APGM attends 'Thank You' party at Merley House

I was pleased to be able to accept Maggie Harris's invitation to Merley House for a 'Thank You' party for Dorset Freemasonry and other organisations that have helped young people in Poole during the year. Those present included 'Lush Cosmetics' and 'MyTime', a charity providing respite for young carers at a facility near Worth Matravers.

On arrival, Maggie explained her role coordinating and arranging events and meetings for deserving young people, many of whom were there enjoying football and other outdoor activities laid on for the occasion.

Amongst them were several who attended the Jurassic Coast Adventure last month. Every one of them was courteous and thanked us for the opportunity to enjoy the activity week at Osmington Bay together with other young people from many different areas of the country.

I asked what they liked most, top of the list was raft building followed by air rifle shooting, fencing, dragon boat racing and the big swing. They all had a positive memory of the week including how cold the water was!

After a buffet lunch, Maggie thanked all the providers for their support during the year and presented them with a card signed by the youngsters that attended from Poole.
