Michael was delighted to be invited to the pantomime in Broadstone for its 40th anniversary production on the Wizard of Oz. Michael and his daughter had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and Michael was impressed by the professionalism of the performance.
As in previous years, Michael asked local school children to design his Christmas cards. There were some fantastic entries, with a lovely range of designs. They are being sent out across Dorset and beyond. Congratulations to those children who had their designs chosen.
Michael was delighted to be able to help as a marshal at the 30th Wimborne parade raising money for Save the Children. Despite the awful weather, there was a good turnout, and people enjoyed a great display of festive floats and music.
Michael was pleased to be able to attend the Broadstone Christmas Parade as a judge on Small Business Saturday. The event was very well attended, and the weather was not as bad as it could have been! Lots of local groups and organisations attended.
Michael spent an uncomfortable night sleeping outside with only cardboard to protect him from the elements. It was to raise money for the Poole charity Routes to Roots, and was with the church youth group in Lytchett Minster.
