29th August 2015
Well it's been an up and down emotional roller coaster of the last week. Firstly there was the tragedy of the Shoreham Airshow crash last week. I was making my way to the Amex Stadium, looking forward to sun, drinks and cheering up after slightly miserable week, when I heard the sad news of events. The kickoff for Brighton Vs Blackburn was sensibly delayed by 15 minutes due to these events. Though the Albion won, and had good evening of drinks with friends the feeling around Amex Stadium and Brighton was subdued generally.
I waited until I got home to Strike Towers to read full details. It was a sad day and weekend for Sussex and events of the Shoreham Airshow crash made national news headlines around England and UK being nations biggest airshow tragedy since Farnborough in 1952. Thoughts are with victims family and friends, and I will be doing the REMF Jacob Schilt sponsored walk between Shoreham and Worthing in memory of Jacob and other victims on 12th September. Donations to REMF can be done via this link www.justgiving.com/JacobsREMFwalk
In other news hoping to start volunteering at Nymans Gardens soon. Plus for the time being deciding to take a break from Oxfam Crawley, though one day will be back to help the good people there again like I have done since 2009.
Finally the US Open tennis starts on Monday and Brighton are top of Championship League. :)
