June has been a busy month for the South Central region both here at Tedworth House and out and about.
I have been to RM Poole to look at an amazing recently opened family centre. It will be a great venue for some get-togethers in the future.
At the beginning of June, 25 BoB/BoS and families met at Coombe Bissett farm for a lovely family walk up hill and down dale. Wiltshire Wildlife Trust led the way and pointed out lots of interesting plants, wildlife and birds. The sun did not make an appearance but we walked so far there was no danger of getting cold!
We finished the morning with a lunchtime BBQ. The children all had fun with various craft activities, such as making spiders from wood and pipe cleaners, and clay animals.
“Thank you for a great day. We all had a great time and I now have three very tired boys!” (BoS Kirsty Ayres)
OnSaturday 4 June, four lucky people went to Thruxton race course for a noisy weekend watching trucks race around the circuit. The weather was not ideal but it didn’t seem to stop the trucks driving at crazy speeds!
Band of Brothers member Jim Sutton organised an amazing charity information day at the Civic Hall in Calne on Wednesday 8 June. It was great to see those of you who were there and to speak to the other charities that attended. Lots of people had put a lot of effort into organising the day and also baking cakes for everyone.
We had a great craft get-together at Tedworth House on Tuesday (date?). Six BoSs used buttons and beads to make some fabulous designs on cushions. There were a number of amazing cushions produced. Some lucky people will be getting great presents! We have some very talented Sisters and we have plans for lots more get-togethers.
We had another very successful Shooting for Heroes weekend in June. Six BoBs on the Shooting for Heroes programme took their CPSA gun skills course at Bramley Range and passed with flying colours. We then had some fun shooting clays – putting in a bit of practice before we attend some charity events later in July.
