Dorrington House Wells Fete
On Saturday 5th August Dorrington House hosted our annual Summer fete from 11am-2pm. We welcomed family and friends to the event with a great turnout, our raffle was very popular and residents had the chance to win prizes with their lucky numbers! In total we managed to raise £307.22! Thanks to everyone who attended and participated, all raised funds go to Friends of the Home.
Wells Carnival Week
Carnival week provides entertainment for all ages: a teddy bears picnic, raft race and funrun plus painting and sandcastle competitions. They also put on history walks and various workshops plus live music over 6 nights along with the ever popular Screen on the Green. The event culminates on the 2nd Saturday with the main Carnival event, including fancy dress competitions, a parade around the town and a spectacular music event in the evening.
We decided this year to host our fete on the same day as carnival day, so that families could join us for our fete in the morning and finish the afternoon off with the carnival.
The official date of the carnival was Friday 28th July-Sunday 6th August (incl) (Carnival Day 5th August 2017).
After our fete had finished at 2pm, it was time to gather and prepare our residents for the trip down to the town centre to watch the carnival parade. With the wheelchairs at the ready, staff and families helped in ensuring residents moved safely throughout the bustling carnival activities.
