Life After Lockdown
I usually work at Rushbrook Youth Centre and I haven’t been to Rushbrook for about 3 months and it was good to be back. I do outside youth clubs and Street-Based to see young people what they are doing and up to.
So what I do is some games, activities, have fun and chat about what you are doing when it’s during the Lockdown. Sometimes, I walk to the town to see and chat with young people to see what they are up to. When I come back to Rushbrook Youth Centre and I felt really nervous and bit of a shaky so it was really nice to be back, it was nice to see my team, it’s so weird to see each other about 3 months because so they not to face-to-face .
I went to Teignmouth with my family so we caught the train, I haven’t been on the train for about 3 months and I miss public transport, this is the first time I had to wear a mask when I got into a train and I felt a bit itchy. Couple weeks later I went to Exeter so I caught the train and I haven’t been to Exeter since March. When I went to Exeter I looked around the city centre and explored the area and then it was nice to be back to the city and I would like to go back again.
I am so pleased when the pubs, restaurants, cafes and gyms are opening as usual so I went there and it was nice to be hopefully back to normal. I went to Totnes Rare Breeds Farm with my mum and I haven’t been since last year, so it was to see the animals and visit.
I do Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene at iHasco and then I have completed and passed and I am so proud of myself. I had a training with Community Team with space* and so I learn about Dynamic & Collaborative and Equality & Diversity, I enjoy this training because it helps me as a Youth Worker.
