Dear Members,

The festive season is almost upon us and Down syndrome Galway would like to invite you to join us at the Christmas Winter Wonderland at Turoe Pet Farm (Bullaun, Loughrea) on Sunday 18th

December from 2-5pm in what promises to be an afternoon of fun filled indoor and outdoor activities together with a visit to Santa. Full details including directions available on www.turoepetfarm.com.

The afternoon will comprise:

– A visit to the Illuminated Christmas Village + Nativity Scene;

– A Visit to Santa’s Grotto to tell him your Christmas wishes & a little gift for those on the good list;

– Freedom to feed the animals in the Stable;

– Freedom to enjoy lots of fun in Inflatable City + Jungle Town

– Free use the Astro Turf Pitch

We are asking for a payment of €10 per Child to visit Santa and avail of all the activities on offer (the balance being subsidised by the Down Syndrome Galway Branch). Any teenagers or young adults with Down syndrome will also have the option of visiting Santa should they wish.

Siblings under 12 are also welcome to attend and visit Santa at the subsidised price of €10 per Child. There will be no charge for parents, however older siblings (12-18 yrs) must pay an entrance fee of €6 which gives the option of availing of the facilities but assumes no visit to Santa. All bookings must be made in advance to ourselves by 2 nd December in order to avail of these special prices.

A text confirming your booking will be forwarded to those providing mobile numbers in the attachedform with Santa timeslots being allocated on arrival at Turoe.

The farm will have a full menu of hot food available for purchase on the day for anyone wishing to make a day of it.

All families wishing to attend should print and complete the attached form providing the names and ages of each child/adolescent planning to attend and return the completed form along with the relevant payment to Ruth Morvan, 37 Oldfield, Kingston, Galway before Friday 2 nd December. Booking form.

Cheques/Postal Orders should be made payable to Down Syndrome Ireland Galway Branch.

Everyone is welcome but please be aware that if you are planning to bring members outside the immediate family the usual charge of €20.00 per child for entry fee and visit to Santa will be payable at the gate.

We very much look forward to seeing you there!

Best regards,
