What we have been up to in 2021 so far…..
SURREY WHEELS FOR ALL-HARRIER CENTRE – TRIKE RIDING – July 2021
22 of us enjoyed riding on the trikes around The Harrier Centre, thanks to Nigel at Surrey Wheels for All.
The SCAMPPS kids including parents and siblings had a great time trying out the trikes – All types and sizes – Tomcats, recumbent, some adapted for wheelchairs/buggies, 2 seaters – ALL SORTS !
We hope to do this again in Sept 2021 – watch this space.
WHAT SCAMPPS HAVE BEEN UP TO 2018 & 2019……
Safari Pete – Meeting the animals
In July we all met the Amazing Safari Pete and his wonderful array of exotic animals, including 2 very cute meerkats, Boo-Boo the monitor lizard, a barn owl called Juliet, scorpion, Drake the snake.
It was such fun, we will defiantly be seeing Pete and the animals again the very near future.
Thanks to Ed from Pedal Project and a large donation from the Needles View Charitable Trust, we were able to run a 3 week cycling course in Epsom during September. Ed uses lightweight Isla Bikes which are easy to control and the pedals come off so that they can be used at first as balance bikes to gain confidence. Since the course, the kids have all received an Isla Bike to use at home and we hope to repeat the course for those who are on the waiting list in Spring 2019.

Trip to see the Snow Queen at the Rose Theatre
In January, we had a brilliant opportunity to see a production at the Rose Theatre. We had 15 families and we took up all the wheelchair spaces at the Rose and enjoyed a signed performance which was of great benefit to many children. It was a fabulous production and all the family thoroughly enjoyed seeing it and spending some time together.
