Elephants in Norwich !

Today Sam went to a playscheme at his school. They all went on a couple of mini-buses into Norwich city centre to do the "Go Elephant ! trail" . There are 53 lifesize baby elephants around Norwich that have been painted & decorated by artists and local groups. They are really attracting lots of people to Norwich this summer.

Martin Clunes was in Norwich today to support the Go Elephants ! He is a supporter of the Born Free foundation which will be helped by the auction of the sculptures in September. Sam and his friend Nicole managed to interrupt Martin's interview to say "Hello !" This is Sam's claim to fame to-date.

We rushed home form the playscheme because we had a home visit at 3.30pm with the Occupational Therapist (OT)and Physiotherapist (PT) from school. They had come to review Sam's comfy chair, sleep system and to check his wheelchairs as he has grown quite alot this year. His comfy chair is a JCM Jupiter chair which we have had for about 6 years now, but he has almost outgrown it and the headrest has broken.

As you can see it is still comfy !!

The OT will organise a rep to come into school so Sam can try out a new chair.
