Halloween Half Term Fun
We’ve been helping kids get their doors ready for trick or treaters this Halloween. Our nominated charity, Groundwork West Midlands, have been holding a series of free play sessions for kids in the borough as part of their Let’s Play Sandwell events during October Half Term.
Let’s Play Sandwell offers free environmental activities aimed at children aged between 6 and 12 years old, and any children up to the age of 16 with additional needs. During October Half Term the Let’s Play Sandwell team have been facilitating sessions including seasonal themed arts and crafts, sports and general free games including pumpkin carving at parks and venues across the region.
When the charity recently asked us at Latham’s if we were able to support the sessions, we were only too pleased to help. Let’s Play Sandwell Community Project Officer, Jenna Small said, ‘We wanted to offer pumpkin carving at our latest series of half term sessions, and thanks to a donation from Latham’s Steel Doors we were able to make this happen’. Kids from all over the region having been joining in the fun and carving some spooktacular pumpkins, along with taking part in archery, crafts and a treasure hunt.
Managing Director of Latham’s, Alex Latham said ‘Groundwork West Midlands do some fantastic work in the region and as one of our nominated charities for 2018, we’re really pleased to be able to offer support to these sessions in the local community’.
During their event at Tividale Park we thought we’d head over to the park and check out some of their fantastic creations for ourselves:
