Phab is 60 !

Phab, the national charity, which Oxford Phab is affiliated to, celebrated its 60th birthday this year.

Part of the celebration was a Tea Party at Avon Tyrrell, particularly significant as Phab started in 1957, following a National Association of Youth Clubs camp where one of the participants said he wanted “Opportunity, not pity”.

He presented awards to people who had been working with Phab for many years,

It was a great opportunity to get together with Phab people from all over the country and have a reminder of the things that other clubs are doing.

Also being back in Avon Tyrrell gave us a chance to look at the water activities which we did not have a chance to do on our holiday earlier this year, or last year, or in 2015.
