The Olympic Circus Comes to Town
Even little ole Derby has been treated to the once in a lifetime spectacle of a sweaty man running through
the streets bearing a naked flame!
Accompanied by a large entourage of police outriders, officials, marshals and Olympic sponsors this was the scene
in Derby's Bold Lane on the evening of Friday 29 June.
Hundreds of onlookers waited patiently with flags and whistles to catch a fleeting glimpse of the iconic torch
as it made its through the city of Derby to Darley Park.
It's all go in the world of estate management. Recently, Guthrie went over to Penmaenuchaf North Wales
to assist Nigel Miller (company director) with a further assesment of the victorian water
channel which is due to be repaired.
Whilst he set up camp in the woods, Nigel checked in to the deluxe
edwardian Engine Shed undeterred by the faint whiff of ageing DDT and a lively bee infestation!
The room service was a bit of a let down but the rates are very reasonable.
A four tonne digger was hired for the weekend and plenty of fun was had grubbing out nuisance maple
saplings and brambles from the top paddock. Nige even found an old tractor plough which could be a collector's
item – especially if you've got a 1956 Massey Fergusson.
Spring is on its way and the clocks change soon. Thoughts turn to a bit of camping. Read more about the
delights of wild camping in Snowdonia.
Mr & Mrs Euston
On 6 March it was the fourth wedding anniversary of Mike & Caroline Euston.
As such, we thought it was time to republish their wedding photographs.
Nina Whitby on BBC Radio
For some reason, Nina Whitby was recently on the Radio Derby breakfast show being interviewed about
her wedding day on the Isles of Scilly. The feature was looking at alternatives to traditional church
weddings. If you want to know more, a recording is available via e-mail.
You can find the Scilly wedding photos on Nina's website.
