Thank you to all those volunteers who have given their time helping in our community, who have earned Medway Time Credits taking part in the opportunities we have provided i.e regular litter picks, helping out at our seasonal awareness events.
They then exchanged these Medway Time Credits for tickets to attend a day we had organised for a trip to Diggerland. For more information on Medway Time Credits and how to get involved visit http://www.justaddspice.org/programme/medway-time-credits
On the day we were greeted by Jonny from Spice Time Credits and we had a photo opportunity once inside the park.
Families got to enjoy many of the rides and activities available including sky shuttle, mini diggers, dumper trucks, giant dirt truckers, go-karts and dodgems and many more!
Everyone who attended the trip had a great day and we now look forward to organising our next Medway Time Credits trip. Please get in touch for ideas for our next trip and keep checking the Website and our social media page for more details.
Here is the video of our recent summer event at Luton Millennium that captures some of the fun had on the day and talks about Arches Local, our Community space and we even threw in some of the things that happened at our 2017 event. We hope you enjoy watching it.

On Saturday 14th of April we held our Easter event at Luton Millennium Green it was a fantastic day and the weather was nice too!
There were lots to do on the day including Boxing, Football, Creating Easter Bunnies, and Easter Egg Hunt and lots more.
It was our best ever attended event and we gathered lots of community research for our Big Local plan and Neighbourhood planning.
Here at the Arches, we have been busy being creative with Social Art on a Tuesday morning and Community Art on a Wednesday morning.
In the New Year, we had Darren from 1staidfire come in and he did some Pediatric First Aid training with local residents.
The course comprised of two days of training. The first day comprised of a question and answer workshop as well as talking about personal experiences. We talked about what should be included in a basic first aid kit and used our knowledge to see what we knew! The outcomes were very impressive.
The second day was hands-on practical with the use of a dummy to practice CPR as well as a simulated choking scenario. We also administered bandages as well as learning about the different medical equipment we may come across when working with adults and children. This included EPI-pens, asthma inhalers and diabetic insulin pens, just to name a few.
