Throughout our year here at enable we have plenty of special events that give our learners the chance to let their hair down and have a bit of fun.
Christmas is always a special time at Enable. Our garden area is decorated with outdoor displays giving a real festive feel and the past few years we have even had a sleigh and reindeers with guest appearances from Santa ! Our Christmas lunch is always a big hit with the learners, and if they can still move after their three-course dinner a disco is available for them to boogie the afternoon away. We also hold a Christmas Party for learners, carers and staff. This is held away from Enable at a local venue. Our learners receive their certificates for all their work throughout the year here too.
We love to celebrate Halloween by holding an scary evening buffet and disco where fancy dress is a must. During the run up to Halloween learners and staff make scary decorations and carve out pumpkins. Learners also get the chance to help bake and decorate “spook”tacular cakes and jellies ready for the party. The party is always well attended and loved by both learners, carers and staff.
We always love to have a party and activities around Easter time. Weather permitting we have a BBQ, an Easter egg hunts, games and of course a disco. The past few years our learners have also loved taking part in an Easter Bonnet competition, where prizes are handed out for the most creative hat. This year we even had a Bonnet Catwalk where each learner strutted their stuff up a Catwalk to show off their hat and their best moves.
A short trip to a local park and a bootfull of sports equipment gives us one of Enable's most fun days of the year. Whether it be throwing beanbags, sack racing or football games all our learner make the most of (hopefully) being out in the summer sun and join in with as many activities as they can.
Learning about and celebrating multi cultural events has become a part of Enable. Our learners love to learn about how people from different places and cultures live their lives and celebrate special days and different festivals.
