NEW FOREST SUPPORT FOR HELP FOR HEROES

[This EDM was tabled jointly with Desmond Swayne MP.]

That this House salutes the many volunteers throughout the UK who raise substantial funds for Help for Heroes; congratulates, in particular, Elaine Husband, Mary and Nick Pattison, Shelagh Morgan, Lynn England and Claire Parsons of Brockenhurst, whose October 2013 Charity Weekend at the Balmer Lawn Hotel raised £30,348; notes that previously, in October 2011, the same team had raised £23,500; and wishes them every success in surpassing even these totals in October 2015, when the next in this admirable, enjoyable and productive series of events is to be held.

FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF CALSHOT ACTIVITIES CENTRE

[This EDM was tabled jointly with 21 other MPs. It was eventually supported by 28 Members of Parliament.]

That this House congratulates Calshot Activities Centre, on the Solent, for its 50 years of training, education, recreation and adventure courses provided to tens of thousands of children and adults from Hampshire and beyond; notes that its outstanding facilities include skiing, climbing, sailing, canoeing and velodrome cycling; believes that its character-building work is a fitting successor to Calshot's historic role as home to Royal Air Force flying boat squadrons, Schneider Trophy contests and Royal Air Force High Speed Flight attempts on the world speed record; welcomes the vital support it receives from Hampshire County Council; and, accordingly, wishes all present and former participants, instructors, staff and supporters a successful week of 50th anniversary celebrations in July 2013.
