WE are in the process of enjoying a plethora of Standard bank Holidays.

All of the lateness of Easter necessitates there will be four in forty nine days.

After that there is just one custom-made period of over six months. One out of mid-October could be used to extremely advantage. Perhaps a day to obtain early Christmas shopping or taking pleasure in the leaves turning reveal as autumn approaches.

This springtime bowl of holidays affords people many opportunities. In the changeable exciting county there are so many interesting events to attend. Wacky lignage at Tetbury is a treat, some of the vehicles have to be used to be believed.

At Amberley you can hunt a cow. Shin kicking takes place in a wonderful Cotswold Olympics along Dover Hill. Duck contests take place at Lechlade and South Cerney.

Even when I was of running age I would have bottled it. Playing football during the river at Bourton-on-the-Water could have been my limit, Mrs Light would settle for racing a duck at To the Cerney.
