September


September has been a busy month at QE2 Activity Centre.  Team Q went away for their second expedition of the year.  Following their very successful trip to the Isle of Wight at the beginning of the season they headed on down to Swanage in Dorset.  They found time for fish & chips, cockles and mussels and the amusement arcade but also went hiking, had a trip on a steam train and kayaked to Old Harry Rocks.  Where to next year?

The Gold Day Service got together with Team Q and paid a visit to Beaulieu Motor Museum.  



The GreenHouse organised a very successful Macmillan Coffee Morning.  There was a fine assortment of cakes, and a good number of friends and family showed up to share them.  The morning raised over £170 for Macmillan, a very worthwhile charity.  Well done to the Green Team, everyone who provided cakes and all those who came along to support us.

Team Q Expedition

On the eve of Team Q's expedition to Swanage next week here's some pictures from their argosy to the Isle of Wight in April.

get set

ready

go!





In April Team Q set off on their Isle of Wight Expedition.  It was a journey that started on foot, continued by boat, on foot again and then on the bus, followed by a ferry trip.  And that was just to get past Gosport.  


A second ferry trip took the Team from Portsmouth across to the Isle of Wight where another walk led to Kite Hill and a welcome campsite.




The following day Team Q moved on to East Cowes where there was time for some fun.


Lots of fun!

Dambusters!




After a second night under canvas it was time for Team Q to pack their bags and set off home.  There was still quite a journey to go.  Next step was the ferry back to the mainland.



A ferry, a bus and a train back to Bursledon.


and finally . . . 


a walk home alongside the Hamble River.  Well done, guys - and have fun on your Swanage trip.
