Wow, what a party!
On the 14th April, instead of our usual Family Drop-in, we had our much anticipated Easter Party.
The guests at the party were Sam Jones (pictured above) as seen previously on Britain's Got Talent, Animal School, Pets as Therapy and The Crafty Ladies from Seaford's Inner Wheel.
Crafty Ladies of Seaford's Inner Wheel
We're very grateful to the Crafty Ladies of Seaford's Inner Wheel for knitting 3 dolls that made up some of our raffle prizes and for presenting us with a cheque for £100 to help pay for our party - thank you.
Sam Jones was quite a draw, filling the Blue Room with his interactive performance that enthralled a good majority of our members for his entire visit! It certainly looked like a lot of fun and we saw plenty of "Magicians Assistant" stickers on the children, during the afternoon.

Also at the Drop-in was Lindsey, with her animal school, bringing along a turkey, two lizards, guinea pigs, the biggest rabbit we've ever seen and enormous land snails.

Pets as Therapy
Pets as Therapy dogs also came to visit with their lovely (and so well behaved) Pets as Therapy dogs. Emily Hollis with PAT dog Jake, Jackie Williams with PAT dog Reno, Patricia Harvey plus PAT dog Ellie who, although a similar colour, was the only dog there not a Golden retriever, Carol Gadd with PAT dog Tally and Area Coordinator Noël Austin and PAT dog Pipper.
They were certainly a hit and we hope that they come to visit us again soon at one of our regular (much calmer!) drop-ins.
