The Structured Activity Coordinator at FreshStart, Konny, has been keeping the residents busy with various art and crafts activities which they have been selling at local car boots and craft fairs in order to raise some funds to develop the garden here at FreshStart.

Living in such a beautiful part of the country, we have decided to take full advantage, carrying out regular beach combing activities and using the beach theme as inspiration for a lot of our work. It is getting the residents out, giving something back to the community by cleaning up the beaches and giving us lots of bits and pieces we can reuse, and sell on.

There is nothing as nice for the soul, as fresh sea air and sunshine and the residents have enjoyed getting out about and filling their time in a positive way. They can then use all they find back at FreshStart, “we are now beginning to stock pile sea glass, drift wood and various other bits pieces “ said Konny, “I am then trying to empower the residents to get their creative juices flowing – some of their ideas are brilliant”
