Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

9 Comments

This week’s photo challenge asked us to post photos that we have taken today, not those taken previously which would fit the theme.  Fortunately, I was planning to take some photos today of the Immovable stone block which has been in front of York Minster since the early hours of Monday and is going to be taken away in the middle of the night on Sunday (I think).

Here are a few of the photos which I took of the Minster

and a performance – their theme was “home”.

  1. I enjoyed looking at the pictures of the Cathedral. Tell me more about this SNAPPY group.

    • Hi Colline

      Thanks for your comments. I think that the York Minster is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I’ve seen and I’m lucky to live in York and walk past it at least twice a week.

      SNAPPY is Special Needs Activity and Play Provision for York. It is a small local charity which was founded by a group of parents of special needs children in 1985 to provide out of school activities for their children. 27 years on, SNAPPY has expanded to provide out of school care on Saturdays during term time and during the Easter and Summer holidays for children aged 5 to 19 with special needs (these range from learning disabilities, physical disabilities, Down’s Syndrome, the whole of the Autism spectrum and many syndromes and disabilities which you have never heard of!) as well as a Youth Club type environment for 18 to 25 year olds (although we don’t kick them out at 25, lol). My son has attended SNAPPY for 8 years and I have worked there for a year as the bookkeeper/administrator. You can find out more about SNAPPY on their website http://www.snappyyork.co.uk. Thanks for your interest.

  2. Love it all. From the grand architectural wonder to the fun and colorful streets. Vibrant and beautiful.

    • Thank you. I was spoilt for choice on Saturday as we also had a Buskival with different acts on every street and street corner in the city centre – everything from singers to jugglers, to the Gold Man and Purple Man (they stay so still that you wonder if they are statues until someone puts money in their tin and then they move) and other street entertainers, wonderful!

  3. Reblogged this on Your PA Solution and commented:

    I haven’t prepared the blog for this week so, I am reblogging my Weekly Photo Challenge entry from my personal blog on Saturday which asked us to only put in photos which we had taken on the day of posting. As the photos showcase York and the work of SNAPPY (my previous post was about SNAPPY’s Club 100) I thought I’d post it here too.

  4. What great work they do! Love the photos.

    • Thank you. SNAPPY has definitely been an important part of our lives (and the lives of many families) for the past 8 years or so.
