Thursday 14/4/16 St John’s Ambulance Celebration of Achievements

April 14, 2016

This evening we were pleased to join the St John’s Ambulance Cadets in Bedhampton to celebrate their achievements in 2015.

Two of them had raised sponsorship and fundraised to go on an International Camp last December in Hong Kong. We did enjoy hearing about their trip. We also watched several young people being enrolled into this local St John’s Ambulance Unit.

St John’s do such good work in our Community, it was a pleasure to support them this evening.


Thursday 14/4/16 Hart Civic Day

April 14, 2016

Today with other members of the “Chain Gang” we attended the chairman of Hart’s Civic Day.

Our ¬†first visit of the day was to Stratfield Saye House where we were greeted by The Duke of Wellington. After a tour of the house we also went to see the First Duke’s Funeral Carriage, a magnificent vehicle which was pulled by 12 black shire horses.We then visited The Royal School of Engneering at Gibralter Barracks, Minley, where we watched various displays and had lunch.

Our last visit of the day was to The Basingstoke Canal where we had a trip on the John Pinkerton 2. A very enjoyable day when one of our neighbours could showcase their District.
