Great Day at the Regionals in Bristol

 

Everyone had a wonderful day on Monday at the Regoinals. Congratulations to Victoria and Ben, who both qualified for the Nationals and will compete on this coming Sunday. Lucy did very well coming 4th in her class.

The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) came to the Pembroke Centre, to present a sports first aid kit and some bottles water.

 

We would like to thank them for their generosity.

The Joy of the RDA

 

The joy I feel when I go riding,

All my stress, anxieties and sad thoughts are gone.

I'm so happy, excited and feel in control.

The joy of riding is the highliht of my week.

 

I feel free from worrying about my health conditions.

I feel confident, relaxed and at peace.

I know on each ride I'm learning something new.

I get such a buzz from horse riding,

I am so proud and honoured to ride with the RDA.

 

Wow the joy of the Wilton RDA...

Memorial Tree Planting

 

Last week, three dedicated gardeners Clare Eagle, Jane Pope, Richard Ellis and Jo Pay planted two superb specimens of ornamental Japanese Cherry Trees in the grounds of the RDA Pembroke Centre, as a Memorial to many who have been part of our lives here.

 

Our grateful thanks to all those at Langford Trees for their help and generous contribution.

 

 

Volunteers braved the cold on Monday for a Fire Extinguisher Demo and Training - it looks like they could do with a good fire to keep warm!
