For one Night Only -Elvis is in the Building
We welcome Garry Foley this evening, our very own Dorset based Elvis, we have a very exciting evening ahead hearing how Garry a local business and family man turned his passion for Elvis into one of the most award winning and internationally acclaimed Tribute artists. There was only one Elvis Presley but Garry is one of the closest to the King that you will see, with the looks, costumes, voice and on-stage charisma. I personally became a bigger Elvis fan after seeing Garry perform and realised just how much I loved Elvis's music. Garry has had a lot of success and has gained many awards along the way including two recent awards at the European Festival in Birmingham. This has led to many opportunities for Garry not only in the UK but also worldwide, his costumes are exact re-creations of Elvis’ on and off stage wear and are all made by a renowned US costume maker, who holds the original patterns of Elvis’ jumpsuits. This is going to be an amazing event so book now to secure your place.
On this evening we welcome along Mark Horsford from Michael House, Michael House was established over 25 years ago in 1992 and pioneered the first Night Shelter in Dorset. They provide emergency and longer term accommodation to homeless people and provide related day services to those who are vulnerable. It is more than a hostel, it’s a home for people whilst rebuilding their lives to be able to move forward to independent living. Michael House work alongside other agencies and on this evening we will welcome Sally Harvey who founded the AOK Rucksack Appeal (now part of Hope). Homelessness is an emotive subject, something that we see all around us now and there are often questions we would love answered about the crisis that affects people from all walks of life for many different reasons. This will be an interesting and interactive evening, a subject very close to my heart.
Our final event of the year at the Elm Tree Inn is a Christmas Lunch event, we can all enjoy a lovely lunch and on this ocassion we will spend our time getting to know one another and with a few fun festive quizzes. This is a two course Christmas Carvery with a vegetarian main course option and a choice of deserts so once you have booked on to the event I will send you through the menu choices. Really looking forward to celebrating our final event of the year for Live Laugh Love Ringwood together and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas - Linda xx

'Travels with Martha' with Travel Author Leigh Walton
An amusing and insightful story of travelling through 18 countries in Europe with her Mother Rosie, and their two helpers, Leigh & Tom Walton during 2013 and 2014!!
Along with my husband Tom, and our two Parson Russell Terriers – Rosie and Martha -we have spent over two years travelling and experiencing some twenty plus European countries (with a couple of last minute flights back to the UK when family ‘challenges’ occurred). Martha (a very clever canine) blogged the trip, which I have edited in order for ‘Travels with Martha‘ to be available as an e-book and paperback in August 2015.
