All the Fun of the Fair
This year, we were invited, along with other young people from the Barnstaple Learning Community, to the ‘Special Fair’. The Showman’s Guild organise the event annually which enables young people with Special Needs to experience Barnstaple Fair in the day time without the hustle and bustle of crowds and allows them to go on the rides and take in the atmosphere of a Fairground. This year, we decided to offer the visit to all year 9 students only. It was a great day, despite the rain trying to ruin it at the start. We went on the dodgems, the waltzers and a hot air balloon ride. Some people went on the waltzers more than once! It was so much fun. We all got offered some food and some candy floss (which everyone took home) and came back to school, very excited and tired from all the fun.
