Wonderland fun for young tenants

Twenty-six young people enjoyed a festive mini-camp learning new creative skills and having fun.

The ‘Winter Wonderland’ day was the latest get-together organised by Incommunities to build closer links with younger tenants.

Under the guidance of some of Incommunities’ trades professionals the youngsters, aged 8 to 16, made wooden memory and money boxes at the group’s construction training base at Hillam Road.

They also played indoor rugby, enjoyed a quiz and had lunch together. The fun-packed day was rounded off with a flying visit from Santa Claus.

All the young people had previously attended the West Yorkshire Police summer camps and the ‘Make It Happen’ sports camp for girls held at the Provident Stadium (home of the Bradford Bulls) in August.

Adrienne Reid, Incommunities’ Assistant Chief Executive, Neighbourhoods, said: “The day has been great fun and the young people have really enjoyed learning basic building skills as well as working together in teams.

“It’s been a fabulous way of rounding off a busy 2015 which has seen Incommunities staff working together with partners, including the Bradford Bulls, West Yorkshire Police and Bradford College, to inspire the lives of some of our younger customers.

“We are keen to build closer links across our communities and the feedback from those here today has been very positive.”

Taylor Myers, aged 12 from Keighley said: “Making the boxes was great fun and I really enjoyed myself. I can’t wait for Christmas now. ”
