Olympic Torch event 13th July


The Olympic Torch visited Poole on Friday 13th July and P&P was there to welcome it as it passed through Branksome. A compact group of P&Pers took to the stage at Branksome recreation ground to wow the assembled masses with two sets of rousing, inspiring music especially selected to ignite the Olympic spirit. Kicking off with “It Don’t Mean a Thing” to set the feet tapping and finishing with that great rock anthem “Don’t Stop Believing” which had them rocking in the aisles. The weather was fine as well so, in the words of Ian in 2012, “It was all good”.

Come on Team GB!


Many thanks to Jood Gibbins and Vicky Westerby for liaising with the organisers to arrange our spot.
Thanks also to Yvonne Edge and Ruth Pettifer who dispersed Play On and Legends flyers to the throng.

Dear All

I am writing to thank you for all your hard work and that of your club members during the Olympic Torch Relay events at Turlin Moor and Branksome Recreation Grounds. The events were very well received by the residents that attended and helped to make the Torch Relay day one that will live long in the memories of those that saw the Olympic Torch.

Without your help, commitment and support we couldn’t have run such popular well attended events and we greatly appreciate your assistance.

Kind Regards

Ross & Gemma
Recreation Development
Borough of Poole
