We at DSC are excited to welcome back our providers but it seems our providers are just as excited.

Hannah Dobbin, Forest Flyerz said: "We jumped at the chance to be involved with DSC's Summer Festival having been part of it last year. Seeing so many people enjoying the chance to try such a range of activities including hockey was amazing. It just shows how inclusive sport can be.”

One of the most popular sports from last year’s summer festival was cycling. From tandem tricycles, side-by-side cycles, platform tricycles and Handcycles the sport is more inclusive than ever before.

Maya from Bikeworks is thrilled to return: "We're pleased to have been invited back as last year our All Ability bikes were really popular and participating in this event helped spread the word about our service".
