Yesterday I attended Kingston Maurward College open day. I had obtained discounted tickets from Dorchester Tourist Information Centre and was pleased to discover that my 16 year old daughter qualified for a child's ticket and was free. It was an opportuntiy to spend some time in a relaxed environment and to also explore the courses that the college has to offer.
There was plenty to entertain all ages, and some delicious food and drink to indulge in. It was hard to resist the tempting smells of the food cooking, and deciding between the options was quite a challenge! I was very tempted by the bass in a bun, but opted for the organic lamb and watercress wrap which was being cooked by Downhouse Farm. It was absolutely delicious and the drizzle of ginger sauce was a great combination!
Sitting on the grass bank overlooking the lake we were treated to various musical performances. I enjoyed the Decadettes who sang music from different decades. I had met one of the the singers recently when she came and gave an inspirational talk on a course that I am taking called Springboard, which is a personal development course for women.
It was a very happy atmosphere and some of the young children were obviously very taken with the music from past eras, as a lot of them were dancing, and rolling down the hill as you do when you are young and flexible!
