The Big Lunch and Dog Show Report
3rd June 2018

FoBP had a presence at The Big Lunch and Dog Show with our Gazeebo and Display plus some Stone Painting for our younger visitors.

The weather was kind this year and there was a steady flow of visitors throughout the day. Our Stone Painting proved popular, if somewhat messy at times, but nice to see the creative talents in action.

                           

 


Easter Fun Trail Report
1st April 2018

On the overcast but thankfully dry morning of Easter Sunday we held our first ever Easter Fun Trail. The trail started and finished at the, Friends of Par Beach, beach hut and encompassed the beach, orchid field and dunes. Along this route were eight Easter egg markers containing an interesting fact, relating to the environment, and an alphabetical letter to be noted. At the end of the trail the participants had to work out that the noted letters spelt 'Beach Hut' and all children were rewarded with a Cadbury Cream Egg whilst the parents were given a bag for life. 21 family groups participated, totalling 37 adults and 40 children, and a good time was had by all.

The picture shows a group of happy children recieving their eggs and the adults with their bag for life whilst the family dog wonders where his reward is!


Spring Beach Clean Report
4th March 2018

Today we held our annual Spring Beach Clean, and the weather gods were most kind to us. Following the bitterly cold spell, with snow and wind, it was touch and go that the event could take place, and even with a sudden warming the day before it decided to rain heavily through the night right up to 07:30hrs this morning. Low and behold, the rain stopped, the clouds passed away and the sun came out to give us a glorious spring day.
