RESIDENTS from a supported living scheme have been treated to a taste of the Wild West.

Hightown Housing Association, which has 14 supported living schemes for people with learning difficulties around Bracknell Forest, laid on the themed fun day for residents as part of their annual summer gathering.

SportsAble, Maidenhead’s centre for disability sport was transformed into the Wild West, as over 100 service users and their families enjoyed food, a water fight, trailer rides and a country music disco.

Guests were also given a chance to meet a selection of animals from Basil & Crew Mobile Farm, with tortoises, donkeys and goats making an appearance.

Hightown Care & Supported Housing Manager, Francis Zvoma said: “The success of this event is a testament to the dedication of the staff who put a huge effort into bringing everyone together, even down to making all the decorations themselves.

“It was a brilliant day for residents, who have come so far over the past few years. Not so long ago, this event would have been too much for some of our service users. Now, they are able to socialise at a large party and really enjoy themselves.

“We would also like to thank the Radian Group for funding the event through their Community Grants scheme, and the Community First Responders for supporting us on the day and ensuring everyone was safe.”
