Swimming Hoist 22 Nov 2016
We are a locally based disabled swimming club and have been established for 40 years. Our members are people of all ages and with all kinds of disabilities, ranging from people recovering from injuries (eg broken bones) to those with severe lifelong disabilities including multiple sclerosis, which mean they cannot move unaided. We meet every Sunday morning at Sale Leisure Centre. The pool has a hoist to enable swimmers to enter and leave the pool, but we now have a growing number of more severely disabled members who find this hoist difficult or impossible for them to use, as they cannot sit up straight. At present in order to help these members access the pool it takes 8 of our adult able-bodied volunteers to use an alternative and fully manual method, which involves installing an additional piece of equipment to the current hoist, consisting of a slider bar and sling. This takes a lot of time and eight adult volunteers for each disabled person. This in turn means that these volunteers are taken away from helping our other members (including blind members who need constant escorting) so precious session time is lost. In order to solve this problem and provide the best access and most enjoyable session for all, we need to obtain and install a higher specification of hoist. We have conducted research and identified that the product which meets our needs is the market-leading Joerns ‘Oxford Dipper’. This specialist hoist is designed for use in swimming pools and recognised as a safe method of allowing access to the water for severely disabled people. It has a weight capacity of 22 stone and needs just one able-bodied person to operate. Havin the hoist will make a great difference to our disabled members. It will mean that everyone including the most severely disabled will be able to benefit from doing a ‘normal’ leisure activity that may be taken for granted by able-bodied people. By doing so they will be able to socialise; to gain confidence; to gain
‘Playing Outside’ 09 Mar 2017
Past experience has shown us that family activity days are the best way to encourage inter-generational groups to come into the park, so we would like to run such a day this summer; the theme would be ‘Playing Outside’. We want people to see what a great asset the park is, experience it in a positive way and discover how how safe and looked after it is. For the young people there would be a nature trail, scavenger hunt and games. For adults there would be a display of work that the Friends Group are doing in partnership with Stockdales and Trafford One, as well as an introduction to the wildlife found in the park. As a result of attending the event we hope more adults will start to walk, and children will come to play, in the park. The event will take place in the park, the woods and the pavilion and will involve twelve to fifteen volunteers who are friends of the park, plus specialists to run some attractions; it should attract over a hundred participants. Over the long -term we want an increase in the number of people walking in the park or coming with children to play, picnic or use the pitch and putt.
COMMUNITY EASTER EVENT 09 Mar 2017
Building on the success of previous community events, we hope to put on a fun, interactive and free event around the theme of Easter using various media including art and drama. The plan is to create different zones using volunteer actors and props to engage families by encouraging participation in the drama themselves (i.e. being part of a crowd as the main actors enact the story). There will also be themed craft activities, refreshments and a bouncy castle. In addition, contemporary art posters placed around the centre, will creatively tell the story in a way to engage adults.
