Santa has arrived at Paradise Wildlife Park!

Written by

SANTA CLAUS and CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAYRE at PARADISE!

 

Santa Arrives 4Santa Claus arrived at Paradise Wildlife Park/Zoological Society of Hertfordshire (ZSH) in Broxbourne Woods on Saturday 18th November but not with the usual reindeers.

 

With a sleigh pulled by snow white horses, Santa was greeted by hundreds of happy families before opening the Paradise Christmas Craft Fayre, joining his reindeer in the Park and taking his place in his magical Christmas Grotto!

With over 20 stalls, Paradise’s Christmas Craft Fayre, was a great way to discover all sorts of wonderful Christmas goodies while the children tried their hands at decorating gingerbread!

 

Santa is at Paradise every weekend (from Saturday 18th November) and then every day from the 16th December until Christmas Eve. He will be in his Grotto from 11:30am – 1.00pm and 2.30pm – 4:00pm. But hurry, he’s in demand, so please book your place as soon as possible. Tickets cost £4.50 each and can be booked now on the Paradise Wildlife Park website: www.pwpark.com (everyone who visits Santa will, of course, receive a present – if they’ve been good of course).

(Private group bookings can also be arranged, please call: 01992 470490 or email info@pwpark.com).

Christ Church Southgate

Christ Church Southgate's Christmas Tree festival is taking a break this year, back next year, but we will be having a gift tree. This year the tree will support Young Carers in Enfield. The tree will contain tags with names and gift requests. People will be asked to take a tag from the tree and buy the gift and return it to church, so that we can pass on the gifts to young carers via the Mayor's Charity "Enfield Cares". The Gift Tree will be put up on Advent Sunday 3rd December. Last year's Gift Tree (supporting Coram children) was a great success and we appreciated all the support from LYDS Community members. Keep a track of our website at the end of this month for more information and the list of names and gift requests. www.christchurch-southgate.org

Fitness Vibe Appeal for the Homeless

This is something we have done in the past and this year we want it to be an even bigger event and help even more people.

No matter what our personal circumstances and troubles are, the chances are that if you are reading this you are lucky to have the basic creature comforts, food to eat, clothes on your backs, a roof over your head and someone to talk to.

Unfortunately, many people are not so fortunate and have to brave the cold London air day in, day out.

Christmas for many of us is where we are surrounded by friends and family, but so many are alone, cold and forgotten.

In the months of November and December we usually do something in aid of a charity.

Although we are told we are making a difference, we rarely see what impact we make and how our contributions really make a difference.

So we want to invite all our instructors, participants and their friends and family to join us for a pre-Christmas 'Fitness Vibe Appeal for the Homeless' event.

We will hit the streets of London on Sunday 10th December to show those who live rough and go without basic amenities, that they do matter and people do care.

We will prepare food bags to distribute to them along with clothing and doggy bags for their furry companions.

However, we want to go that little bit further and this is where we need your help.

Previous experience has taught us that they travel light, but really appreciate the small things that will keep them fed, warm and clean.

So we are appealing for the following items which we will begin collecting straight away:

* Small packets of tissues
* Hand sanitisers
* Hats
* Scarves
* Thermal gloves
* Thermal socks
* Knitwear
* Toothpaste
* Toothbrushes
* Lightweight blankets
* Sleeping bags
* Dog food (self opening cans) or mixers and treats

We also need:

* Self-sealing bags for food
* Silver dishes with lids or plastic food containers
* Plastic cutlery

* chocolate
* individual wrapped snacks or biscuits
* food/snacks

Many of us have these things already at home - could you kindly have a little rummage through and donate to this worthy cause?

If this is something that you would love to participate in but have already thrown these items out - we will gladly purchase these items on your behalf so will instead happily accept a donation of £5, £10 or even more, which will go directly towards purchasing these basic essentials and food supplies.

Most of all, we would love volunteers to assist us in the preparations and more importantly the distribution.

We have all made such an impact on each other, let's do this for those less fortunate

Please contact Akile or you Fitness Vibe Instructor to arrange how you can forward on your contributions

We will congregate early afternoon / evening on the Sunday 10th December (approx 3:30pm) to make all preparations. Venue to be confirmed
(Highlands not available)

Thank you

Patrick Samuel - ESCAPE and RETURN


 
PatrickSamuel EscapeReturn PosterESCAPE and RETURN - An exhibition by Patrick Samuel
 
7 November 2017– 2 December 2017
Dugdale, 39 London Road, Enfield, EN2 6DS
 

About the exhibition
 
Marking one year of his creative journey, ESCAPE and RETURN is Patrick Samuel’sfirst solo exhibition.Patrick is an artist with Asperger’s Syndrome.  Having returned to art after a 20-year break, he picked up painting and drawing again whenhe started his daily art therapy in December 2016. A time of prolific work as well as recognition followed, and Patrick has embraced his neurodiversity as a gift rather than seeing it as a disability; he’s found his
voice and his calling.
 
Art has changed Patrick’s life for the better, not least thanks to the overwhelming support of the community in Enfield.  Many residents have helped him with art materials, frames and canvasses, and local art fairs have provided him with a place to present his work and practice social skills, something very
important to a person on the autistic spectrum.
 
His first solo exhibition wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Dugdale Centre, the sponsorship of businesses both local and national, and the backers on Kickstarter, many of whom are Enfield residents as well.
 
Patrick has produced an extensive portfolio in a wide range of genres and media. He is stimulated by bold, contrasting colours, intricate details, multiple textures, and varying shades of light and dark.
Patrick is working primarily with pastels, graphite pencils and acrylics but he also enjoys experimenting with water colours, glass and oil paints.
 
ESCAPE and RETURN stands for Patrick’s story so far.
In his own words:
"Art is my medium of escape; from the noise, the lights, the fumes and the constant stream of information. It’s deafening and blinding. The pushing and the shoving, the race to get everywhere first and have everything now.
I want it all to stop.  Painting and drawing lets me soar past the planets, where I can let my hands glide across the stars as I say goodbye to it all. Watch it fade away. And I do get that far when I realise how much I’d leave behind back on Earth; the trees, the sound of laughter and the colour of sound, the colourable real, the mythical and fantastic. I realise how much I’d miss it all. How much I’d miss you...
This is my return."

Self Care Week

Self Care Week

 

 

• Self care week encourages people to look after their own health and live more independently
• Enfield Council’s AskSARA initiative has a range of information and aids to promote independent living
• Helping people to Independent living in their own homes but also reduces demand on health and social services Residents, neighbours, carers, friends and family are being urged to use the free AskSARA online service during Self Care Week, (13 – 19 November), to enable people of ages to more lead independent lives. Self Care week encourages people to look after their own health and live more independently so that there is less chance they will need care and unnecessary hospital admissions. AskSARA is a free service accessed through Enfield Council’s website, which was developed by The Disabled Living Foundation and guides users to a range of useful devices and advice which will help to improve their quality of life and make it easier do tasks such as cooking, bathing, taking medication and chores. Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Health & Social Care, Cllr Alev Cazimoglu, said: “We’re committed to promoting fairness for all, and encouraging people who want to live independently in their own homes is an important part of that commitment. “AskSARA is a brilliant way of supporting independent living amongst people with disabilities and older people because it helps in identifying their needs and then suggesting ways of meeting those needs.

“AskSARA covers more than 70 topics that are grouped under broad headings such as health, home and children. Within each heading there are categories that focus on AskSARAspecific aids – and users can answer questions to help them identify their concerns across all aspects of life. “I hope people of all ages will find AskSARA helpful.”

Typical users of the service include family members and carers who are keen to find the type of equipment that can improve the quality of their loved ones’ lives and help them to live independently.

AskSARA’s advice has been written by the Disabled Living Foundation’s team of occupational therapists and all of the content is governed by the NHS’s Information Standard.

Live links also take users to Europe’s largest database of assistive technology products – with details of over 14,000 products from over 900 manufacturers and suppliers.

Users of the service can also complete feedback reports that signpost them to services from handyman and trader schemes to falls prevention and energy efficiency details. You can access AskSARA at http://asksara.dlf.org.uk/?auth=enfield
