Children are flying high following week of fun

Children with learning difficulties and disabilities got the chance to handle birds of prey at Camp Mohawk on Friday.

The children, who were on their half-term holidays, handled barn owls and other birds provided by Feathers and Fur at the Crazies Hill day centre for children with additional needs.

The Flying High Playscheme, provided by the Royal Borough’s learning difficulties and disabilities service, organised three days of activities from Wednesday last week to Friday.

They also went to the Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP), visited Odds Farm Park, and went swimming at the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead.

Suki Hayes, playscheme co-ordinator, said: “This gives them experiences away from their parents and carers and they interact with their friends and peers.

“They really enjoy the activities come rain or shine.”
