On Thursday 11th July 2019, 27 members of RFSG had an evening out at the Hawk Conservancy near Andover. Children and their parents had a fun filled night enjoying a ride on a tractor, animal petting, a ride on a pony, a chance to have a photo with a bird, bug hunting and face painting to name a few of the activities. Also delicious barbecue was provided and enjoyed by all.  Thank you to everyone involved with Hawk Conservancy who made this evening possible.

Joan, Sue and Carol represented Romsey Family Support Group at S.C.R.A.T.C.H 'Celebrating 20 years' showcase event. As a condition of our invitation, we had to take along a useful household item that would help a family in need, to gain entry to the event. We took along a pack to two tea towels, curtains, a sleeping bag, a kettle and a brand new knife set.
We enjoyed a tour of the S.C.R.A.T.C.H building seeing various projects and learning how they fight local poverty, a BBQ and refreshments, live music and a raffle. It really was a lovely afternoon and to top it all Carol won a  brand new Southampton FC 2018-19 home shirt in the raffle!

We really appreciate all S.C.R.A.T.C.H do for the families we support by helping to provide low price furniture items and of course their 'Christmas Complete Project' where families receive age appropriate presents for every child under 18 in the family, delivered to their address along with wrapping paper and cellotape.

On Sunday 16th June 2019 (Father's Day) the NOMADS of Romsey put on a special performance of their show 'Country Magic' for both Romsey Family Support Group and Romsey Young Carers (two charities that NOMADS are very kindly supporting this year). Children, their parents, volunteers and staff members had a throughly enjoyable afternoon, dancing along in their seats and being entertained. At the half time interval a lovely spread of sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, scones with Jam and cream and much more was provided and an raffle was drawn. Thank you so much to everyone involved with NOMADS Romsey who gave up their Sunday afternoon to put on a fantastic performance. We really appreciate all that you do for RFSG.


Paultons Park 2019


On Sunday 9th June 2019, families from Romsey Family Support Group, had an enjoyable day out at Paultons Park courtesy of the Romsey & Waterside Lions Club.  In order to raise funds  every year at Easter they deliver large 1kg chocolate eggs to pubs, clubs and other outlets to raise the funds to buy tickets by raffling the eggs.

We would like to say a big thank you to the Romsey & Waterside Lions Club for all the time and energy they put into planning for this wonderful day out for the children and their parents.

On Friday 29th March 2019 the parents had an afternoon enjoying tea and cakes. A Group of mums decided to hold a tea party as a celebration for Mothering Sunday. They made cakes and brought them in and shared all with the other mums and volunteers. It was a very successful event and the parents hope to do it again in the future. Perhaps with a savoury theme.
