These are some examples of our achievements from the past year:
- In April 2017 young people from all three SWITCH clubs and families we support in the Sidmouth area took part in the Easter Experience. From our base camp at Seaton Wetlands we took the young people paddle boarding and kayaking, and travelled on a tram on the first day and then walked to Beer quarry caves to see bats before returning to dinner around the campfire on the second day.
- The weather was absolutely scorching for Honiton Community festival 2017 and hundreds of people from all areas of Honiton came along to enjoy the afternoon and the festival ground was buzzing with activity. We invited local community groups and services to come along and have a stall and we had some fantastic displays and performances from SYTL Karate, SPS Kickboxing and Honiton Youth Orchestra.
- Open Arms East Devon is a mental health peer support group based in Honiton and is available to adult living in the East Devon district. We have been working closely with the coordinator who is one of our tenants to help with the development and growth of this valuable service. The group has applied to be recognised as a charity and they plan to attend many local events this year.
- Littleham Grow Your Own - a vegetable growing scheme - was taken on by 50 households in Littleham, Exmouth. Tenants received a vegetable growers starter kit which contained Seeds, compost, and care instructions to enable them to have a go at growing their own delicious fresh vegetables at home. We have received some great feedback from people who joined the scheme and we have seen lots of wonderful photos of tenants home grown vegetables.
