If you go down to the woods today...

By Courtney Knowles

Home Start is a charitable organisation that helps families by running a lot of different programmes. This ranges from helping young parents to find work, offering financial advice and running lots of activities for both parents and their children.


With trips, programmes and local activities, Homestart have a family day planned with; The Teddy Bear Picnic.

At the Amphitheatre, in the Lower Leas Coastal Park, there will be a picnic and a series of activities.  One of the organisers Neykia said Home Start would love for everyone to come and join in: “We try to do it every year with it being open to anyone and everyone. Just some Family fun”.

The activities on the day will include

  • Disco

  • Games

  • Art and crafts

  • Home Start will provide everyone with a snack bag (piece of fruit, cheese and a drink so bring a picnic)

There will be tombola for everyone to get involved and win prizes, at a small cost however they will be taken as donations.  “It will be really appreciated if people brought in prizes for the tombola as we would like everyone to be a winner”.  Donations would be a great help too “We don’t do it for money; if anything it costs us money so to get a little something towards that is a bonus”.
