On Saturday 2nd December we held our annual Christmas Party at The Blandford School, Blandford and 156 members came along including some very excited children. Three new families attended their first DDCS event and were able to meet other children and parents.
To start the afternoon families were entertained with music from Richard, Party time for Kids, who also organised some games for the children. He brought along his magic bubbles which he managed put the children (and some parents) inside of, much to the delight of the children! The children were also able to have fun at the craft tables and there was also face painting of some great festive faces! Thank you to Joanna, mum of Lilly and Joanna who do such amazing face painting for us. The Dorset DCS information table was available for families to help themselves to any literature they might need and NDCS Christmas Cards were on sale raising money, not just for NDCS, but also for Dorset DCS.
Everyone enjoyed a finger buffet with plenty of delicious food. The savoury food was provided for our families by the school catering company, Cater Link Ltd. We would like to thank Karen Hall and her team for giving up their time to make the savoury food for us. All the cakes, biscuits and fruit and drinks were provided by DDCS. A big thank you to Sandra Mackrow, one of our parents, who volunteered to make cakes for us.
After the food it was time for the entertainment provided by Richard and Party Time for Kids! This included games for the children and dancing and before long the adults were joining in! Everyone had a great time.
It was then time for a visit from a very special visitor…… Father Christmas who brought presents for all the children. Every family had a photo taken with Father Christmas and these are all available on the DDCS picture website. If you wish to view and download them you need to contact Lucy Calverley on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank Liz Bishop and her team at The Blandford School for once again letting us have the venue free of charge.
Another great party to end 2018 for DDCS!
