A HALESOWEN service for adults with learning difficulties is looking to create a rural haven to help them study nature.

The Oaks Project, based at the Cradley Enterprise Centre in Maypole Fields, has been presented with a static caravan and manager Chris Self is appealing for a site to place the vehicle and create a satellite venue for the students.

Mr Self said he is going to refurbish the van inside and out and hoped to find a place that would enable service users to engage with nature.

He said: “We have recently taken possession of a gifted caravan which could prove a very useful and much needed resource.

“If possible I would like to site the caravan in a local rural setting and use it as an alternative creative satellite venue for the students that attend my facility.

“Our intention would be to study nature in a creative way by engaging in a range of practical country crafts, taking photographs, drawing, painting, storytelling, singing, cooking outdoors and simply enjoying being together in a setting that would allow us to do all of the above.

“The idea of this kind of respite has been very well received by the families of my students as it would occasionally offer an opportunity for the students to engage with all of the diverse positive elements that nature has to offer, in an unhurried way.

“I am appealing to anyone that might have a little corner of land and could help us by accommodating the caravan.

“We would be self-sufficient quiet occupants and use the facility and the surroundings in a gentle, respectful and sympathetic manner.”

Anyone who can help is asked to call Mr Self on 07906 873311.
