24 of us went to Southend for the day on Wednesday 17th July 2019. The sun was shining and we went down the pier on a train, played crazy golf, some went to the amusements and fun fair. We had our picnic by the sea plus an ice cream. We all met up for fish and chips before getting the coach back to Gadebridge Park.
On Friday 31st May 2019, 24 Dacorum Mencap members and staff set off to Caldecotte Xperience in Bletchley. We stayed in 2 Mongolian Yurts which were great. We took part in 7 activities over the weekend (crate stacking, zorbing, archery, caving, bushcraft, wheely boats & rafted canoes) and everyone had an amazing time. Our members went above and beyond trying new activities and there was so much laughter from us all. We arrived back in Hemel on Sunday late afternoon, despite pleas to stay longer!
At Gateway in March 2019, we welcomed a 10 piece Ukulele band called “Katies Jumping Fleas” who entertained us for the evening. It was a fun and happy night for our members, plus the staff, and we hope to invite them back soon. Message from the band was “We had a blast! We loved every second of the evening – wonderful. We are happy to play anytime for your Gateway Club”
