Stay & Play group meet ups

We have recently been looking to organise more sessions where we all meet up and have a good chat.

‘Stay & Play’ is our way of providing opportunities around Lincolnshire to meet others in our support group and have fun!

Belton House

Our very first stay & play session was at Belton House in Grantham on October 1st.

The weather wasn’t brilliant but it didn’t stop us enjoying a train ride, a picnic and lots of playing!

 Boston Bowl

Our second meet was at Boston Bowl/Playtowers on November 19th  . Some chose to take part in bowling whilst others preferred the soft play area. We all ate lunch together afterwards in the American diner.





Our third meet during the Easter holidays in April was at Tattershall Farm Park. We had some different members from our group come to join us and we had an exclusive handling session put on for us. Tattershall is a perfect venue come rain or shine, and includes a soft play area & bouncy castle, toddler play room, giant sand pit and an outdoor play area. Not forgetting about the delicious food!

Puddle Ducks Charity Pyjama Week – Update

LDSSG would like to thank all the little ducklings from the Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire & Newark groups that helped raise over £1200 for our group in their pyjama week in November.

The money will be used to benefit our members in a variety of ways and its hugely appreciated.

Our treasurer Simon Linforth was lucky enough to meet with some of the swimmers recently so they could handover the cheque.

Thank you all!

Here’s what you need to know!

  • Your child (and yourself if you come in the pool) will need to wear PJs
  • We will be asking for voluntary donations of £2 per child
  • Or even better… we’d love your Puddle Duck to be sponsored for completing a personal survival lesson plan in their PJs.
