Dingles Heritage Funfair
Some of Campania’s residents enjoy trip to Dingles heritage funfair, Lipton in Devon. Dingles is a functioning funfair with a museum of preserved fairground attractions from over 100 years ago.
The residents had a fun filled afternoon from driving the bumper cars, braving a 1947 Ghost Train to horse riding on a 50 year old carousel.
Finally, resident Peter, showed off his shooting skills and won himself a prize.
Carol, Peter and Gwen agreed that they had an amazing time and that they would definitely go back.
West Midland Safari Park
Campania take a trip to West Midland Safari Park. Driving through the park, getting up close to the animals. Then visiting the rest of the park via foot, including the robot life size dinosaurs!
We had the most amazing time driving through the park and seeing all the animals. There are simply too many animals to name, but our highlight was the Pride of white Lions and the white royal Bengal tigers! It was such an amazing sight seeing them as none of the residents had seen white lions or tigers before, including myself. – Chunu, Activities Coordinator
Ade bowman, magician and entertainer, entertained the residents with various magic tricks and jokes. Everyone really enjoyed the comedy routines and tricks. Some of the residents were very keen to volunteer and be a part of the act…
Glenda Spooner Farm
Glenda Spooner Farm is a horse rescue and re-homing center; a part of the World horse Welfare.
Visitors get to enjoy a free visit to the farm located in South Somerset. They can take a guided tour around the paddocks and stables, meeting the rescued horses and ponies, whilst learning about the great work the farm does behind the scenes.
They enjoyed a walk around the grounds and inside the cathedral; lighting candles for people they have lost. Then had a picnic and a browse in the city centre shops…
An all weather adventure park and farm. They start the afternoon with a lovely picnic in the park before exploring the attractions.
Firstly they could not pass the go-karts without giving them a go and getting competitive racing each other!
They then watch the falconry display,
An awesome sight to see the falconer guide the birds to fly really low and really fast. They were literally flying about a foot above our heads!
After the display, they all jumped aboard a miniature train and went for a ride around some of the animal enclosures. Finally exploring the rest of the park on foot, meeting the variety of animals living there; from large cows, chickens, pigs, piglets to meerkats. Resident, Mack, was very taken in by the meerkats, so much so he wanted to take one home, which the other residents were very supportive of.
We all had a really good time at Puxton Park
The Princess Theatre
Residents went to the Princess Theatre in Burnham-on-Sea to watch Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. A production by a local drama group aged between 5 to 16.
The show was an amazing success, a sold out performance.
Residents said how much they love the show; clapping and cheering. Unfortunately we could not get any pictures of the show, but all in all it was an amazing day and everyone said that they had a really good time and glad they went.
We are all looking forward to the next performance of the Little Shop of Horrors
St Fagan’s Castle
One of the most luxurious Elizabethan Manor Houses in Wales. The house and surrounding medieval buildings are Grade 1 listed. Complete with beautiful garden displays and St Fagan’s National Museum of History.
Residents enjoyed exploring the grounds in the sunshine and stopping for a drink in the cafe…
Taking a ‘rain check,’ residents had some fun with creative indoor activities. These included rock painting, making things with shells (collected from the beach during their Holiday in Illfracombe) and board games…
Residents take a trip to Bristol to have a picnic and visit the M shed; a museum all about Bristol. Everyone enjoyed looking around the modern day life museum, looking and reading about things in the museum. Especially having fun listening to all different types of music in the 7 decades of sound exhibition…
