Event Reports

Coast to Coast Concert held last Wednesday in aid of HHNCI – Bryan Scarfe

For those who didn’t make it, you missed a very good evening’s entertainment. We congratulate the
Cadenza Choir and all those who put the evening together on such a varied and entertaining
programme. The nautical theme was a great idea and with music from Elgar through to Simon &
Garfunkel and Irvin Berlin, I think all musical tastes were well catered for. All the soloists were
outstanding and showcased their exceptional talents The readings by choir members were great fun
in particular Lolley Seager’s description of her visit to ‘The Lookout’ ; and ‘Poor Trace’ by our own
John Campbell.

Thank you to everyone involved. I feel sure
HHNCI very much appreciate the great effort
put in on their behalf. It is a great pity that our
‘Outgoing Station Manager’ didn’t round off
the evening by dancing a Sailors Hornpipe.
Barbara and Bryan Scarfe

Sea Sunday – Ed Essery


Watchkeepers, the Mayor of Bournemouth, BCP Council’s Director for the Environment, Councillor Eddie Coope and our own NCI Liaison Trustee – Tim Colquhoun (pictured left with Brian Roberts) along with partners, members of the church and the local community made up the 50 to 60 people who attended the delightful service to celebrate Sea Sunday and 25 years of the NCI. After a murky start to the afternoon, the sun shone upon us. Attendees were marshalled for photographs taken by Caroline Walker who took her life in her hands by standing in the middle of the road to “get the shot”. We then enjoyed tea and cakes provide by the parish. We also used the opportunity to take Tim up for his first visit to the Lookout – he was impressed by all that we have achieved. A special word of thanks must go to Chris Colledge who almost single-handedly organised this event. Further photos from the event can be seen on our HHNCI Facebook page (Facebook – Hengistbury Head NCI).
