Mims Davies MP - Vice Patron of QE2 Activity Centre appeal



Wednesday, 13 July, 2016
Eastleigh MP Mims Davies has become a Vice Patron at the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Activities Centre in Bursledon.
The centre, near to Manor Park Farm, opened in 1978 and has evolved over the years to provide day services, holidays and activity sessions for people of all ages with additional needs including learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities and sensory impairment.
Mims accepted the honour when she recently visited the centre to meet with staff and committee members to discuss how she can assist in raising the profile of the centre and identifying funding opportunities for their projects.   
QE2 is looking to complete its fund raising project for a wheelchair accessible boat as well as the replacement of the lodges, one of which is currently used as a day care facility. 
It also offers a wide range of activities including archery, which Mims took the opportunity to try, much to the amusement of those day care adults who were enjoying this sport. 
“Becoming vice-patron of such a wonderful local centre that does so much work to help people of all ages and abilities is a real privilege and I thank the committee for inviting me to do so,” said Mims.
“It offers so much variety and new experiences for all of those who attend either on a regular or occasional basis and I am very much looking forward to working with the dedicated staff and volunteers over the coming years.
“It was also a pleasure to meet everyone and enjoy tea and cake with the Green House day care group, and to try my hand at archery - although I won’t be giving up the day job.”
