SWALLOW Charity, the local charity supporting teenagers and adults with learning disabilities, organised a celebration barn dance for its members on Thursday 29th June. The charity is celebrating its 30th Anniversary and nearly 100 people came together at Tucker’s Grave Inn in Faulkland.

SWALLOW Charity was established in 1993 in response to local people with learning disabilities wanting more choice about how they lived their lives.  Since then, the organisation has grown immensely, offering a wide range of services and now supports more than 150 teenagers and adults in Bath and North East Somerset and remains user led. 

Everyone had a fantastic time; over one hundred people enjoyed dancing the night away to the ceilidh band, Four Foot Four, a hog roast was provided by the Roaming Deli and the evening was supported by a donation from the Society of Merchant Venturers.

SWALLOW member, L said “it was great to be with all my friends, we had such a good time, I love the dancing, when can we do it again?”

 Bev Craney, Chief Executive of SWALLOW, says “We had an absolutely fabulous night with a ceilidh band and food from the Roaming Deli.  The night couldn’t have gone better!”
