‘Tea & Talk’ gathering for Mental Health Awareness Week

Longview and Larkwood wards joined together on The Street this morning to enjoy some homemade cakes (and tea!) to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week. Young people baked brownies (vegan and non-vegan) and a sponge cake to share with staff. Donations to the Mental Health Foundation were encouraged. We will update with grand totals in due course!

Below are some images captured at the event.

Today, a group of Longview students visited Highwoods Country Park and spent time enjoying the outdoors. They played on the rope swing, had a go in a hammock and made fireless smores (which tasted delicious!).

The NHS turns 70!

This afternoon, a selection of Longview staff and patients made NHS themed cupcakes in preparation for the ward garden party. Here are some examples of their hard work. They managed exceptionally well in the heat!
