Heathfield International Day, partly funded by HeadStart through Heathfield Park Community Action Network, was a great success on Saturday 22nd July. The day was designed to bring together local people in the Heath Town area of the city to find out about local services, including HeadStart, and to have lots of fun; dancing, a gospel choir, face painting and more!
Our HeadStart Community Development Coordinator for the Heath Town / Park Village / Eastfield / Springfield / Old Heath area, Elaine Higgins, was joined by HeadStart Ambassadors Christina and Rebecca. They spoke to members of the public, shared details of the HeadStart Summer Programme (and HeadStart more generally), and sought views and ideas on the challenges of mental well-being in young people, and how local services can support them.
The HeadStart team were also delighted to be joined on the stand by The Mayor Of Wolverhampton, Councillor Elias Mattu, and the Mayoress Asha Mattu.
Our HeadStart newshounds for this area of the city, from Park Village Tuition Centre, were on hand to record interviews / vox pops and to take photos of the events of the afternoon.
The weather was kind, despite forecasts that predicted otherwise. A wonderful afternoon was had by all!
