Markets and games at Christmas party

YOUTH groups for children with disabilities from across South Cumbria joined together for a Christmas party.

Furness Youth Council helped organise the event which featured continental-style Christmas markets with crafts, card and mug making, a fortune teller, mocktails, cakes and biscuits, a lucky dip and other carnival-type games.

Chequers Hotel in Dalton provided the venue for free. Almost 140 children, aged eight to 19 from Barrow, Kendal and Ulverston youth groups, attended.

Youth council member Will Adams, 14, said the organisation was a real team effort and the method of using Monopoly-style money, which they called “Crimbo cash”, proved a great idea, meaning no one had to use real money.

The Year 10 Dowdales School pupil, of Glenfield Road, Dalton, said: “The feedback we’ve had is absolutely fantastic. People loved it.

“I enjoyed organising it and I know a lot of the other councillors did as well.

“The idea for it has been milling around for quite a while, but we started planning it in the middle of October.”
