Wish list becoming a reality

The first wish on our wish list has come true!!

Our battered pool table has been refurbished by A&D Billiards, generously paid for by our amazing donor.

With new cushions, new cover, new set of pool balls and 4 new cues, the table has never looked so good and been so popular. Young people have been turning up at the centre just to see it and try it out!

Thank you so much to HSL Property, especially Philip Haslam from all at Your Ideas 🙂

We would also like to thank A & D Billiards for doing such a great job with our table and donating a further 2 new pool cues to our project, and for finding 6!! pool chalks in the table and our mystery missing yellow ball.

Linking in with the Pool theme…

A big congratulations is also in order for one of our Your Ideas members Anthony Buttery who scooped the Redditch Borough Council Senior Male Sportsman of the Year for 2012 Award. He has had a great year full of achievements in his chosen sport of Pool finishing top of the Region 3 Youth Rankings, and finishing 7th nationally. He is competing at the under 21 trials in Great Yarmouth this year and we wish him all the best.

Here you can see him and Ryan test out the table…
