31st January - 3rd February 2020:  The New Forest



The NH4 winter 2020 getaway will be 31st January – 3rd February (3 nights) at:


Sandy Balls Holiday Village

Southampton Road


The New Forest



Tel: 01442 506202

Website: https://www.awayresorts.co.uk/sandy-balls/

They have a variety of accommodation (see link to their website above - I found it very slow!).   Unfortunately, we can't block book for everyone so you will have to call them yourselves - the suggestion would be that you get a group together and someone books for the whole group, taking into account whether you need 2 or 3 nights accommodation. 

Judith has booked our cabin, an 8 berth (3 bedroom) Indulgent with hot tub, by calling the number above and managed to get a discount!!  Might be worth mentioning that you are part of the “Judith Bridges” group!!

Once you have booked could you let me know and then nearer the time I will email out the plan for the weekend. If anyone would like to volunteer to hare either the Saturday or Sunday please let No Entry know.

Facilities include (onsite):


Italian restaurant (possibility for Saturday night?)



indoor swimming pool


evening entertainment

Alpaca Walks (hopefully not on the run!)

cycle hire


Pub – off site
Here's to another great weekend!!
On On!
Damp Patch





Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, The Swanage Weekend has been cancelled in 2020





Tower Lodge Hotel

17 Ulwell Road


BH19 1LF


All bed linen is provided but you will need to bring towels. Please bring garden chairs if you have room in your cars and if the weather is nice we should be able to sit in the garden. A key will be issued for each bedroom together with a front door key. Please leave the bedroom keys in the bowl in the hall before leaving the hotel. Apparently lots of people have locked themselves out of their rooms in the past so there might be a charge if they have to come and let us in.
Please park carefully in front and to side of hotel. There should be enough room. If not you can park in the road opposite, Burlington Road, but don't park under the trees; they leave a vile, sticky deposit on the car.
Wine and beer provided along with bread, cereal, coffee and juice for breakfast.

Here's to a brilliant and hopefully sunny weekend.






Saturday xxth December 2020:  Christmas Party (hopefully)


Farnborough Masonic Hall

Q: Doctor,  I've heard that  cardiovascular exercise can prolong life..  Is this true?  
A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it...don't waste on exercise.  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap.  

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?  

A: You must grasp logistical efficiency.  What does cow eat?   Hay and corn.  And what are these?   Vegetables.  So steak is nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.  Need grain?  Eat chicken.  Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable).  And pork chop can give you 100% of recommended daily allowance of vegetable product. 

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake? 
A:  No, not at all.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way.  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up! 

Q: How  can I calculate my body/fat ratio?  

A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc. 

Q: What  are some of  the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?  

A: Can't think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy is: No pain...good! 
Q:  Aren't fried foods bad for you?   
A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food are fried these day in vegetable oil.  In fact, they permeated by it.  How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!?   

:  Will  sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?  
A: Definitely not!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.  You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.  

Q:  Is chocolate bad for me?   

A:  Are you crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around! 

Q:  Is swimming good for your figure? 

A:  If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me.. 

Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?   

A:  Hey!  'Round' a shape!
