Joint Crowdfunder For The Prout Bridge Project & Broadwindsor PTA

Jo and Dani have made the mad decision to take on the challenge of the Bantham Swoosh. 6km (3.75 miles) down a river in Devon on 16th July 2022.

Now, they love swimming outside and you‘ll often find them on a local beach however, 6km of swimming is an awful long way in what will still be pretty cold water. Before signing up to this swim the furthest neither of them had swum outside is about 1km so they are having to work hard for 6km to be achievable. They will whole heartedly appreciate any money you can give to help get them over the finish line. All money raised on their Crowdfunding page will be split between The Prout Bridge Project in Beaminster and Broadwindsor School PTA.

Broadwindsor PTA are currently raising money to go towards new outdoor play equipment that will be used by all of the children throughout the school.

The Prout Bridge Project is a small local charity that makes a big difference by delivering youth work, community activities and mental health support to people in West Dorset. Money raised will go towards supporting young people’s mental health and well-being in one-to-one and group sessions. The need for this is huge and they currently have a waiting list. They are fundraising to grow their team so they can help more young people who are struggling.

Please support both these worthy organisations & donate HERE. Thank you!

Thank You From Broadwindsor PTA

A BIG thank you to everyone who joined us on Monday’s walk and to all those who have sponsored. The total raised so far is £1000! 

It was quite a climb…


Around 50 of us from Broadwindsor Primary School gathered to climb to the top of Lewesdon Hill.
We enjoyed lots of cake when we got there and some Pygmy goats even joined us to say hello!

It was wonderful to have  the school community come together and we hope to make it annual event.

Broadwindsor School Sponsored Walk – Monday, 2nd May 

Raising funds for new and improved outdoor adventure play equipment, the pupils of Broadwindsor School are walking to the highest point in Dorset – Lewesdon Hill by way of a Sponsored Walk on Bank Holiday Monday, 2nd May.
The children will be meeting on the MUGA at 10am on Monday, 2nd May, there will be squash and cake for all to share at the top.

Organised by the school’s PTA, Chairman Martin Burt commented “We are so lucky to have this on our doorstep and we hope that even the littlest legs can reach the top! For the past two years our sponsored walks were during lockdowns, so it will be lovely to enjoy a walk together this year!
The play equipment is chosen with the help of the children through the school council.

Save Our Pub Gig Postponed & New Rules At Comrades Hall

The Steering Group had organised a FUNdraising gig for The White Lion, Broadwindsor on Saturday, 15th January, 2022

Below is the content of an email sent out to all hirers of the Comrades Hall. Consequentially, the event has been postponed.

QUOTE:

This is a general email to all hirers to give you information regarding the latest changes in Covid regulations as announced by the government on Wednesday, and how it may affect your use of Comrades Hall.
At the present time, Comrades Hall remains open for use.

From FRIDAY 10th DECEMBER:

Comrades Hall is considered an ‘indoor public space’ and therefore mask wearing should be mandatory inside the premises. This applies to any users of Comrades Hall over the age of 11, except for those who are exempt, or where a separate risk assessment/ group association policy is in place for youth organisations.

However, where hirers and their users are sitting down to eat or drink, or carrying out exercise, then masks do not need to be worn. In these circumstances, participants should put their masks back on once they are able to do so, and when moving around within the premises. Please ensure you as the hirer explain this to your participants should your use of the hall include this option.
More information can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54373904

Due to the small capacity of Comrades Hall events, currently no covid vaccine passport would need to be shown for any event or hire, but it would be good practice to ask your participants to take an LFT before attending an event at the hall.

All other information remains as per my previous email and according to https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do

75yr old Resident To Do Hallowe’en Fundraising Parachute Jump With Daughter

Not as old and travelling not as far as William Shatner, 75 year old, Broadwindsor resident, Peter Davies and his daughter Emellia have arranged to do a 15,000 feet parachute jump on October 31st for the Royal Navy Association. The duo have launched a Crowdfunder page with all the proceeds going to the RNA who could do with an input. Please show your support by visiting their Crowdfunding page:

If you have any difficulty, try copying the following link into your browser: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/peter-emellias-parachute-jump-for-royal-navy-1

Both parachute jumps have already been paid for privately and 100%* of the money raised will be given to Bridport RNA (*after Crowdfunder fees have been deducted).

Peter has been a full member with the RNA for a number of years and is a Trustee of Bridport Sea Cadets. His daughter Emellia has been a long term supporter of the RNA and indeed she suggested the parachute jump at Dunkeswell Airfield.  The jump is set to take place in the morning of Sunday, 31st October.
The Chairman, Charles Davis, Honoury Secretary, Robin Bickers & all committee members of Bridport’s RNA have pledged their full support for this project.
This project is also being supported by Broadwindsor.org to enable full transparency of all donations received. Please direct any queries to: info@broadwindsor.org

Young people from our Parish and surrounding areas are always welcome to attend Bridport Sea Cadets. Read more about them HERE.

An excited Peter commented:  “It was Emellia’s idea! Even a 50p donation would be great as they’re really poor! Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Broadwindsor.org’s Editor and local photographer Annie Collins will be there to report on the event 🙂
