On the afternoon of Saturday 16th June at the Keynsham Rugby Club we had our 40th birthday party. Over 300 people attended and enjoyed the live music from Daz Rocks 4 charity and Weston-Super-Mare band ‘Better than Expected’. Our very own Music Man Project gave an exclusive live performance, DJ Barry played dance floor favourites to get everyone up dancing. A fun afternoon with Chuffy the Train rides, bouncy castle and face painting all made for a great afternoon in the sun celebrating our 40th birthday.
Jason Preston was in the firing line in the stocks a great opportunity to see how his beard is growing and to get a soaking.
The rugby club were great host and run the bar and BBQ to keep everyone fed and watered, it was a great way for us to celebrate with everyone who had been involved in the society.
It was wonderful to see so many members, their families, volunteers old and new, founder members and supporters come together to celebrate this milestone in our Society’s history.
Over 40 years hundreds of children and adults have found friendship, fun and support with us. As we move forward towards our 50th, we will aim to develop increased opportunities and initiatives to promote the wellbeing of those with learning difficulties generally.
With a feisty performance from our Music Man project after only ten sessions, we demonstrated and took pride in the potential that our members with good support can achieve.
