On Monday 9th September a few of our beneficiaries took part in a day's fishing near Wisbeach. On average of 2-3 hours per session around 20-50 fish were caught and they weren't small!
More events will take place even over the colder months, weather being dependent. However if you are brave enough to face the elements do not hesitate to contact us at the Bridge Centre.
Thanks to Mark for organising the day out, and those who attended for supporting him!

It is that time of year once again, the Chain Gang have been working hard throughout the year in preperation for the main event! Over 4 days Mark and Karl took part in the cycling event on the Isle of Man including a ride of 37.46 miles in 3 hours, 35 mins and 8 seconds on a curciuit that climbed up to a height of around 1400ft with an average tempreture of 14.5C. 
 
An impressive achievnment on the famous TT Circuit using a human engine, although we are unsure on how big its cubic compacity is. It wasn't all hard work, as the guys enjoyed a trip to Snaefell Summit on Electric Railway, a pizza at Alessandro's and a visit to the Terrace Chippy!
 
Its great news for Mark, as although there is no offical record for the event. It was confirmed by the race times that he has completed the course in the fastest time ever recorded at 4 hours 40 minutes (including the stops) race time being the above number. After reciving this time, Mark has sent his timings to the Guiness World Record. The process can take 24 weeks to be decared and confirmed. 
 
We anxiously await the results! Congraulations to both contenders!

On Tuesday 24th September a small group took part in Richards Northern Island meeting. This was an informal discussion about events, equipment and feelings/memories that supporting or serving in the Providence during your military service has left with you. It was a difficult time for many Service Personal.

Recent discussions focused on the weapons, tactics and equipment - also looking at how equipment and experience was used in other parts of HM Forces to either greater or lesser effect; such as the NI Gloves becoming standard issue rather than woolen gloves. Richard had an array of pictures which helped to trigger discussions about the times and Operation Motorman in July 1972.

If you would like to attend please refer to our events page for more information on timings and dates, or alternatively contact us directly for more information.

The room has been making vasts amounts of progress as the painting begins! the walls have been painted white and the skirting ans window ledges black. Soon the finishing touches will be in progress including the small kitchen area to be revamped and the carpet tiles to be placed.

The room is turning into a great asset, allowing informality and privacy for conversations to take place while the other work in the centre continues. The 121 room will have a kitchen and seating area in a cafe style setting where anyone will be welcome to have confidential chats about their situation.

The weekend before October The Bridge organised and celebrated Octoberfest for the beneficiaries.

A group of Lederhosen wearing Veterans relived their German experiences by celebrating the event. This was accompanied by Monika's Octoberfest Quiz and a lovely selection of German music, food and of course BEER!

The evening was accompanied by stories of Germanic daring-do, a few daring-dont's.. Overall a fantastic evening of facts and fun. Thank you Helen for the cooking, and all those who attended for a WUNDERBAR evening!
