Forth Valley Sensory Centre
The annual Deaf Children’s Family Day took place at Forth Valley Sensory Centre last weekend. The Family Fun Day is a great fixture on the calendar and has something for all ages.
This year, stalls and advice in the main hall were provided by British Deaf Association and Windsor Park School amongst others. There was face painting and giant games to enjoy inside too as well as our Sensory Garden outside.
Also outside was the National Deaf Children’s Society technology roadshow bus, providing information and advice to families on some of the lastest assistance tech. We were also able to welcome the Scottish Fire Service and a crew from the nearby Larbert Station who gathered a lot of interest from children and parents!
Staff member Chloe did a great job on the BBQ in the Sensory Garden. Lots of people tucked into fantastic steak burgers, courtesy of Malcolm Allan Family Butchers and rolls from Asda in Falkirk. There was even a finger spelling quiz with goodie bags donated by Cochlear that were very well recieved!
The Family Fun Day was organised by Forth Valley Sensory Centre and NHS Forth Valley Audiology.
Centre manager Jacquie Winning said:
“Apart from some attempted showers, we got a really great day. It was good to see so many young people enjoying the garden and parents benefiting from some of the support on offer. The technology bus is a wonderful facility and it was great to have the team along again this year. Thanks to everyone who came along and supported the Family Fun Day”
