During the summer holidays, at HOPS we try and make the days exciting and enjoyable.

There had been a number of requests for animals, so this year we had a visit from Gemma’s Farm.

It was a lovely summer day and the children enjoyed getting up close with the animals.

There were so many lovely photos that you will find 3 posts.


Monday 1st August the children had a visit from Coco the pony and Lucy the dog.

Jan from French’s Equine Rehabilitation Centre, bought Coco and Lucy  from the care farm to meet the children at HOPS.

Some times we all feel like just relaxing and chilling out.

Many of the children who attend HOPS choose to do this in the sensory room.
