This looks interesting, on tomorrow night (8th May)…

BucksFHS Exploring Churchyards, The Lost Language of Headstones

Many of us wander around churchyards and cemeteries, tracing family members or just out of interest. This illustrated talk by Kevin Varty explores the sometimes hidden meanings of the symbols which are often carved into the headstones, revealing a lost language from the past. The talk also shows how these symbols have been used by the funeral business, especially during Victorian times.

Wotton Underwood Village Fete

£3 per person £2 concession Children U12 go free
Free Parking

The Wotton Underwood Village Fete is held bi-annually on the grounds of Wotton House, with the kind permission of David Gladstone. Wotton House is an incredible Grade 1 listed Manor house in the English Baroque style dating back to the 18th Century, with grounds landscaped in the early 1800’s by Capability Brown. We are extremely lucky to be able to host the fete here in such an incredible and historic setting! The fete is a charitable cause in aid of the village Church which features in the Domesday Book of 1086!

The fete has been created to be a fabulous family day out with something for everyone. From tours of the fabulous Wotton House itself (additional charge), Children’s games, livestock on show, a Dog Show (so please don’t leave Fido at home!!), a festival of ‘Celebration’ in flowers in the Church, food by ex-Michelin Star Chef Phillip Britten and drinks in the Bar Box (a great new concept for drinks)! There will be Live music, a Tombolo, a Raffle with loads of prizes and a main cash prize of £100!!

Also available on sale will be local produce, teas and cakes, ice-creams, bric-a-brac, and plants.
With the setting described above and all of the activities taking place, there is no-where you should rather be!!

Bourne End Documentary Star In “The Road To Gymkhana” Which Premieres on 27th March

Adam Elder has cars in his blood or to be more exact….  fast cars. Growing up in Bourne End, many of us know Adam & would certainly agree he was born to do this.

You may have heard of drifting…. well Gymkhana GRiD involves a lot of “donuts”, tyre smoke & powerslides making it an exciting sport to follow so the documentary “The Road To Gymkhana”  which premieres on 27th March, could be an interesting film for you to watch. Four big names in the Gymkhana Grid world… Ken Block, Petter Solberg, Oliver Solberg & Shane Lynch (THE Shane Lynch of Boyzone), follow Adam & 5 other drivers during their everyday lives as well as their racing careers.  

The film highlights how young men who work fulltime in other industries, can race against the world’s best without coming from a wealthy & privileged  background.  The film crews followed Adam to work, to the garage where Tony Elder, his Dad helps with the mechanics & to his home, interviewing the family who have supported him in many different ways for the past 4 years.

The film details how with focus, determination & a lot of hard work, you can achieve success. It shows the difference between Adam who puts every spare minute & penny into working towards his success compared to young men who are on million pound budgets. Adam has managed to achieve a standard in 4 years that usually takes others 10 years. Adam said “I have to make great sacrifices in order to follow my dream but it’s all worth it although I couldn’t do it without the huge support I receive from my family & fiancé, Lindsay.”

In the days after the premiere he has been invited to appear on a radio show, photo shoots & there is a possible breakfast TV interview. Adam also has 2 businesses to help financially, he has a recovery vehicle & is on call for breakdowns & has just become a UK distributor for Zestino Tyres who are also one of his sponsors. Sponsors are incredibly hard to get but he has many including Competition Clutch, EBC Brakes, Everything Drift, Rock Tech Wrapping & Funk Motor Sport amongst others, not forgetting Bourne End Garages.

Competing in over 80 small races & 4 big events in-order to get this far, his first “big” event was Gymkhana Grid in Madrid, a European Event & more recently Gymkhana Grid in South Africa which was televised by Sky TV in December. When I asked what other racing interests him, he said he would love to compete in World Rally Cross events one day.

This all came about after a serious brush with the law over a driving incident made Adam stop & think about how he could channel his passion. After following another local man, Luke Woodham who Adam now often competes against, he realised this could be the ideal way to turn his passion into a legal career. Hard work & many of thousands of pounds later, here he is…. waiting to hear if he qualifies for the World Finals in South Africa later this year.

“The Road To Gymkhana” will become available shortly after the premiere on Amazon Prime. If you fancy watching Adam race, he will be competing in Coventry Motofest on 2nd & 3rd June 2018 taking place in Coventry city centre.

 

To follow Adam or if you are interested in Zestino Tyres you can contact him via his Facebook page.
