Connie Moody proved a big shot when her care home hosted a visit from Poole Field Gun Display team.
The 89-year-old was invited to load a handmade, full-size replica of a Royal Navy field gun, which was being shown off to residents at Colten Care’s Amberwood House in Ferndown.
The visit was arranged by Jack Hargrave, a care assistant at the home who is also a member of Poole Field Gun Display.
He was accompanied by Mike Pattison who founded the group in June with his wife Jo and their sons Matt and Chris. The guns, ammunition boxes, wheels and trailer were all handmade by Mike.
Jan Burns, Amberwood House’s activity organiser, said residents had been fascinated to learn more about Poole Field Gun Display.
She added: “Jack and Mike provided a real insight into the skills and physical demands of wheeling these field guns which weigh up to three quarters of a tonne.”
Poole Field Gun Display trains every Wednesday at Hamworthy Rugby Club.
