  7. It's Father's Day

    It's Father's Day
    He is the one that taught you how to ride a bike, took you on your very first trip to the beach and for long walks on a Sunday afternoon. Honour your Dad this June 21st with a big Father's Day celebration! What Is Father's Day? Father's Day first came about in the early 20th century and originated in the United States. It falls on the third Sunday of June each year so it does not have a fixed date. It is a relatively new celebration that came about as a counterpart for Mother’s Day. With the boom in equal rights developments, Fathers are much more hands on parents than they were when Mother’s Day first came about. We live in an era where we can have stay at home fathers and mothers that fight wars so it seems only fair that we would honour them equally. But Father's Day isn’t just for biological fathers; you can use it as an opportunity to show how much you care about a father figure in your life, a step-dad or grandfather. Continue reading →

    Harry Paye Day 2015
    Arrrr! It’s that time of year again land lubbers! The Pirates of Poole are taking over the Quay for Harry Paye Day!Paye The Pirates of Poole are a local community group striving to keep the maritime history of Poole alive and they also hold events to raise money for local charities and causes. In 2006 they began an event to celebrate Poole’s most famous and notorious pirate of all and thus Harry Paye Day was born! The day was such a success that it became an annual celebration. Who Was Harry Paye? Harry Paye certainly made a name for himself in the 15th Century, so much so that you still hear the tales to this day. Both Paye and his ship, the Mary , appear in the Kings records as being a transport to Spain, but the Spaniards marked him as a thief. He is said to have stolen the gold cross from the Church of Finisterre... We wouldn’t put it past him! Paye became notorious for burning the Spanish city of Gijion, home of his lover Countess Isabel. All of his terrible escapades drove the Spanish to seek revenge on the dreaded Arripaye! In 1405 passing Spanish and French Galleys discovered that Poole was the home of their nemesis and unleashed a deadly fighting force upon the town. When Harry Paye got wind of destruction to his home and that his brother fell in the horrific battle, he took action! He gathered a fleet of ships and captured French and Spanish cargo vessels, seizing copious amounts of booty, including rather of lot of high quality wine. Paye took the cargo back to Poole and shared it with the town’s people in hope that it would ease the suffering that he bought to them. According to the stories they feasted and drank for days after.
