It was a very exciting night for the members of  West Dorset Fencing Club in Bridport last Thursday.  With Allan Jay and Bill Hoskyns, our greatest ever British fencers, regularly attending the club sessions, and with Olympic fencer Shirley Parker as founder, chairman and one of the club’s coaches, the fencers in Bridport are accustomed to Olympic celebrities attending their evenings.

Picture of Malcolm French presenting yours truly with a cheque from Bridport Rotary Club. Also thanks to Sherborne Youth Club for a generous donationThis open letter is intended to share a predicament, suggest a course of action and incite some feed back. Put bluntly The Trick Factory in 2010 has lost a lot of money, more than any previous year. I don’t know the exact figure but its around 3K. The reasons for this are lack of support. Either from would be sponsors, contributors or simply people attending the facility, either to use and/or help at the premises.

Classes are sensitively built around Yoga postures combining movement with breath to promote strength, stamina and flexibility. Simple breathing techniques will be introduced to help calm and quieten the mind. These classes are suited to all, as well as to students who have physical issues ie ‘bad backs’ . Michelle is able to modify the postures according to the individual needs of each student.

West Dorset Fencing Club's first championships. It was quite a coup for Shirley Parker, founder of the WDFC less than a year ago, when she persuaded Allan Jay MBE, six times world champion finalist, holder of two Olympic silver medals and Vice-President of the British Fencing Association, to become Honorary President of the Club. Allan kindly donated two championship trophies and was present at Sir John Colfox School, Bridport on Thursday 12th November to present them to the winners.
