Gavin visits High Flyers

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, visited the High Flyers in Wombourne last week to hear about the group’s recent activities.

The charity, which provides meaningful day time activities for forty young adults with learning difficulties, is based in Pegasus House, Wombourne which was recently acquired by the group.

After being presented with a birthday card from members of the organisation and a pork pie cake. Gavin then spoke to volunteers from the organisation and heard about what High Flyers have been doing and their plans for the future.

Gavin previously helped out the group to obtain a grant to help High Flyers carry out an extensive refurbishment of the premises. Following the revamp, facilities include an I.T suite, art room, multi-purpose activity rooms, common room, brand new kitchen/diner and sensory room.

Gavin said: “This is a wonderful charity and I cannot praise enough all the work that it does to help adults with learning difficulties throughout Staffordshire. High Flyers has helped a huge number of people in Wombourne and the surrounding area and is a great group which plays a huge part in the community.

“We are so lucky to have the amazing facility right on our doorstep. The group has supported so many people with learning difficulties and has the capacity to help so many more. I have urged the County Council to encourage them to use High Flyers more proactively for Staffordshire residents. I would like to thank them for the fantastic welcome and the birthday gifts I received. I had a brilliant time and I look forward to coming back in the future.”
