Summer Picnic

What a fantastic time we had at together Shipley Park meeting old friends and making new ones!  The sun shone, the picnics were great, there were lots of games played and almost all of the balloons made it out of the park!

The furthest travelling balloon has been found on the beach at Shingle Street in Suffolk and returned to DSD by Harriet Brooks after travelling 170 miles from Shipley!
