The Lads – 7th September 2017

We had a lovely afternoon at The Hut and were entertained by The  Lads, everyone had a great time and there was singing and dancing by everyone.

Th Lads have visited us now 3 times and each time our members really enjoy seeing them, asking when will they be coming back.

A great afternoon, see you again soon!the lads 2 the lads1

As a small thank you we presented them with a ‘Hut Made’ clock

Kind words from Jack…

My volunteering at The Hut was the leading job on my CV and I believe I would not have even been given the chance to attend the interview without having my time at The Hut as part of my key experiences. Even though I have only been volunteering for a short period of time, I have really really enjoyed every single second. I wanted to say a massive thank you for giving me a chance and welcoming me into your organisation with open arms. Both yourself and Jonny made me feel like a regular from my first session and I really appreciated that, and it only made me enjoy my experience volunteering for The Hut more and more with each session. In truth one of the hardest things about accepting the job was knowing that I wouldn’t be able to come to The Hut anymore and be a part of all the wonderful things you do, I will miss yourself, Jonny, and everyone at The Hut greatly, I will especially miss all the Wednesday game-day regulars who I have built an overwhelming rapport with over the past four months. My hope is that once I move offices to York I can pop in during the week for small periods of time to check in and stay connected with the incredible work going on at The Hut. Once again, thank you. I definitely would not be writing this email without having my experience volunteering at The Hut, it has been an short but integral part of my journey and I will always look back on it fondly.

We wish Jack all the best and we will miss him very much – Emma, Project Manager

My Journey Summer Trip

It was our trip today in ‘My Journey’ it was decided upon a trip on the river and a picnic in Museum Gardens. There was planning, budgeting and a ‘healthy picnic’ all skills we have developed this term. Although the sun wasn’t shining the weather was ok and we all had so much fun it didn’t matter!
A thank you to City Cruises York for giving us discount and helping us budget and for a very enjoyable cruise along the river.
Well done to all our members who attend ‘My Journey’ and a big thank you to Becca and Georgie too!boat trip 4

Gardening Project

The weather might be a little miserable outside, that didn’t dampen our gardening group, we finished off part 1 of our gardening project outside. A big thank you from everyone at Deans Garden Centre for the donation of plants – they look fab and thank you to Rod Drake for getting us the tyres that the members have decorated.
In a few weeks we will see lots of colour outside, pop over and have a look we’d love to see you!outside1outside 2outside 3outside 4

We had a very special visitor 24th March 2017

We had a very special visitor pop in and see us on Friday the 24th he was surprising Cheryl Pratt from The Graver a care home situated not far from The Hut.  The Gravers residents often attend sessions at The Hut and thought it would be lovely to ask Peter Andre to come and see what we did.

He made the day of one members in particular who attends our service and she had been a big fan of his for so long, he was a real gentleman and posed for photos, spoke to all the members and staff and we are extremely grateful for him doing that.

Congratulations to Cheryl on your surprise and thank you for sharing him with The Hut.

Thank you Peter for being so nice, you will always be welcome to come back and see us!

Kind regards,

Emma
