Your Ideas

During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

Cricket:Please do come and see the Grayswood Under 11s side play against Witley Under 11s at Grayswood Village Green on Sunday 8th June 2008 at 10.00am. Youth cricket is alive and well and Grayswood in Surrey (near Haslemere) has over 100 boys and girls in its various teams. Grayswood Village Green has a trademark oak tree in the playing area as well as the beautiful church overlooking the ground.

Every boxing day, there is a tradition in Maldon, Essex, called the mad Maldon mud race where a large number of brave (and crazy) people have to cross the river, at low tide, and back again in deep, thick mud. It is hilarious to watch and local people come from all over Essex and beyond to watch this event
Check it out....
