PUPILS, parents and staff from a Kidderminster school visit Home-Start Wyre Forest's offices recently to see the results of a partnership art project.

The children and their parents from Heronswood Primary School enjoyed an afternoon tea, as the art work was unveiled as a lasting display in the charity's meeting room.

The art work also forms an online album display on Home-Start Wyre Forest's Facebook page.

The project was funded by Wyre Forest District Council's Xpression Grant scheme.

Belinda Darby, Home-Start manager, said: "What a fantastic display the children have created us around the meaning of family, which is so fitting for a permanent display in our organisation and we have been blown away by the talent and creativity they have shown during this project.

"We are so grateful to the team at Heronswood and WFDC for enabling us to do this and enjoy the lasting results for years to come."

Lesley Fox, community development manager, said: "It was very enlightening to see the children's interpretations of what family means to them.

"The district council's funding has been beneficial in developing relationships with their teachers, as well as stimulating conversations within their own families. We have been very pleased to be able to support this project."

The children were supported in the project by staff members Amy Dobson and Helen Mikolajczyk, who joined the children to celebrate their success.

Mrs Dobson added: "The children were very excited to see their work displayed in a professional way.

"Home-Start hosted a wonderful afternoon tea for the children and their families, which was enjoyed by all."
