Family Fun Day & Hog Roast 2011

This year the trustees decided not to organise the usual summer events to Farmer Palmers and Paulton's Park or Longleat. Instead we hired The Orangery in Merley, Wimborne and held a Family Fun Day Hog Roast and BBQ. This was another first for DDCS as we had not organised an event like this before. So on Sunday 14th August one hundred and seventy parents, grandparents and children and young people turned up for a fun day and this even exceeded the attendance at our popular Christmas Party!

The grounds of the Orangery are beautiful and included plenty for the children and adults to enjoy such as Badminton, Beach Volley Ball, Basketball, Mini Golf, Croquet, Petanque, Table Tennis, Giant Chess and a Climbing Net. DDCS hired a Skittle Alley, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four and Snakes and Ladders. These were lent to us free of charge by Christopher Poole of Castlefun. Thank you Christopher! For the younger children DDCS also hired a selection of toys including a parachute, soft play, building bricks, rockers and more. And to add to the fun there was also Face Painting and Pick a Lolly.

The Venue created a very secure environment for the children as the grounds are surrounded by a twelve foot wall and as we were the only people at The Orangery parents were able to sit and relax chat to other families while the children played. 

A Skittle competition was held to see who could knock down the most skittles and this was won by Geoff Farrar who went home with a big tin of Heroes.  Not sure if he got a look in on these if Holly had her way! 

Everyone enjoyed the Hog Roast and BBQ with a great range fo food choice including salads. The weather held and it didn't rain and everyone had a great time!
