successful that a repeat event is to take place this year,
with proceeds going to the same three charities.

Sunday afternoon I was given a preview of just three of
the many beautiful gardens which will be open to visitors.
Just to show how much there is to be seen, those three gardens
alone took me two hours to view and photograph, so there
will be plenty for the visitor to admire and to pick up
ideas for their own gardens.
and on page five are some of the many photos I took plus
a moving picture show of the many shots I did not have room
to publish individually on these pages.
Aston Ingham - The Motion Picture
guess this is really 'Aston Ingham, the sequel' as I made
a similar film last year. The animated stills film is made
up of most of the photographs I took on Sunday afternoon
in just three of the gardens.
am sorry about the sea shore music but I prefer to use my
own material for financial reasons and, to be honest, I
am running out of ambient background music and have not
had time to record more.
made a very obvious mistake in this one with the tubular
bells at the end - hitting the wrong note and immediately
correcting it. I got used to it at the time of the recording
but it sticks out like an 'ouch' to me now. The track, 'Three
Cliffs Bay' was recorded in 1999.

Yer Bike Officer!
rickshaw-style pedicabs came to the rescue when police officers
needed to go the assistance of colleagues in a hurry on
Hereford’s Castle Green.
unusual police pursuit unfolded when PCs Ann-Marie Rosier
and Sue Beament received an emergency distress call from
officers trying to arrest a man for breach of his bail.
Knowing that they would both take too long on foot and unable
to get there by patrol car, the officers were faced with
a dilemma - until Hereford’s two pedicabs pedalled into
just dropped off a fare, the pedicabs were immediately pressed
into police action and their riders - Ben Matthews and Will
Vaughan - rose to the task and pedalled their way furiously
to the other side of the Green with the two police officers
colleagues were some distance away and in need of urgent
assistance but we couldn’t get there by car,” explained
PC Rosier. “We knew that if we ran the distance it may take
too long and when we arrived we probably would not have
been in the best condition to help out our colleagues -
so when the pedicabs turned up we used out initiative and
hopped on board.”
Beament added: “It was great timing on their part. Will
and Ben did a fantastic job to get us there so quickly.
They really got into the spirit of it and were ringing their
bells to warn people we were coming. I even tried making
a siren noise myself - but the bells were far more effective!”
at the scene the two officers were quickly able to assist
with the arrest and the man was taken to Hereford Police
Station. He was later remanded into custody for his breach
of bail and for the assault of a police officer.
PC Rosier and PC Beament have already passed on their thanks
to Will and Ben for their public-spirited efforts while
Herefordshire Division will also be handing over a generous
tip for the impromptu ride.
