Trip to London Natural History Museum 

Young people from Clacton and Jaywick were invited to Londons Natural History Museum. All the young people chatted and laughed with each other and staff on the minibus. This trip was aimed at 11 years and older due to the length of traveling and walking. We split up into small groups this meaning the young people from both areas were interacting with each other. The Museum was enjoyed by all and many of the young people took pictures and showed interest in the exhibits. We then took a walk up to Buckingham Palace where they were just finishing changing the guards. The young people were interested in the statues and were asking questions about the area. The police horses were noticed and questions were asked by the young people. On the bus ride home the young people were quieter due to the long day but content and happily interacting with each other and staff.

Splash Park Trip

Today the IV staff took a selection of children under the age of 12, from Jaywick and Clacton to the Splash Park by the pier.
All seemed to really get along well and enjoyed a few hours of running around and playing in the water, the weather was warm albeit a little cloudy which delivered a comfortable atmosphere for an outdoor session.
Afterwards, we stopped and sat along the sea wall for packed lunches and then went for Icecream.
The children were well behaved throughout the day, even for the walk back to the starting point.

Clip and Climb Trip

Young people from Clacton and Jaywick took part in this climbing activity. The young people really threw themselves into the climbing showing enthusiasm and courage. All the young people worked the clip harnesses well after learning how to use them before entering the climbing area. Three of our young people who had not met each other before showed immense courage choosing to do the ‘leap of faith’. All of the young people said they would love to go there again. They enjoyed a McDonalds on the way home.

Clacton Beach Trip

We hired a beach hut at the local beach. We provided a walking bus and the young people walked with staff. We were joined by two mums also. The weather was not perfect with a few occasional showsers, this did not stop all the young people and the mum of two that joined us from enjoying the sea. We had fresh wraps, crisps and treats for lunch and was enjoyed by everyone. Lots of laughing, chatting and interacting with all. The two parents enjoyed their time with their children and commented on how nice it was to see their kids playing with their friends.

We were joined by the Flying Seagulls in Clacton and Jaywick. Both communities enjoyed the shows and activities provided. There was tightrope walking, plate spinning, trapeze, diablos, juggling and may more. There was a magic show, entertainment show throughout the day. Many families joined in together with all activities and some old school games such as British bulldog. There was much talk about how both communities would really like The Flying Seagulls to visit again.

Jaywick Beach Trip

We took 11 young people from Jaywick to the beach. We had access to a beach hut from CVST.

The young people really enjoyed the water playing and splashing about with each other. Staff were in the water also with the YPs keeping them safe and playing games with them. We had a sandcastle competition that was enjoyed by all and was noticed favorably by passersby.

The YPs all enjoyed the day and some did not want to leave the water enjoying their time so much. Food and drink was provided and the YPs ate well. Two parents join us at the beach with younger siblings, engaging well with staff and YPs enjoying their day.

Curvewake Trip

Clacton and Jaywick young people were invited. The two Yps from Jaywick that attended have not been on an activity with us before. These two young lads really enjoyed themselves and got on very well with the other young people. They requested to go on some of our other summer holiday activities that are coming up.

One of the young people was very apprehensive about getting into the water. With support from the staff and the other YPS he managed to get into the water and enjoy the inflatables. The young people all rode their bikes well and safely.

Essex Police Positive Action

We also got to have a tour of the custody suite, meet the police dogs, fire arms offices and watched a display of drones used for track and search operations.
All participants were interested, asked engaging questions and were a real credit to themselves.  They were also able to express their feelings that they felt judged and looked down on by other people present at the day because of the way they dressed and acted.  IV staff were able to reassure them that it was due to a lack of understanding of their situations and it is this which causes tensions within and of different communities.  We also explained that this was part of the bigger of picture of division within our society, as conveyed in the poem by Quinton Green – “I am Humanity”.

Football Rounders Day

We took children from the Clacton and Jaywick area to rush green playing field to do a range of multi sports. We played Robbery, frisbee, kick rounders. They had enjoyed the range of sports that we had set out for them during the time we had been there. They worked well in their teams. These had been new games introduced to the children during this time. Jaywick and Clacton worked well together joining up on the games. A few young people were enjoying their social time together and they all joined in. We had individual lunches for each child which included a wrap, fruit and a savoury snack, and bottles of water were provided. A couple was not interested but staff had spent time with those individuals.

Lazertag Trip

What a fantastic location, outside in the countryside with a massive field to play in.  The were loads of obstacles and the lazer guns were excellent quality.
The hosts were really down to earth and very welcoming of us, offering for us to stay as long as we liked, even though we had only paid for 1 hour we stayed for 3. Staff were able to join in and it finished with a YP versus staff competition.  The rounds lasted just 10minutes each and they were varied in the rules and aims, which gave all the YP a chance to do well.  At the end of each round, the YP were pulled together and the results were shared, giving them a chance to receive congratulations. It also motivated the YP to try hard in the next game

BMX Trip

It is excellent to give the YP a taster of BMX riding at a dedicated track, especially as there is one to be built within our area for our YP to use on a regular basis. 
Jules is an excellent instructor who can work with YP of any level. He is engaging and able to have a laugh with the YP, tells them stories to inspire them and encourages each one to have a go and not worry if they don’t get it right.

Dementia Awareness Day January 2019

Anthony our Chef once again collaborated with the local fire station to reach out to couples coping with dementia. Seniors that had not been permitted to prepare meals for their partners since the onslaught of their disease cooked in the safety of the fire station with our Chef and sat and ate together.

Christmas, December 2018

A selection of pics from Xmas celebrations:
So proud of local lad Billy who organised a beautiful festive Santa grotto from his Nan's home in Brooklands. All proceeds went to hospital that has supported his little brother Sonny. 
We had a traditional Xmas meal this year bringing two generations together, our children and seniors from our Jaywick community Cafe
