AGM & Family Fun Day

Paradise Wildlfe Park will be the venue for this years Family fun day which will include a short AGM meeting.

You will be able to register from 10.30am and be given wristbands and a map of the park – The AGM will take place at 12 noon. As the venue for the meeting is not sufficiently large enough to accommodate everyone, we only ask one member of each family to attend – there are plenty of activities and things to see to keep everyone else amused while the meeting takes place. Once it is over, the rest of the day is yours to enjoy.

If you go to the Parks website you can see details of everything there is to do and where you can purchase refreshments should you wish to do so.

There is no charge for families belonging to DSE21. The day is of course open to everyone but if your relations of friends would like to join in the fun, there will be a charge of £9 per person.

Please email Deidre if you are attending so we know how many people will be attending or reply to the flyer that will be sent out in May.
