???? Quiz ????

a quizOn Saturday night 14th November a group of residents and a few visitors had a great evening pitting their general knowledge against the fiendish inquizitor Phil Heller. A good mix of young and old meant that only a few of the questions went unanswered despite a lot of head scratching. This time Phil tried out a variation on his usual style of music section. Despite his prediction there were one or two teams that came up with very strong scores. At the end of the evening two teams had drawn so a tie breaker had to be employed to sort out the eventual winners.   

AGM Report

For those of you unable to get to the NMDCA AGM on Tuesday 30th June the warm evening started with a refreshing glass of Pimms. Chairman Richard Mollon reviewed the work of the NMDCA over the last year. He welcomed two new additions to the committee who will join us at our regular meetings to discuss issues and plan forthcoming events.

Some of the residents raised the problems encountered by users of the Hall. They were finding the extra Nursery equipment was making alternative uses more and more difficult. If other people have also experienced issues with either the booking or use of the Hall please let us know so we can raise it with Yellow Dot.

Future events were discussed including a themed 70s-80s night with live entertainment and an ever popular quiz later in the year.

Fascinating Introduction to the Flexford Reserve

Walk on the Wild side

The weather was perfect for the our guided evening walk led by warden Claire Bishop from the Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust. Discovering that there were so many different varieties of wild flowers present in Lower Flexford Woods, evidence of wildlife and why cattle are brought in to graze the land, was very interesting.  Claire kept everyone captivated, so much so that time flew and the walk carried on until 9pm! Ric Green from Rosemore Grove will often be found with volunteers in the woods, clearing and managing the woodland area. If you see him, do stop for a chat and he will tell you what they are doing. Ric is also a member of the Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust.
