South Central | Pip's update

It has been a busy month in the South Central region. 10 lucky people attended the opening night of Into the Woods, a musical at Salisbury Play House. Mission Motor sport had a multi-activity day at Thruxton Circuit. This was a popular event attended by a large number of BoBs. The weather couldn’t have been better, perfect for the microlight flights, and circuits in performance cars.

We had a wonderful 4 July BBQ at Tedworth House. Brilliant live music, glorious sunshine and a visit from over 30 motorcyclists on a fundraising ride made it a fabulous evening.

July saw two jewellery making evenings for BoS.  It was a great opportunity to have a get together, good chats and to make some lovely jewellery. 

We were very lucky to have two private viewings of the film Dunkirk before it went out on general release. It is an amazing film and those that attended were very appreciative to Contact for the tickets.

Last week was our annual summer fete. Almost 200 people turned up in spite of the weather and enjoyed a delicious cream tea, fairground teacup rides, face painting and other activities.
