HFT is 4 !!!

    🎉🎈👍 4 YEARS 👍🎈🎉

 

Wow, In September 2013 HFT hosted our first monthly meet-up and what a lot we have done in that four years. Aside from the regular activities at our current venue our children have had some great social, learning and fun experiences and pleased to say our parents have too 😁:

  • we have had 44 regular monthly meet-ups
  • ran an 8 session social skills course
  • visited all local trampoline parks (some more than once)
  • Ran a ten week ‘film makers’ course and invited parents and friends to the movie premier for ‘Time Flies’ – the fantastic short film our group created
  • played 10-pin bowling
  • practiced baking skills
  • made pizzas
  • became chocolatiers for a day
  • Visited by a researcher of primary-secondary education transition to hear feedback and gain info/tips
  • enjoyed team-building activities at Challenge4Change
  • held  and learnt about a variety of animals courtesy of Animal Ash
  • had several theatre trips
  • had a road safety session hosted by GMP
  • ran a speech and language course
  • ran a 6 weeks art / craft course
  • had visits from Occupational Therapists
  • Ran a ten week Mindfulness course for parents
  • visted the CBBC tour with lots of interactive opportunities
  • ran a course of ‘fit-tastic’ activies to help with co-ordination
  • had many coffee mornings and mums meals out
  • we have also been running weekly karate sessions for over a year and a half with children achieving red belts and soon to try for yellow.

Hmmmm, haven’t we been busy?!

A massive thank you to George who has managed to secure funding to enable us to do all of the above.

If anyone has suggestions for activites next year please email Michelle at hftrafford@outlook.com

Our committee: Jayne, George, Michelle & Fiona would like to say how proud we all are of what we have achieved so far and a big thank you to all involved – funders, venues, third party providers, volunteers but especially our children & parent members. It’s been great to get to know so mnay people, some of which have been attending from day one, and to see the children and parents alike form new friendships.
