Theme Four: Summer

As the summer and warm weather(hopefully!) rolls around, there is much opportunity to be inspired by the things around us.

Your summer activities

As the summer and warmer weather (hopefully!) rolls around, there is much opportunity to be inspired by the things around us.

The first thing you can observe, as we finally step outside, is the abundance of colour – from the fresh tropical fruits to the flowers in our gardens to the nature of our parks.

As ever, we want to encourage everyone to share with us any resources or activities that you have found helpful and suggestions or ideas about what might be helpful to you and your family at this time. Please send your ideas and suggestions to Fiona Clark on fionaclark@stoswaldsuk.org and Carole Taylor on caroletaylor@stoswaldsuk.org

Thank you and we hope you find some enjoyment and support from these resources.

Share you photos with us!

We have a dedicated Focus on Living Centre gallery where we would love to display your creations.

Please email your photos over to either Fiona Clark or Carole Taylor and we will add them to the gallery.
