Back in January, Trevor Sapey travelled from Portsmouth to talk about the Mary Rose. The evening was very interesting and fun. He brought along a lot of artefacts and costumes which the members tried on. We learnt a lot about how boats were built and information about King Henry VIII and his many wives. A good evening was had by all with many laughs. Thank you to Trevor.
Members of Brockenhurst Gateway were invited to visit Brockenhurst fire station to have a look around the station. We all had a good look around and asked lots of questions. Lots of members went on the fire engine. It was very interesting. Unfortunately, the visit was cut short because the firemen were called out to a fire. It was very exciting for our members watching them go on a shout and finding out what happens when an emergency call comes to the station. We have been invited back at a later date. Thank you to all the firemen at Brockenhurst fire station.
At Brockenhurst Gateway we have started doing wood work projects. We have started off the year making our own planters and putting some plants into them. The members really enjoyed making them and a lot of the members gave them away as gifts. The next wood work project is making clocks which should be fun.
