On Saturday 8th of July Deaf Parents Deaf Children returned to Bowood for the fifth time, and what a fantastic day it was! Hidden in the rolling hills of Wiltshire, the Bowood estate boasts one of the best adventure playgrounds in the country. A life-size pirate ship complete with rigging and a crows nest as well as a ‘space dive’ which featured giant slides aptly called the ‘slide of death’, chutes, trampolines, and high-level rope walks. The kids were let loose while the parents caught up on the latest news and got acquainted with new friends.
After lunch, we all went for a lovely walk by the glorious lake to the old temple and visited the caves, which were quite spooky – needless to say the kids loved walking into pitch darkness! We all came out to a view of the beautiful waterfall.
It was a lovely day to see the children making new friends and playing with each other so effortlessly, and for the parents to get together and chat knowing that they had so many things in common to talk about.
Thank you to all the families who came along, especially those who came from afar. Next years event will take place on Saturday 7th July 2018. Join the facebook event page and let us know if you’re coming!
