Haunted Hanwood hosts Halloween Community Event

1-3pm, Friday 31 October, Hanwood Village Hall

This Friday, Severnside Housing is inviting local residents to pop in to Hanwood Village Hall for a Halloween themed community event.

Along with food and refreshments, there will be spooky entertainment with art and craft activities, horrible face-painting and a fancy dress competition for both adults and little scary monsters otherwise known as children!

It’s also an opportunity to find out about some of the services Severnside Housing provides. There will be information about how to get involved in the community as well as employment and money advice, and family and support services.

It’s also a way for Severnside to stay involved with the community and identify any areas of concern. There will be a number of partnering agencies attend who work together offering different support mechanisms, such as

  •          Resident inspectors will offer information on affordable warmth and fuel poverty.
  •          Severnside’s Community team will be promoting their Learning programme.
  •          The Job Centre, the Prince’s Trust Shropshire Rural Community Council and the Community Development Team will all deliver Employment, Training and volunteering focused at engaging with and raising awareness of the number of opportunities that are available to people from all ages, including educational programmes.
  •          Severnside’s Employment and Money Advice Team will be promoting money advice along with partners such as C.A.B, Fairshare and Just Credit union. This will include with budgeting, debt advice and obtaining affordable loans.
  •          The local Policing Team will provide advice and information on Anti-Social Behaviour and Substance Misuse advice to ensure that the community are aware of who to contact and how to deal with these types of issues.
  •          School Welfare and Family advice will be provided by partners such as Shropshire Education Welfare Officer and The Family Information Services.

All partnering agencies will provide interactive information stands and activities throughout the day.
