Dorset Rally
Yearly Event

The Rally is a fun day, where there is something for everyone to do, meaning that everybody can get involved. I like to enter items I have made in the craft competitions and then watch/take part in the team activities in the afternoon. Although competitive at times, all of the clubs help and support each other and cheer each other on. This creates a friendly atmosphere, where it is easy to meet and talk to new people from different clubs. Overall the rally is a great day where you can pick up prizes, friends and have a laugh all at the same.

National AGM Weekend

Yearly Event in April

Blackpool 2016 was my first ever nationals and boy was it memorable! It was a jam packed weekend filled with different competitions, conferences and lots of freebies! The evening themes this year were black tie, sportswear and club shirts-how people come up with these T Shirt slogans I will never know!

The weekend was fantastic; a great chance to meet new people, make new friends and make lots of memories. The highlight for me was definitely the radio 1 DJ’s in the evenings.

SWA Junior Weekend
Yearly Event in August


Junior SWA was such a good experience; it’s helped me to make new friends and links from other Counties in the South West. It was also a great team building weekend where we enjoyed lots of water sports and climbing activities. I strongly recommend all juniors to take advantage of this amazing weekend!
