9th May 2021 - Blessing in Disguise V.I.P. Day in association with A.L. Silcock Fun Fairs. A day out at the fun fair exclusively for children and families registered with Blessings.

We were so happy that we could open our event for the children at long last after them not being able to go for so very long due to Covid-19 and the lockdown restrictions.

Here is a collage of some of the photos. More will be uploaded shortly.

The feedback from the event was fabulous. Everyone had a much needed day out and back to some sort of 'normality'.

Feedback will be posted shortly as we are still gathering and uploading
