Jottings I watched Guildford Rugby win their quarter final match against Old Priorians the other week and they are now at the time of writing, just one game away from playing the final of the RFU London and South East Region Intermediate Cup at Twickenham; yes, THE Twickenham. By the time you read this I will know if I am off to Twickers on 3rd May. Fingers crossed! Also huge congratulations to Guildford on topping their league - promotion next year. Actually, I’ve been quite busy this month; a few weeks ago I went to G Live and saw Rumours of Fleetwood Mac, a tribute band who were absolutely brilliant. Then I went to Haslemere Halls and saw The Haslemere Players’ production of South Pacific. I’ve been to a few of their productions and they are always good, I think for me, this might just be the best ever. For an amateur group they really achieve a fantastic standard. How lucky we are to have all this locally. Brooklands Museum and the Vintage Sports Car Club (VSCC) have confirmed details of the Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival for 2014. In true Brooklands tradition, it will be held on the weekend closest to the date the original track opened in 1907, which is 14th and 15th June. The two-day event will feature Speed Trials, Ascents, Driving Tests and the prestigious Double


Twelve Concours across the Museum site and at neighbouring MercedesBenz World, giving spectators and competitors a huge variety of motoring action. You can find a full list of classes on the Double Twelve pages of the Museum website along with entry forms to download at and at the VSCC website at www. Entrants will enjoy an inclusive hospitality area in the charming, period splendour of the Edwardian Clubhouse, the chance to drive on motoring ‘hallowed ground’ and when competing, will be in the capable hands of the VSCC and Brooklands Marshals. Surrey County Show, which takes place on Monday 26th May, is the biggest one-day agricultural show in the country and it brings an incredible number of beautifully presented farm animals – cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry to Stoke Park, within walking distance of Guildford High Street. The countryside with its milking parlours and shearing sheds, sheep pens and duck ponds literally comes to town. There is a strong focus on local food, a full line-up of ring entertainment, a major horse show and loads of shopping. One of the highlights of the Show will be the magnificent black cavalry horses of the King’s Troop Royal Artillery, who will be galloping WWI gun carriages across


the grand arena. Heavily discounted tickets are available online at www. Adults £13.50 (£17 on show day); Seniors £10 (£13 on show day); children £5.50 (£6 on show day); families £34.50 (£40 on show day). Grayshott Folk Club has two gigs coming up in May.
