The Exeter ROH Assembly have just had the pleasure of visiting the Wessex ROH Assembly and this was the second event that the two Assemblies have shared. The first one was when the Wessex ROH Assembly came to Exeter, and after the Assembly Meeting, had the pleasure of a boat trip from Exmouth to Topsham which included indulging in the famous cream tea on the boat.

The second was on Saturday, 23rd. July, when the Exeter ROH Assembly visited Wessex at Poole in Dorset and once again a great time was had by all. Wessex laid on a boat trip around Poole Harbour. Everyone enjoyed the trip which included a commentary on the islands in the Harbour, which includes Brown Sea Island, owned by the National Trust which is a sanctuary for the red squirrel, and incidentally the site of the first Boy Scout camp early in the 20th. Century, hosted by the founder Baden-Powell himself. After the boat trip we had a Hog Roast and what a fantastic end to a wonderful day.

We hope that Exeter and Wessex can continue these mutual visits next year in 2012 and extend an open invitation to any other ROH Assembly that would like to join us on these very enjoyable excursions.
