A trip out for brunch then an exploration of cave art using natural ingredients for paint- tea leaves, chalk and spices make good, vivid colours!
We’ve had a breezy day out on Southwold Pier playing on the eccentric arcade machines! We’ve had a brain wash, practised walking across roads using a zimmer frame, and played ‘whack a banker’!
CCE made floral arrangements today for someone special and for most of the group the first time. They look lovely.
We all pitched in, helping clear an area from stinging nettle, so we can plant some trees in the next few weeks. After lunch we had a walk on the farm where we fed sheep.
This afternoon the theatre skills group chose to go bowling. A great team-building activity for us all 😀
After a hard morning’s employability and CV workshop, what better than a flutter on the 2p machines and a hot chocolate?
This afternoon we started labelling our time line which is on the hall floor in our main building, Milestone. As the year goes on and we look at more topics, we will add them to the time line.

Today the PA group were inspired by last week’s visit to kentwell hall and their production of A Christmas Carol. We had a go following a script, everyone did so well. Joe played a mean Scrooge, humbug indeed. Afterwards we had a Christmas beverage and pigs in blankets.
