Family fun at

The Arc

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."

Safety event

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."
