As children, most of us would take for granted the chance to get out and about, exploring, climbing trees, visiting the park and hanging out with friends, but for many children and adults with a special need, it just isn't possible. If you have a physical disability, the difficulties are more obvious, but, if you have a learning disability or sensory problems, you may find it hard to relate to other people and to join in their games. Since 1982 the Thames Valley Adventure Playground has provided a chance for children & adults with all types of special need to enjoy the fun, freedom and friendship afforded by the opportunity to play and share experiences in a safe and stimulating environment, with users travelling from Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, London and beyond. Wheelchair-accessible roundabouts and swings, elevated walkways allowing someone with profound and multiple problems to enjoy the excitement of 'climbing' trees, multi-sensory rooms to stimulate and relax, with specially-trained staff to provide help and support - these are just a few of the things on offer.
There is something in the air, with more challenges afoot. Louise Reynolds is making 2014 a year of challenges. She's started with the Reading Half Marathon and now has the Marlow Half Marathon and the Maidenhead Easter Ten, the Dorney Lake All Nations 10k and the Marlow FM 10k now under her belt, with a 30-mile Charity Cycle Ride coming up at the end of June. Visit her JustGiving page to find out more . . .
