THE MEDWAY SPINNERS, DYERS and WEAVERS GROUP.

A great Friday afternoon learning some new skills. Thank you to Elspeth, Rosemary and Ann, for coming along to teach us how to spin wool.We can’t believe how many different types of materials you can use to spin into wool or yarn. What a great contrast of using traditional methods and crafts with some of the modern technology in the background which everybody now uses today. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again to teach us some more of your skills in the future.

HATE CRIME

 

For those that don’t know Aztec Day Services has been a disability hate crime reporting hub since February 2016. We have delivered some of the MCCH Jigsaw Project sessions to our service user’s in the past at our day centre, which lead to us setting up as a Disability Hate Crime Reporting Hub.
Bobby Mahay since then has been in constant communication with us, as well as regularly visiting the day centre to meet our service users. Bob is the Community Liaison Officer at Medway Police, from that he invited me to become part of IPAG ( Independent Police Advisory Group) at Medway Police.
We are not only now a disability hate crime reporting hub, but a hate crime in general reporting hub which includes, race, religion, gender etc.
If you feel you are a victim of hate crime in general, please do contact me and i can give you the direction into how to report it.
This can be either through the Kent Police Website or the Truevison Website.
In an emergency or life threatening situation call 999.
In a non emergency or non life threatening situation cal 101.

STROOD COMMUNITY PROJECT

Aztec’s will now be linking in and working with Strood Community Project.This will not only give our service user’s opportunities to do various voluntary jobs within the project, but also we will be starting a new project with them. We will be taking in small items of furniture that are damaged and unsaleable from their Strood shop. Then the items will be repaired, restored, repainted etc. by the service user’s themselves. They can then be returned to the shop so that they can be sold to help the work that they do within the community. This will not only give our service users vital experience in the voluntary community sector and work related skills, but also it will give them practical and D.I.Y. skills.
