Wow, rubbing shoulders with FA's chief exec Martin Glenn. He said it hadn't been a great week (!) but was delighted to come down to Hamworthy United FC (who would have thought) to open their incredible new all weather pitch. The girls are supported by the Premier League and FA Facilities Fund and fantastic play!
Fabulous volunteers helping make such a difference to our older citizens in Poole - organising lunch clubs, bringing communities together, tackling social isolation, getting people out doing things (photography, shed 'stuff') and so much more. Thank you to them all.
Families and friends are important too!
You find all the best people at Poole's Culture Volunteers. These award winners are helping children read in our libraries, promoting material through social media and IT and keeping our gardens immaculate and inspired at Scaplens Court. Thank you!
The need for speed. Poole Speedway owner Matt Ford with the team's mascots and myself as we watch another great victory for Poole Pirates. Incredible work and vision from Matt to keep the Pirates at the top of their game. More speed but on water this time as we present the winners of the P1 Powerstock racing in Bournemouth. Massive congratulations and well done to Sam and Daisy Coleman. They were just never going to lose! Excellent!
Victoria School in Poole. Such an incredible and important asset as they do so much and constantly up their game and improve what they provide to our children and young people with additional or different needs. Fell in love twice and was moved and impressed by the story behind the Steve Bernard Foundation. Tony Bernard and a team of many have worked tirelessly to raise funds to help enable sporting activities including the provision of new gym equipment at the school.
Really impressed with the Caring Canines team. Thanks to Sue and Julie for your vision and making it all happen and to all the dogs and their wonderful owners who give so much to people in care homes and other places where a visit makes such a difference to their lives.
