Symbol Hop Yard Dickley Day Service

Symbol have established what we have called The Hop Yard services. These offer something new, diverse, exciting, innovative and fun in the form of a wide range of activities for children and adults of all ages.  The Hop Yard is a great place to learn a new skill, and meet new friends.

Site Based activities

Music Hall which is all about all things music based.  Participants can learn or just mess about with instruments, make music on the computer, record their own music, learn to use their voice, production and acting skills.

Art studio which offers a vast array of creative art activities such as pencil, pen, paintwool crafts, felt, silk, paper mache sculpture and model making plus many more.

We are also able to offer our equine centre at the Dray in Hollingbourne. Participants have hands on experience in horsemanship, all stable and yard duties and of course ride in our safe arena.
