Bake a sweet treat!

We have created a community cookbook where we are looking for anyone in the community including residents to send in some easy-bake recipes and images of bakes you have made. Now is as good a time as any to try out some baking and we have some great recipes on there already for you to follow! Thank you to everyone who have sent in recipes so far, we are looking forward to filling it with lots more creative bakes!


Calling all bookworms!

If you love being transported into a new world or would like to give reading a go with all this spare time, we have books down at reception. If anyone has any old books that you want to donate get in touch with us!

Take an online course and learn a new skill!

Want to learn a new skill through an online course within health and safety, child care, moving and handling etc? Take a look at our EduCare courses, a market-leading provider of high-quality, concise and easy-to-use safeguarding and duty of care e-learning services.

We are also building a new site Moodle where we are moving a lot of our engagement content onto it. If you have not already been signed up and enrolled on a course, speak to your YEC worker. On this site you will find lots of sources, resources and information on different programmes, covid and anything else we feel is important and you need to know. There are also lots of activities being added onto it, some which help develop skills and then more fun activities like quiz’s.
