Phab Southeast Fun Weekend 2017

The Fun Weekend organised by Phab Southeast in 2015 was very enjoyable, so a dozen members of Oxford Phab signed up to go again in 2017.

Friday

Taking the minibus and a car, we set off on Friday morning, hoping we might even arrive at the coast in time to see the sea before we checked into the hotel. Unfortunately the A34 was completely closed southbound, leading us to enjoy a scenic tour of  Hampshire instead, with a highlight of the services at Sutton Scotney.

Finally we arrived at the hotel, checked in, unpacked and mingled with members from other Phab clubs in the bar until it was time for dinner.

Chatting in the bar

Dinner was a buffet, with a selection of  hot dishes, and was accompanied by entertainment and followed by disco and karaoke .

Saturday

After a buffet breakfast, and a presentation by the CEO of Disabled Motoring UK, we split into groups for activities in the morning and afternoon with a buffet lunch in between.

Edible Christmas Crafts

In the this activity we learnt how to make a snowman, a wreath and a mug of chocolate out of marshmallows, biscuits and other edible goodies.

Amazing Animals

We saw, and in some cases got close to, a range of animals.

Dinner

We got dressed up for a posh dinner.

Dinner was followed by a Disco.

 

Sunday

After an Act of Worship for anyone who wished to attend, and who had got up in time, there was a Team Building exercise, once again making things out of edible material.

This was followed by a full Sunday Lunch, with Roast Beef, Pork or Turkey, and then we had a wrap up session and all went home.
