Tales from The Tool Shed

The Holly Lodge Centre couldn't run without our volunteers on the maintenance team - who come in one day a week and never know what jobs or weather they might be faced with!

Summer 2020

We reopened in August and have had a magical summer with the families who visited us.

We opened up our nature trail for individual families of children with a special need or disability and their siblings. Our team set up lots of sensory activities, such as a jelly pond, mud painting, clay and pond dipping, then let the families in to explore independently.

“[The children] have loved the activities and exploring the trail. The quiet surroundings have been especially great as busy environments are difficult for us to concentrate in. Very welcoming team and accommodating for SEN children.” Parent

There were many families who had been shielding over the lockdown period so it was wonderful to be able to provide a safe, fun space for them.

We linked with local groups Skylarks (a charity in Richmond) and Kingston SEND Parent Carers Forum to invite families known to them and in total we had 93 visitors, including 53 children attend.
