NMTTC MEMBERS MAKE THE NEWS!
Photos of two New Milton Table Tennis club members graced the pages of the New Milton Advertiser last weekend. Club Secretary Bev Scott-Johns was pictured with fellow members of the Mudeford Wood Charitable Trust and Councillor Sue Spittle at the recent Fun Day held at the Mudeford Wood Community Centre. This was held to celebrate the trust’s recent takeover of the day-to-day management from the Christchurch Borough Council and raised the fantastic sum of £1900 for the facility. Bev is Treasurer of the trust and has worked tirelessly along with the other members to ensure the survival of the centre, which is the club’s major playing venue.
Alan Gordon was also in celebration mood when he heard that Christchurch Borough Council had decided not to go ahead with the South Shore Bike Park for Chewton Bunny, a local beauty spot. Alan, who is the chairman of the Chewton Bunny Action Group, said at the time of the original proposal “Very importantly we are absolutely not against improved facilities for all sports groups in the borough, but we strongly feel that there could not be a worse place than the Chewton Bunny area to build a bike track”. Alan was pictured with fellow campaigners at the beauty spot.
Well done to both club members for standing up to be counted in their respective successful campaigns against the local council – the New Milton Table Tennis Club is proud of you. We need look no further for fine examples of Mr Cameron’s “Big Society” in action!
