Vaulting Return

Great News – after much hard work pulling together a team of volunteers and coaches we are finally able to announce the return of Vaulting to the Cavalier Centre. We can’t wait to restart regular weekly vaulting sessions from Wednesday 6th October, 4.30-5.30pm . If you’d like to join the sessions as a participant or volunteer please contact [email protected] for more details. Thank you Jane for offering to Coach and to the volunteers who make these sessions possible!

Sensory Garden Donation from Westland Horticulture


We had a very generous donation of bird baths, bird boxes and bird feeders from Westland Horticulture for our sensory garden and trail. These will be a fantastic addition to the garden which we plan to start creating in the coming months. There is nothing more relaxing than watching our wild birds and hearing their beautiful calls. We hope this space will be somewhere that our participants and families can go to relax and enjoy. If that’s to read a book, listen to the birds or watch our horses in the field. 

We are also looking to build a sensory trail around our carriage track for our participants to enjoy while riding or driving. These are some images from our friends @questRDA who have a fantastic trail.

 

 

 

We have also had a donation of bug houses from Homes for Bugs. https://www.facebook.com/homesforbugs/

 

If you are able to donate anything towards our garden we would be very grateful. We are looking for the following items:

  • Sleepers
  • Benches
  • Trellises
  • Plants (roses, grasses, clematis, small trees etc)
  • Wildflower and lawn seed
  • Topsoil
  • Sensory items (statues, chimes etc)

Or would you like to give a kind donation towards the build of the garden you can do so here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the sensory garden very soon!

Resources hub for participants

To help participants to carry on with RDA at home, RDA National Office have collected some resources in this shared hub here called ‘RDA at Home’: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16Az8DbeXnH8HOUBkHcr_d0KxxhlVZCrQ

 

You will find educational worksheets as well as a range of ‘just for fun’ activity sheets which can be downloaded and printed out. They will be adding to this as the weeks go on
