Aimee is a very talented artist, and that talent has been passed down through the generations.

Last week Aimee popped into Arts Inc. Heretaunga to have a look at a retrospective exhibition from the late Sally Simpson of Wairoa.

Sally was Aimee’s grandmother.

Now Sally’s delightfully eclectic paintings are looking for ‘forever homes’ and are available for viewing upstairs in the gallery until May 28th, 2022.

Jess – Living her best life

Exciting times for Jess as she has just started attending Land Base Training four days a week, Monday to Thursday, and she spends some time developing her life skills with Parvesh on Fridays.

Even though it was a challenging start to the year, Jess is now focused on the future and is working towards her independence.

Great to see that huge smile on your face Jess 😊
