Craft Night

We decorated bags, made mobiles, and decorated transparent sheets.

These butterflies will look lovely attached to a window with the sun streaming through them – if we have any sun – which seems a distant memory in this gloomy February.

What could be better than a little creative activity to raise our spirits.

Crafts Day at Hounslow Phab

We filled the minibus with enthusiastic crafters, and went to spend a day at Hounslow Phab.

We could make bunnies,

or cards,

or decorated bags – as well as picture fames, jewellery and a host of other options.

It was also good to meet up with our friends from other Phab clubs.

Craft Night

Decorating Picture frames. and other items – some with an Easter theme, some as gifts for Mothers Day and some just for fun.



We had quite a few roses left over from Alendra Rose Day and here they are used to decorate a bag

Phab South East Fun Weekend – Sunday

After breakfast and an optional, but well attended and inspiring Morning Worship session, we went into a Team Building activity.

We worked in teams, Oxford Phab had the assistance of the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association, and given supplies of cake, swiss roll, chocolate buttons, fondant icing, icing sugar and similar ingredients and told to construct something related to a season.

wp-1448189754034This is not a snowman – once coloured in this will be a maypole dancer !

wp-1448192033873Here is the final result – there is a maypole, complete with dancers – one in a wheelchair, a cake stall and a coconut shy – for added realism the coconuts are glued to the stands !

wp-1448192414437Other groups made a bonfire, a snowman, a ski scene and other seasonal themes, but after much deliberation ours was declared the best !!!

wp-1448192808870For added realism our spring fête ended in a washout !

We finished the event with presentations and lunch, and then went home on the minibus.
