Redwoods Summer Festival page thumbnail

It was an opportunity for inpatients, staff, visitors, families and friends to come along and enjoy a variety of really good live music, creative arts activities, artists stalls with wonderful wares for sale, refreshments – lovely cakes made by the Trust – and of course….ice cream!! provided by Dairy Dreams of Churchstoke – we can highly recommend!

Arts for Health staff with ice cream trays We were so lucky with the weather – bright and sunny and definitely warm…people enjoyed the vibe of the afternoon and didn’t really want to leave at the end!! We are hugely grateful to our wonderful musicians that afternoon, the Facilities and Estates staff who helped enormously, our AHP colleagues and other staff for supporting and everyone who came along on the day!!  

It was nice to have our Mental Health Director, Cathy Riley open the event and for our acting Chair, JackieMusicians playing at the festival Small to be with us and say a few words – thank you. Will we do one again next year??? I think the answer is yes!!
