Rowing Bristol Head race

Hamish from Signscape rowing at 3

This is me in my first rowing race for over 8 years – all the rest of the guys were under 30! so not too bad for a middle-aged baldy! I thoroughly enjoyed the event and forgot the cold. My family came to support – there were lots of people cheering from the banks – it was great fun. Rowing is really about working together to achieve a common goal and every one of us were nervous at the beginning and exhausted by the end of the race.

I took up rowing back in Sep 09 and have loved the training – but it’s great to compete! I’m in the no. 3 seat (which for those initiated is 3rd from left as you are looking at photo) with woolly hat and grimace on face.

Solar Powered Signs for Children

Solar Powered signs for children

This is me teaching Year 2 pupils @ Yatton Infant School. My daughter goes there and my wife was talking to one of the teachers, who asked if we could come in and talk about solar power as the children were learning about the planet and the harm fossil fuels were doing.

It was a great experience – very different from teaching teenagers. My daughter had helped me make a battery from an old shoe box, with a little 6V battery and light. The children rubbed their hands and put them into the “molecules” to light the bulb – all very excited when it lit up.

One of the children asked why don’t we use solar more?, especially if it saves the planet from being dug up! How incisive children can be..
