Passion for Motorbikes Sees Learning Partnership Develop

Working together to provide learning opportunities for adults with autism we’ve partnered with Falcons Learning Centre.

The partnership sees those that are supported and cared for by Goldcrest House access the learning opportunities available at Falcons, a specialist school for people who find the formal educational system a barrier to their learning and development.

Providing supervised training and guidance after Falcons under 16 learners have gone home, Chris and Mark have been attending twice weekly tutored sessions in motor vehicle studies. Using a vocational based curriculum both have been working their way through two structured courses; Workshop Practice and Procedure and Stripping and Assembling and Four Stroke Engine, resulting in successful completion and commendations.

Steve Wash, Principal Falcons Learning ltd says: “I am delighted to be able to offer our guided learning to more members of the community, especially to our neighbours Goldcrest House. I am incredibly proud of Chris and Mark’s achievements and their enthusiasm. Both subjects have been incredibly hands on, especially the stripping and rebuilding of a very old Triumph Herald engine, which they completed with amazing competency.”

Trish Patrickson, Registered Manager at Goldcrest House says: “Such a dream come true for both Chris and Mark, it’s been a pleasure to see their enthusiasm and confidence grow as they learn new skills. It’s great to be able to recognise this achievement and we look forward to next stage in both their learning and development.”

Summertime Vibes at Goldcrest House

We’re embracing the fantastic summer we are having.

In-between the gales and rain showers the hot, hot sun inspires us to take to our beautiful garden, and get outdoors in our local community.

We’ve had a teddy bears picnic in the garden, gone out for speciality ice cream, ridden our bikes in the park, and even sold our unwanted items at a car boot sale. It’s active and it’s fun, we hope you’re having just as much fun as we are this summer.

Goldcrest House are Jubilee Ready

We’re ready at Goldcrest House for a Jubilee weekend to remember. We’ve decorated our home with the Union Jack flag in readiness for the Queen’s Jubilee weekend.

Putting to good use our arts and crafts activity sessions we used the time to paint our very own Union Jack flags and crowns. Take a look, hope you like them.

“We’ve gone all out on our Union Jacks. Join us in waving the flag this Jubilee weekend, we certainly will be.”

Tending our beautiful garden at Holland House, our sister house, and getting out to a local farm to see the cute little piglets, it’s all part of our enriched life here at Goldcrest House.
