"Play is an essential part of a child's life and vital to their development.
It is the way children explore the world around them and develop and practice their skills.
It is essential for physical, emotional and spiritual growth, for intellectual and emotional development, and acquiring social and behavioural skills."
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
This is the time of year to say Seasons Greetings, and a very big thankyou to all our users and supporters throughout the year.
It has been a challenging year for all and will be for some time still. This year especially we at Glamis APG / Shadwell Community Project have experienced the tremendous ways in which Shadwell has pulled together to help local residents, businesses and charities within the local community.
Covid- 19 has ripped through our communities but we have all helped each other (in all our many ways), to be able to stand strong in the face of adversity.
As we wave a welcome goodbye to 2020, we look forward to 2021 with hope for a prosperous, brighter and healthier year ahead.
Important Notice !!!
To all parents/users, SCP will stop delivering family sessions from Saturday 12th December 2020.
From 4th January 2021 major building works will commence on site. Works are estimated to take up to 5 weeks which will take us to Mid-February 2021. Any updates on this will be posted on our website and our social media pages, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
During this time staff will keep in touch with members and deliver play parcels.
As we all know The Covid pandemic has meant that most funding opportunities have been re-directed towards the Covid effort and small charities like ours have not been able to apply for or receive usual available funding. Needless to say, January 2021 will be financially a difficult time.
