1. Emergency Services Family Fun Day – Bournemouth

    June 2, 2017 by Tracy

    Name one thing that your child will find more exciting than a fire engine? Come down to our Emergency Services Family Fun Day which will provide a platform for all of the ‘blue light’ services to demonstrate their appliances, equipment and skills to you and your family in a safe, controlled environment.

    This great family day out is organised by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Police and South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. It is also supported by many local organisations.

    Held every summer, the day involves a wide range of charitable organisations which are integral to the work of the emergency services.

    Since its inception in 2010, the day has raised over £12,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity and SafeWise, the education charity which runs StreetWise in Bournemouth and Firewise at the Weymouth Community Safety Centre.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

  4. Big Duck Weekend!

    May 16, 2017 by Lara Lucas

    Our event is the Big Duck Weekend and its celebrating our 1 year anniversary - we thought it would be a great opportunity to raise funds for DSAA at the same time as being a rural pub it is a very important service for many of our customers and our community.

    We are raising funds in several ways.

    • We have been running a Rubber Duck Raffle which will continue over the weekend
    • We have a number of party games themed around ducks such as apple ducking, ring a duck, duck shy and fish a duck for kids and adults to play - we are asking for a silver or gold coin donation to the DSAA to have a go.
    • We’ll have donation tins in the pub as well.


    The party starts from 12 noon until late each day with a live band, The Tracks Band, playing Saturday night.  We are open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner on both days as well, for anyone that wants to eat but we advise booking as we do get busy.

    We have a large function venue so if the weather is not so nice there is plenty of room indoors otherwise we hope to be out in the garden with the games so it’s great fun for kids.  We’re also running a Name Our Ducks competition!
