Surrey County Youth Wind Orchestra

SCYWO

This is the Surrey County Youth Wind Orchestra (Scywo) performing last night at the Playhouse Theatre in Epsom.  Scywo is directed by Hugh Craig and its leader is Selina Ley.

I was filming the concert with my camcorder when a manager of the theatre came around and instructed me to stop. Jobsworth!

I have had a sneak preview of Scarlett’s next interview extraordinaire - it rocks!

Local news

local headlines

Spotted lying on the pavement outside the cornershop in Oxted.

The award joy apparently concerns the Campaign for Real Ale guidebook listing local Oxted pub The Royal Oak in their latest guide book.  It was probably a slow week down at the paper, or else this counts as an advertising feature.

Miss Print

image

This is a quality hand-printed silk lampshade, from Miss Print, as seen at the By Design exhibition at Grace Barrand.

Miss Print is a mother-daughter business, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including 1950’s design and illustration and natural and organic influences.

Magnolia Tree

Magnolia Tree

The magnolias are in bloom at the moment, a sure indication that spring is here. In a couple of weeks it will all be over, with the spring blossoms having passed.

The Royal Horticultural Society has some advice about pruning magnolia trees.  If done at all it should be done in summer.

A coach

coach

I was out walking with Miney and Meanie this evening when we saw this coach from Skinners of Oxted come past.  It reminded me of one of those caterpillars with the eyebrows.  Skinners is a family-run coach business, based in Oxted.

Grace Barrand

Another photograph from the By Design exhibition at the Grace Barrand Design Centre. This is where I normally get my caffeine fix on a Saturday morning while Miney is down the road at SESAY rehersals.  And lately I have been using shots from my mobile phone to build up composite “panoramas”, with mixed results. 

I think one of the problems with the above shot is that I moved around a bit too much while composing its parts.
