Following on from the success of this year’s Education Day we are keen to run a similar event next year. We want to make next year’s day as relevant for all of our members as is possible and therefore we are asking for your ideas for topics and issues that should be covered.

Please let Maggie Scott know your thoughts and ideas…


Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising a free donation for Peterborough Area Down Syndrome Group? There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to Peterborough Area Down Syndrome Group to say thank you for shopping with them.

It’s really simple, and doesn’t cost you anything.

All you have to do is:

1. Go to

2. Sign up for free

3. Get shopping – your donations will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to Peterborough Area Down Syndrome Group. It couldn’t be easier!

There are no catches or hidden charges and Peterborough Area Down Syndrome Group will be really grateful for your donations.

Thank you for your support

During this summer period we will be able to offer adapted cycling for extended periods on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting week commencing 20th July. It is a come and try type of session so length of time on a bike will depend on numbers attending. Please click on the image below for a larger version.



We had some lovely visitors at Honeyhill last week. Many thanks for stopping by and showing us around your police van.
