Highbridge update
During August Highbridge was lucky enough to have the Red Cross visit and deliver a course. It was well attended and now they all know how to save a life! They also had a dog walk through Apex park, with Yogi, Frankie and Leon. All attendees were very well behaved!
The Zing cookery sessions are in full swing, they have been making pizza, ratatouille, fruit smoothies and there’s veggie chilli to be made next week.
There have been some great stories coming out of Highbridge individuals too. Three people have applied for jobs and are awaiting results, Lisa has lost nearly three stone, Rodney is doing over 80,000 steps on average per week.
The digital college is a great success. There are a lot of people doing courses that will set them up for future employment and others are being helped along the way with understanding mental health issues. However, it’s not only the online courses for mental health and wellbeing, but during September there is a 12-step anxiety course running.
