New Activity Programme for people with disabilities/special needs aged 16yrs+

The Albrighton Trust is looking for people with disabilities, special needs and/or learning difficulties from the age of 16 upwards who would like to challenge themselves by learning something new and engaging in healthy, creative activity within the tranquil setting of the Albrighton Moat and Gardens. The ‘Look, Make, Do’ programme aims to help participants understand nature through the medium of art and creativity. Participants will learn about certain aspects of the natural world; develop practical skills through making and doing; observe and experience the nature around them; enhance their creativity and imagination skills and produce objects and art work inspired by nature.  

Sessions will run from 10am to 3pm every Tuesday in term time starting on the 20th of September. The programme costs £7.50 per session paid in advance for the term. Participants will need to bring a packed lunch and dress appropriately for both indoor and outdoor work. For more information go to
