Fun and Games at French Weir!

The Friends of French Weir Park held their annual family fun day on Sunday 12 August 2012 which was a great success in glorious sunshine.

We were pleased to take part in the celebrations with our “human fruit machine”.  It proved a popular attraction…children played for free and received a bag of sweets and a balloon if their choice of three fruits matched those appearing on the machine…who says lawyers never do anything for nothing!

Lyme Bay Corporate Fishing Day

A great day was had by all off shore fishing at Lyme Bay on the 2nd August 2012.

Thanks to Andrew Malony of ‘ArtisanSouthWest’ for all the organisation and Dorset Charter Fishing for the boat. Not many fish were caught but that means there are plenty more fish in the sea!
