OUR NEWS AND EVENTS BLOG
On Sunday 21st August we held a Summer get-together for staff at Salter’s Hill and their families, volunteers and people we support at Court Farm Barn in Aylton. Everyone was asked to bring cakes and sandwiches to share along with teas and coffee. The afternoon started off in the sunshine and although it got a little bit wet towards the end it didn’t dampen everyone’s spirits.
Thanks go to everyone who could make the get-together and who brought such a lovely selection of food, there was plenty to go around! Thanks also go to Rebecca and Ian Jones at Court Farm Aylton for providing such a lovely venue and their on-going support of Salter’s Hill this year.
In October two of our staff members will be taking on personal challenges to fundraise for Salter’s Hill.
On the 16th October 2016 Laura who works in Ledbury will be running the Birmingham half marathon while on the 2nd October 2016 Marta from Pound Farm in Gorsley will be running the Cardiff half marathon.
We are excited to let you know that in September Salter’s Hill will be hosting a free course for adults with learning disabilities living in Gloucestershire in partnership with Kingfishers Treasure Seekers.
This course is designed to empower potential new leaders to begin to lead themselves and others. This course can run alongside volunteering/work so that potential leaders can use what they have learnt in their own lives.
The course is 8 weeks long plus a celebration and certificate presentation sessions. The sessions will cover-
1.What is a Leader?
2.Setting personal boundaries
4.Strengths and challenges
5.Coping with change
These sessions will run from 10am – 12noon every Thursday from the 8th September at Salter’s Hill Barn in Ledbury.
On Wednesday 3rd August 2016, the Friends of Salter’s Hill held their annual BBQ at Beechenhurst BBQ site in the Forest of Dean which was a great success.
Many thanks go to the Friends of Salters Hill for organising this event and for always putting on such a lovely spread of food. It was also great to see so many people there including people we support, staff, families and volunteers.
Following on from the success of our last recruitment event in July, we are planning a second event on Wednesday the 17th August 2016.
This will take place at the Good News Centre on Newent High Street (GL18 1AN) and Managers, staff and people we support will be available to talk to anyone who is interested in working for Salter’s Hill between 10 am and 12 noon. We currently have full-time and part-time vacancies for staff in Gorsley, and our Home Care and Support service in and around Gorsley, Newent and Ross-on-Wye so this is a great chance to find out more.
