London to Paris Cycle Ride June 2015

London to Paris

Badby Park and Patron Capital supported Stoke Mandeville National Spinal Charity, with Tim Street and David Griffiths taking part in the 330 mile Cycle ride over 3 days at an average speed of between 25km-27km per hour. Temperature for the ride was way over 30 degrees celsius each day and very energy sapping for the riders. All the pain was forgotten though when the 400 strong peloton rode with police escort through the cobbles of the Champs Elysees and around the Eiffel Tower.

Badby Chicks

Badby welcomed a clutch of 10 eggs to incubate and hatch over a period of a week to become 'Happy Chicks'. This all happened thanks to a suggestion from one of our Carers, Laura Isom. Residents and staff were able to watch the eggs hatch and the tiny chicks grow quickly over the week they were at Badby. Many residents and staff enjoyed holding the chicks and watching their individual antics.
