Grant Broster Search 0051

31/03/2016.Surrey Police continue to search for 56-year-old Grant Broster in the River Wey, Guildford.

After a rush to Brighton this morning to pick up some new glass in the shape of the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG HSM OS Sport, to replace the rather tired original 120-300 F2.8, which whilst functioning perfectly, is not as good as image quality as the much later one. the AF is a great improvement (on initial tests) but we shall see when it comes to football at the weekend.

Anyway after four hours standing on a muddy riverbank in my shiny shoes (I usually have a pair of walking boots in the car, but not today) my feet were cold, & the divers were packing in for the night as it was dark, I headed of to another jobby.

Guildford’s Cathedral was being lit up in blue to mark the World Autism Awareness Day, which is on the 2nd of April. So of to find a good view point, I know that it can be done from The Mount, but I wanted a different view, so went drive & walkabouts. The view from the footbridge at the Dennisville roundabout was not very clean, with bits of the University blocking the Cathedral, so a trip up to Park Barn, followed by a trip up Cathedral Hill.

Quite How We Lost this…

GCFC v SCR 0473

28/03/2016 Guildford City FC v Sutton Common Rovers. City’s Tarome HEMMINGS shoots from a direct free kick

City lost 0-1 against Sutton Common Rovers, quite how we managed it I don’t know, having hit the woodwork, tested their keeper, the only answer I have is that we were profligate with our chances. On another day we’d have been 3 or 4 to the good by half time. As usual the opposition & supporters of other teams take the piss out of the appearance of our pitch, but f*ck you, we get our games on, the sand banding had to be done in November after a collapsed drain, so it was never going to look pretty, just grow f*cking up. I don’t hear the same shite about other teams that failed to get games on after a heavy dew, we played after storm katie.

In other, sad news on the same day, a man went missing in the river Wey after kayaking in the swollen river. The police & fire service are still looking to recover the body.
