October has been a busy month - Wincanton racecourse gave us some tickets for Armed Forces Race Day and several local BoB attended. It was a very cold day but a good time was had by those that went.
We had a wonderful respite weekend on 21st October. 10 BoS attended and benefitted from a morning of relaxing Indian head massage, reflexology, makeovers, manicures and card making and that was all before midday. In the afternoon we went to Chocolate Craft near Winchester and made chocolate truffles and decorated chocolate lollipops. The chocolates tasted delicious and were a great present for family members. Saturday night was quiz night and time to have a good natter with new found friends. It was wonderful to meet so many lovely ladies and share some down time with you.
“I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you all for the most amazing weekend. I was really nervous about attending but you all made me feel so welcome and to meet other ladies going through similar things. It was also good to speak to people who truly understand and don’t judge you over everything. “
On a lovely sunny October morning 5 BoS gathered to help make flower decorations for The Hero Awards dinner. They were beautiful and very much appreciated by the guests.
The Iron Age Roundhouse at Tedworth House is almost finished! During half term 15 BoB and BoS and their families came and helped with the daubing of the wattle walls. Grass cuttings were mixed with sifted soil and water and the mixture was pressed by hand into the walls. The mixture then hardens and forms the walls.
11 BoB passed their DSC1 deer stalking qualification as part of the Shooting for Heroes programme. Well done to all of you.
We had a brilliant sunny Halloween family fun day in conjunction with Wiltshire Wildlife. We went to Blake Hill farm nature reserve near Cricklade and had great fun making kites, carving pumpkins, apple bobbing, slime making and felting. Sadly there was no wind so we couldn’t fly the kites but the day was great fun and a good time was had by everyone that attended.
What's Coming Up?
- Wednesday 9th November – BoS Mental Health awareness Day at Tedworth House.
- Thursday 8th December BoB/BoS family Christmas carols and party at Tedworth House. Further details in email to follow.
