together. Over to Lou to tell you more...
"In replacement to the Coffee Morning this summer we are holding one day weekly sessions out in the community for the families we support. One week the activity will be held in Widnes the following week in Runcorn. All the families and volunteers have been issued a time table in the post, with dates, times and public transport details.
This week we went to Victoria park in Widnes. There were games played such as tennis, egg and spoon. Football, rounder's and jenga. Everybody got involved in at least one game and the children also played on the park. After packing up the families went to feed the ducks and swans. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves and said they would be coming to the next family session on 4th August, which will be held at Runcorn Hill Park."
