Country retreat fit for royalty...

Regular contributor PETER McGREGOR EADIE, avoids the bright lights of London and takes a pre- Christmas break on the golf course....

AS THE Christmas season gets underway, and the lights of Regent Street and Oxford Street in London go on, people flock to London to do their Christmas shopping and take in some of the shows and pantomimes. This could offer to keen golfers a good opportunity to include a short break on the golf course.

Recently I enjoyed such a break at Brocket Hall just 22 miles from the centre of London. This venue lies within the magnificent parkland of a 543 acres estate.

Eastern European Gems!

phoca_thumb_m_ukraine

BRIAN OGLE took a short trip to the Ukraine recently and found two of its best known cities well worth a second look....especially with the European Soccer Championships due in the country in two years time...

ON the way in from Borospyl International Airport, a forest of tower blocks testify to Kiev's Soviet past. Like most other eastern European cities the visitors' first impression is not a complimentary or comfortable one ...rundown-looking tower blocks of up to 15 and 20 storeys each housing hundreds and hundreds of the city's working class population.

Each satellite of tower blocks is in its own little suburban ‘town’ with well-used, worn grassy play areas, and stores serving every need... groceries, clothing, restaurants and cinemas.

Newquay

It’s thrill-a-minute at Cornwall’s adrenalin capital

By ROIBIN NOWACKI

WATCHING the golden sun setting into the deep blue Atlantic whilst sipping a cool glass of Cornish cider at Newquay’s stunning Fistral Beach is a memory I will always treasure.
Especially after the activity-filled day I had shared and enjoyed with Leila - my wife of just two weeks. This had included our very first unforgettable Zapcat race experience.
In my time I had ridden some of the most hairy and scary theme park rides in Europe and the USA - but my 15 minutes clinging on to one of these powerboats as they hit waves at exhilarating speed, took off into the air - and then crashed down with bruising impact - was far more thrilling.
