A summer fete this week will show off the craftsmanship and catering skills of adults with a disability.

The family fun day at Action 4 1ndependence, based on Albert Road, Wolverhampton, takes place from 11am to 2.30pm on Thursday (30 May, 2013).

There will be a selection of stalls showcasing the work of Bushbury Woodcraft, which makes a range of garden furniture, planters and bird boxes, and Bertie's, which produces tasty treats including fresh food and cakes.

Both Bushbury Woodcraft and Bertie's are social enterprises run by Wolverhampton City Council's Action 4 1ndependence service, which supports people with physical and sensory disabilities to develop their skills and confidence by producing and selling high quality goods to the public.

Other attractions at the summer fete include a barbecue, tombola and raffle, lucky dip and children's activities. Entry is free.

As well as providing a range of services to help adults with a disability to return to either voluntary or paid employment, Action 4 1ndependence offers day support and community work.
