We spent the first weekend of half-term camping with the Philip family in the market town, Castle Cary, in South Somerset.
The Bloxham School staff team played three fixtures against local Somerset clubs: Philip in (bowling) action. His tour highlight: scoring 41 runs against Queen Camel.
Playing hide and seek in Cheddar Gorge.
We beat the rush and got to Cheddar Gorge early enough to escape the hoards of tourists. Ben, the aspirant climber, was delighted to witness some proper cool climber dudes in action.
We visited the home of Cheddar cheese: Ben was obsessed with cheese tasting and particulary loved the cheddar flavoured with cider/port/whisky.
And then a round of crazy golf to work off all that aforementioned cheddar.
