Stockport Homes Group and the local communities have celebrated the summer holidays in style – with events and activities to keep young people busy and occupied.
Cooking up a storm with the ever popular ‘Holiday Kitchen’ project at Brinnington and Adswood – over a hundred families and children learnt new recipes, and some top tips for cooking at home. School holidays often place extra pressure on household budgets, and 70% of the families attending said that the sessions had helped them to save money on food during the holidays.
Other events included crafts and adventure activities – with 83% of parents saying that the planned activities reduced stress during the break, with feedback including “Thanks so much for making the last three weeks of the holidays so varied and enjoyable. Really would've been lost without it and is has really helped financially and made my son happy.”
Jenny Osborne, Chair of SHG says
Supporting communities to come together, get to know each other and learn new skills is something that we are really pleased to support. For tenants to live in communities where they have positive relationships and networks. It’s great to see such positive feedback and know how much of a difference the summer project has made to families.
