East Kent Mencap: A day at Dreamland

East Kent Mencap members have enjoyed a day at Dreamland

Members of East Kent Mencap’s Margate Resource Centre have visited Dreamland for a day of laughter, sunshine and thrills.

East Kent Mencap is a local learning disability charity with resource centres in Thanet, Swale and Canterbury, which enable people with a learning disability to develop their life skills, take part in therapeutic activities and access services within the community.

Dreamland is a mere stone’s throw away from East Kent Mencap’s head office in Northdown Road, proving to be the perfect place for a summer’s outing last month. The day was warm and dry for the most part, but the rain certainly didn’t hold off for the afternoon. The group, however, embraced the change in weather, # as they rode the Scenic Railway.

On the day the group jumped from ride to ride, making sure to experience every thrill. They threw their hands in the air on the waltzer, crashed into one another on the dodgems and clung onto the gallopers.

Support Worker, Charlotte Bailey said: “Everyone who came on the trip was so brave, far braver than me!”

Paul Wood, who attends the Margate Resource Centre, said: “Dreamland was absolutely fabulous, me and Louis went on the twister and the waltzer rides but the best ride ever was the Magic Mouse!”

Everyone who visited Dreamland thoroughly enjoyed themselves and members have already begun planning their next trip to the seaside resort!
