Dyscover Autumn Outing – Milestones Museum

Posted 19th October 2016

The Autumn outing to Milestones Museum in Basingstoke was a huge hit.
We enjoyed taking a stroll (literally) down memory lane to explore what life was like in Victorian England and the 1930′s. There were life-size streets, buildings, shops, dozens of restored vehicles, and homes set out as they would have been. There was an Edwardian Pub selling beer, and an old fashioned sweet-shop where we bought our 2oz ration of sweets to last a whole week! The vast collections of toys, and domestic appliances had many people in stitches reminiscing and imagining life as it would have been.


Stroke Award

Posted 3rd October 2016

It’s been another busy week at Dyscover.  Among many other events, one of our members, turned volunteer, Barry McIllroy met the Mayor of Maidstone, Councillor Derek Butler.  Barry received a certificate for his nomination for the Stroke Courage Award at the Stroke Association Life After Stroke Awards even for the South East Coast region.


Accessible Sport supported by Mole Valley District Council

Posted 3rd October 2016
Dyscover are thrilled to be working alongside Mole Valley District Council in opening-up accessible sporting opportunities in the Borough. This week 2 of our groups have enjoyed taster sessions in two quite different sports.

Pachesham Golf Centre and PGA Professional Karl Spurrier hosted our Wednesday group in a golf skills masterclass. Our Members spent the morning trying out the driving range and later honing their skills on the putting green.

Bookham Rifle Club provided a thrilling morning of air-rifle shooting at their newly refurbished range with our Monday group Members. The morning was an exhilarating and empowering experience for our members, all of whom suffer from limited speech and movement due to their aphasia.

As a result of this ongoing partnership, Mole Valley District Council are supporting Dyscover by funding further sessions tailored to stroke survivors. We will be launching two 10 week courses for both golf and shooting later this autumn, with plans to repeat the courses in Spring 2017.
