Boccia – with our new Boccia set

We played Boccia in the John Wesley Room.
DSCN1965Using our new Boccia set – we had been borrowing Boccia sets before now to play.
DSCN1967The John Wesley Room is shorter than the Hall, so we set up tables as a backstop.
DSCN1969Knocking the white target ball away from its initial position is a perfectly valid – and sometimes successful – tactic.

and here we are on video !


Oxford Phab held a Zumbathon on  Saturday June 20th 2015
Our poster for the event is here zumba fundraising – Please print it and display it, or forward it to anyone you know who may be interested.
Zumba is a popular activity on club nights, but for this fundraising event we want others to come, have fun, get fitter, and contribute to our club funds !
There will be Stalls and Refreshments from 10am to 1pm, and Zumba from 11am until 12:30pm
The cost is £5 per person, the Zumba Instructor will be George Martini, and the event took place at Wesley Memorial Methodist Church Hall, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford, OX1 2DH
In the end we raised over £400 for club funds – thank you to everyone who contributed or took part, particularly to George and his friends.

Beetle Drive in conjuction with the John Wesley Society

On Friday 27th April we held a Beetle Drive, in conjunction with the John Wesley society, in aid of the Wesley Memorial Open Doors project.
The evening gave Phab members and JWS and church members a chance to socialise, and get to know each other a little. As well as playing Beetle, we ate hot dogs, and Beetle Biscuits. There were prizes (of chocolate bars) for the best drawn Beetles. Unfortunately the prize for best Beetle costume went unawarded this time, so someone missed out on even more chocolate.DSCN0413

First Aid Training

We had an evening of First Aid Training. We learned how to put someone into the recovery position, how and when to apply basic cardio-pulmonary resuscitation CPR), how to report an emergency and many other useful skills. We also had a lot of fun !
