Stamping Out Boredom

Every year, Paragon housing trust organise 'Stamp Out Boredom', a Summer project that engages youngsters across Elmbridge in a range of activities over several weeks. The idea is to find constructive and fun things for youngsters to do, to stop them getting bored, or worse still in trouble. It also gives parents a bit of a break during the holidays.
This year, the youngsters delivered a presentation on the project, explaining what they have been getting up to - including canoeing, gardening, Cluedo, photography, graffiti art, climbing, team building exercises, and learning life skills like cookery.
Stamp Out Boredom is a brilliant project. I went along last Friday to hand out the certificates - as pictured below - and was really impressed with how much they packed in this year. My congratulations to Rachael Smart at Paragon, and her team, for organising another great program of events for the youngsters.
