Titchfield Theatre theatre organ (20 images)

Visit to Thorngate Hall

Titchfield Festival Theatre has now been re-built under very careful supervision (ho, ho). A visit was arranged to the Gosport Theatre Organ at Thorngate Hall to see what might be involved.

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum (2 images)

Nine of us, one left early

Ten of us made our way to the Museum where we were met by Joe, one of the volunteers, who gave us a fascinating insight into the history of the establishment. I must admit that I had been some 10 years previously and it has expanded tremendously since then. We spent some 3-4 hours looking round and although it is a fairly small site there are a great many artefacts, all seemed to have a potted history for explanation, many interactive exhibits and a lot of staff who all seem to have incredible tales to tell. The only comment that I would make is that they need to ensure that they get an aural history from each of them as it would be a disaster if any of them were to die without leaving their stories for posterity.

All in all a very pleasant day out and highly recommended.

The Macmillan Big Coffee Morning (6 images).

What a spread and not a custard cream in sight.

The event held in the Theatre's new bar raised in excess of £160.00 and was a thoroughly enjoyable morning. Many thanks to Cafe Nero for the cups and Tesco for the plates and serviettes. Here's to next year.

How to make a will

Picture of an old will

April - Sue Mason gave an extremely interesting and informative presentation on the necessity for a Will, Power of Attorney, Tenancies in Common and other legal intricacies that, if we haven't thought about it until now, we certainly need to.

Honestly dear - we cleaned it ourselves (7 images)

March - It's not often that the Shed is seen in this state. Taken by Malcolm before anybody was let in. Slowly the shed is coming together.

Fitting a wheel (3 images)

January - It is a lot harder to balance a grinding wheel than you might think. The machine worked brilliantly after refurbishment but an out of balance wheel caused a bit of a headache. Good lads though, they fixed it pretty quickly and now there is a new bench for two grinders and a pillar drill.
