Paint Party at Glencruitten Hostel

As part of H2O's ongoing youth work in the Oban area, Rachel and Ewen turn up weekly at Glencruitten Hostel, weekday home to young folk from the islands of Coll, Colonsay, Lismore, the south of Mull and outlying rural areas.
Activities include deep discussions around a cuppa, Ewen being pummelled at Pool, games nights and arts and crafts nights. These times are great opportunities to get to know each other and have a lot of fun.
As you can see from the picture, our most recent time was spent producing fine works of Art, some folks producing many more than others (you know who you are!!)
In the plan for the coming months are the annual visits to some of the island communities which are home to hostel residents. These visits provide the ideal opportunity for the H2O youth workers to get to know some of the young folk who will be part of next year's S1 year group, and hopefully a time to meet some parents and relatives from the islands.
