Family fun at
Local families were treated to a
free day out to Normanby Hall as
part of The Arc's Easter activities.
Children and parents enjoyed the
country park, explored inside the
farm museum, and had a picnic.
Only a week later, the Westcliff Community
Group held an Easter egg and card decorating event.
33 children and parents enjoyed the free session that saw
prizes awarded for the best decorated eggs and cards, and a
number of Easter eggs won in a raffle.
Phillippa Johnson, who helped out with the event, said:
"Everyone was in the Easter spirit, and it was so much fun."
25 women took part in a safety class which helped to raise
awareness around female safety on the Westcliff estate.
Those who attended received a personalised self defence
and confidence lesson along with a personal alarm.
Emma Smith, tenant, said: "It was a really good day, and it
was nice to see people from the community come together
to learn how to stay safe."
