RYKNELD HOMES, CHESTERFIELD
Partnership working is having a huge impact in Holmewood and Heath
Rykneld Homes is proud to be part of a fantastic partnership helping the local community in Holmewood and Heath.
Through the work undertaken by Holmewood and Heath Healthy Partnership Group, a group made up of agencies and members of the local community, new projects are providing fantastic new opportunities.
For example, 18 families took advantage of four free family fun sessions which were held during the summer holidays in Holmewood. The sessions included a wide range of activities including bird box making, healthy cooking workshops and circus skills.
The grand finale was a day trip to Pleasley Vale outdoor activity centre where the group cut their own wood to create a campfire, made healthy vegetable skewers to toast over the fire, as well as toasted marshmallows and chocolate bananas for dessert! The group also enjoyed an adventurous long boat experience in the river, a walk in the dark and teambuilding games.
One parent said “It helps to keep the kids active and gives us something to do as a family through the holidays. The sessions were really fun and it was great that they were local to us and didn’t cost us anything.”
