Stratton Community Art Group
Supported by Stratton St Margaret Parish Council
From their facebook page:
“Lots of lovely work going on yesterday at the Art Group plus fun and laughter, tea coffee and biscuits! What's not to like! Every Monday drop in 9.30 until 12noon.
This group meets weekly on Monday and are working on a project on canal art to produce calendars and notelets with a group of 12 adults looking to engage more with their community.
WBCT involvement started with the 2016 WBCT review and a brief of Pewsham programme Heritage Heroes. Plans are being made to have an art day on Dragonfly in the summer and a day out visiting the Heritage Heroes canal site near Chippenham.
40+ Years of Dedicated Community Support in the Swindon area and much more to come…
The charity was formed in 1974 and the name has evolved over time in line with the developing services.
In April 2016 SWADS made the decision to return to its core strengths and values. In line with our new vision for SWADS we have changed our name to Supporting Wellbeing and Developing Stability which we feel better reflects the new direction. This incorporates not only addiction but anything that may be affecting health and wellbeing on any level. We recognise that everyone has different needs, therefore all clients have an initial personal assessment and a tailored care plan to support their wellbeing.
We have truly exciting plans for the future to provide new and enhanced services for the Community we serve
WBCT are proud to be working with SWADS in a programme looking at canal art and its folk tradition as part of their work with their clients.
Plans are being made to have an art day on Dragonfly in the summer and a day out visiting the Heritage Heroes canal site near Chippenham.
