ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN IN SURREY AND HAMPSHIRE THIS SUMMER

June 15 2021

We're really excited to announce that Change of Scene will be running a Farmer for a Day Programme this summer for children in Surrey and Hampshire thanks to a grant from Social Farms & Gardens www.farmgarden.org.uk.

Spend a day with our team of Support Workers learning about our animals, seeing what we feed them, how they behave and how we look after them, as well as doing other activities such as crafts, sports and pond dipping!

The sessions will run from 02/08/21 – 14/08/21 and will be free of charge to young people aged 7+ who are eligible for free school meals, Pupil Premium or Social Services involvement in Surrey and Hampshire. To book a place, or for more information, please get in contact with our Children and Young People’s Service Manager, Vikki, on vikki@changeofscene.org.uk or call our office on 01252 794960. Lunch and transport to the site will not be provided. Spaces are limited.

Chris Blythe, Director at SF&G said “we’re delighted to be able to offer this funding to our members. While it’s been a very tough 12 months, our members have pulled out all the stops to support their local communities. It’s been encouraging to see the well-documented health benefits of getting outdoors and connecting with nature become more widely acknowledged, and the fantastic spaces cultivated by our members provide safe environments for everyone to enjoy. These grants will support children from disadvantaged backgrounds to enjoy the outdoors over the summer and will help local organisations across the UK have an even more positive impact in their communities.”
