Fun-filled half-term for children in Lache

Young people in Chester enjoyed a fun-filled half-term holiday taking part in activities organised by Sanctuary Housing and a host of community partners.

Sanctuary worked with Cheshire West and Chester Council, Lache Community Development Trust, Chester FC Community Trust and local police community support officers to offer a packed programme of events for children in Lache.

Pumpkin carving and den building were among the activities on offer during a well-attended open day at Lache Growing Space, while events at Sycamore Field offered the chance to learn football skills and play ‘football pool’, reaction games and Xbox.

A Halloween party organised by local volunteers also took place in The Venue at Lache Community Centre, with children dressing up in creepy costumes and enjoying lots of ghoulish games.

Libbie Stock, Sanctuary’s youth engagement officer, said: “The events were well-attended and it was great to see our young people enjoying being active during the school holiday.

“This has been a fantastic example of working in partnership and the benefits that brings for our residents.”

This project was part-funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
