The Ark Families Open Day

The Ark community project have been very busy this week as they, along with the RNRM Welfare team held a fun day at their community house on the Widewell Estate.

Here, project leader Jenn tells us all about the day:

"We had a fun day yesterday and were joined by the Gruffalo from the storybook waves team!

There was a sewing demo from Sue and Sam two parents who attend our project where they have been learning to sew, Sue is in the RAF and Sam is a military wife. We saw 60 people of all ages come throughout the day and Cdr. Filtness came to talk about the potential impact on families with the future move of the T class submarines to Faslane.
The welfare team wanted to facilitate a community consultation as to what people wanted to see them provide at the Community House on top of the Ark's current timetable. We had an ideas tree so people could write on post it leafs ideas for groups and activities. The children enjoyed playing in the garden and colouring and having their picture taken with the Gruffalo.

All washed down with cups of tea and oodles of cake!

A tiring but rewarding day!"
