garstondown002Sara Milne has sent a photo of the Walking Group’s walk at Garston Down on 3rd July. She writes :

“I took this photo on Wednesday – an action shot! I was on the walk with my Mum and Dad, as Stephen was working, and we all enjoyed it. Apparently, it was 4 1/4 miles long, so well done 1 and all!

I have created a forum for PHSG members to add information that may be of interest to other members. A very limited number of options are available at the moment, but if you have any suggestions, then post them in the Genera Comments are. Currently these are the areas that have been created :

  • General Comments – as mentioned above
  • For Sale / Wanted – do you have anything to sell to any of our members? Add them here, with a description and photo (if available)
  • PHSG Freecycle – You may have lots of items or unwanted presents that you wish to dispose of, which may be of interest to our members. If you are members of Poole Freecycle, then you will know how it works. I originally set up Poole Freecycle many years ago, although it has passed on to other moderators a long time ago.

Click on this link to get to the forum, or click on the Forum title in the main menu just below the photograph at the top of each page.

If the forum is little used, then it can be deleted in the future. Let’s see how it progresses!

I have already posted a plastic garden table that may be of interest to someone. If nobody shows any interest, then it will go on the Poole Freecycle list.

Skittles Evening

Derek and Margaret Pope organised a skittles evening on 24th June 2013 at Cobham’s Social Club in Merley. Just over 30 PHSG members participated and were split into teams of 6 members. Some teams had additional “helpers” just to confuse things a little!

My team, the “Crocodiles”, started off by leading in the first round, then went rapidly downhill! At least we weren’t last in the final reckoning.

The team in which Derek and Margaret were in – “Merley Marauders” – were overall team winners at the end, and the other winners/etc were :

  • Best lady – Sheena Parkin and Judy James
  • Best man – Roy White
  • Wooden spoon – Cyril Martin
  • Killer knockout round – Sheena Parkin

The event was a total success, and a full report will be printed in the next magazine.

Photos showing the expertise of many of the skittlers can be seen on the skittles photo page.

If you exercise at Hamworthy, our trainer Jayne Frank has mentioned the problem with parking there. She mentions that there is parking round the back and this can be accessed from the front of the Fire Station.

Please pass this on to other PHSG members who exercise there.
