Family Fun Day & Hog Roast

What a great day our members had at our Family Fun Day and Hog Roast/BBQ on Sunday 19th August. It was our ninth visit to The Orangery near Wimborne for our very popular annual Fun Day.

Over 200 of our members came along for a fun packed day and this year there was some extra guests who came along to congratulate Shirley Sorbie on being awarded an MBE by the Queen for all the work and dedication she had given to deaf children and their families for the last 27 years.


The weather on the day did not start well with a down pour of rain early morning but we were so lucky as the sun came out and dried up the rain and we had warm sunny weather with no rain all day!


The Orangery in Wimborne is a great venue with games and activities such as Mini Golf, Badminton, Beach Volley Ball, Basketball, Petanque, Table Tennis, Giant Chess, Football Table, Climbing Net and a giant Connect Four. DDCS also organised the very popular inflatables which this year included the Minnions inflatable obstacle course, Giant Slide, Sea Fun Run.


Jules the Entertainer greeted everyone on stilts as they arrived and also during the day did circus trick workshops, balloon making and a show. We again had our brilliant face painters Joanna (Lilliana’s mum) and Carla.


The Hog Roast and BBQ was provided by Roast around the Coast who worked hard to give a great service and the food was excellent. This year we also paid for a free ice cream fro everyone.

A brilliant family day with loads of fun!
