May has been a milestone month for the South Yorkshire CFO Activity Hubs, with now over 400 referrals on board. The Hubs wants to say a huge Thank You and give a shout out to everyone who has been referred over the past 11 months, and hope you are seeing the benefits.

On Wednesday 8th June, the Hub will be hosting their 1-year anniversary Open Day event. Drop in anytime between 10am and 3pm to meet clients and the team, as well as sample some of the activities the Hub has on offer.

What’s new?

Podcast – Calling all budding podcasters! Every Wednesday from 12.30pm-2.30pm, participants will be able to learn about how to plan, produce and edit their own podcast. With the help of our partner TIPP, participants have created a podcast all about wellness.

Photography Group – The Hub’s second photography group session took place last week. Every Friday from 11am-1pm, participants will be able to explore photo composition techniques, understand lighting when taking photographs, and learn new skills in post-production and photo editing.

Good News!

This month, the Hub’s fishing project started with 4 participants. During the group’s first session at the Northern Fishing School, they explored the food source of the freshwater fish in the River Ure, as well as developing their understanding of the feeding behaviour of fish. The group also participated in the collection and identification of macroinvertebrates, all whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery at the Swinton Estate.

The Hub has also been successful in another bid for funding! A second bid has been won, meaning they are planning another community fishing trip later this year – great news!
