Walk don’t run

There are some great local annual events that happen in Gloucestershire.  Most are steeped in tradition like the Cheese Roll, Randwick Wap and Bisley Well Dressing and others like the Tetbury cart races are more for fun than for pleasing the seasons.  At the weekend, I covered the Meningitis Now Five Valleys Walk for The Gloucester Citizen.  It was great to see people of all aged step out and enjoy the countryside and help raise money for a good cause.  I talked to a few walkers who had personal experience of Meningitis and felt the need to give something back.  As a parent I’ve found myself waiting in an emergency ward with a young son to get the all clear following a suspected case.  The walk is on my do to list so hopefully next year.

These two pictures are from the event.  The family shot was used as the papers big picture.  While the near silhouette is just my favourite.

An eventful evening

I was recently hired by an international company holding a week long training seminar in the Cotswolds.  I went to my first appointment with them fully armed as briefs can change with last minute requests.  First thing I was told was to lose the suite and tie as they said they were a very chilled out company and boy they were not kidding. The two pictures are from their after dinner games which formed part of their week.  I have to say I’ve never enjoyed an event so much and nice to see business people not take themselves too seriously. The pictures are of a fancy dress All Blacks Haka.
