Basingstoke & District Disability Forum

Basingstoke & District Disability Forum (BDDF) are excited to announce the dates for the next Chineham and Sherfield Park Scarecrow Trail Summer 2021! Last year’s event was hugely popular and raised vital funds for BDDF. Noting we have taken the feedback onboard to run over a longer period. The event will take place over the first week of the school holidays, 24th to 30th July 2021, with map sales available over the first weekend. Please look out for details on our Facebook page on how to vote for this year’s theme and how to sign up to be an entrant which will open later in the year. We would welcome volunteers to help with the planning, organisation and execution of the event. Virtual meeting will take place on Thursday 18th February at 7pm. If you have skills to offer or time available to help us run this event, or simply a passion to get stuck in, please get in touch! BDDF’s services. Our weekly seated exercise for mobility and wellbeing; and Friday Teabreak club; are both free and take place online. Our Walking Club will resume once it is safe for us to do so; as will our courses to help people use their personal IT devices. If you are interested in registering for any of these activities, please get in touch. Disability Awareness Event. BDDF are preparing to host our annual Disability Information & Awareness Day virtually this year.
