Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo

Ambersham Polo Ground

On Sunday we wandered over to watch a Polo match at Ambersham Polo Ground at Selham, near Midhurst. At our end of the ground there was a group of ‘reserve’ horses – waiting to take to the field like substitutes in a football match. The sense of anticipation and excitement amongst the horses was palpable – they just couldn’t wait to get onto the field and get involved with the game.

You can sense from the ears, eyes and nostrils that this horse was wired and ready to play!

We paid £5 per adult to get in to watch the game (kids went free). It was my first time watching Polo and I have to say it was pretty exciting stuff! The final score was Piaget 10, Thai Polo 6.

Midhurst Skatepark

Midhurst Skatepark

My boys have recently become addicted to scootering. We seem to be quite lucky in West Sussex, there are plenty of good skateparks around for those who like a bit of tail-whipping and grinding at the weekend!

Midhurst’s skatepark is in Carron Lane, Midhurst, West Sussex. It’s not the coolest park in the universe but it’s friendly and quiet, and the big ramp is quite high. Basically it’s a couple of ramps and some rails… and it’s named after a local lad called Steve McGill, who as a passenger was killed in a car crash back in 2001 aged just 18.

Where is Midhurst Skatepark? If you’re looking for the postcode it’s GU29 9LF… The address is Carron Lane, Midhurst.

Anyway, enough of the trendy shots… Let’s not big it up. Here’s what Midhurst skatepark really looks like…
