The Finishing Touches

 

Green Side Up!

Last Saturday a small team of volunteers transformed the lake side of the site with a brand new lawn.

The finished results look fantastic - see below!

2013 Donkey Derby

Some photos from the 18th Annual Donkey Derby held in May 2013.
DD 1 PB Great weather helped us to a record crowd at Eling Recreation Ground. All the old favourite attactions were there and of course the donkeys never stopped entertaining the crowd.The event is our major opportunity to fundraise and makes a huge contribution to the development of our new Aquativity centre at Testwood Lakes. Thanks to all our helpers and sponsors.





Not quite there yet!

 

Saturday 25th May, working party at the new building.

Whilst we are very close to completing the building, it is always the final stages that seem to take more effort, so if you can spare a few hours this Saturday to help out please come and join us.

2013 Donkey Derby is Great Success

Brillian sunshine, record crowds and a great sense of fun!

The 18th Donkey Derby proved to be even more successful than last year's record event. 4300 people made their way to Eling Recreation Ground to enjoy our big fundraising event.

They weren't disappointed, as the Donkeys proved to be even more playful than ever, and even more unwilling to complete the course.  Click here to see the Daily Echo article.

Update from the donkey stables

 Training is in full swing for our annual romp around Eling Recreation Ground on 18th May. However there is some sadness as there are currently a number of donkeys without names and without owners.

A big thank you from Phil the Bag

Just some of the material collected

Thank you to everyone who donated items and helped with the collecting. 

This has raised £243.60 for the group. 

Please don't throw anything away (shoes, bags, towels, any material, school uniform, tea towels, odd socks........) - we will be having another collection in the Autumn.

James Ketchell Photographs

Some photos from the recent visit to Testwood Lakes and Aquativity, by James Ketchell, adventurer and Scout Ambassador.
jk33 James visited Testwood Lakes as part of a tour of Hampshire to raise awareness of his planned adventure to cycle around the world. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the Group were on hand to meet him. As a reminder of his rowing trip across the Atlantic James was invited onto the lake in Pegasus.

After the Atlantic - Testwood Lakes
