General Activities


St Helens Local Autism and Social Communication Service  are running a weekly creative competition for  all children in St Helens. 
The next #sthelenschallenge competition is here! Make, draw or invent a fruit or veg, take it outside and photograph it near something growing in your garden. We want to see your creations! 
Details of the competition can be found every Monday morning on Facebook and Twitter. Just follow, like and share St Helens Council. Post your photo and you may be a winner of a weekly prize, delivered to your door by one of the team.
