Did you enjoy the 2011 summer?
If you blinked you may have done. As you all know I am an avid golf fan and was thankful that I was securely tucked up at home with a cup of tea and a chocolate hobnob whilst the irrepressible Darren Clarke strode majestically to a three shot victory in Sandwich in what was arguably the worst weekend of weather the Open had seen in quite some time. Northern Ireland now boasts three major champions in three years – incredible achievement for them. Now that the Open has passed Olympic fever grips Kent with qualification at Medway Park this weekend for team GB’s pentathlon hopefuls. With the recently released news that Brands Hatch will host around 34 cycling events for the Paralympics in 2012, this is fantastic news for Kent. Bridgewood is only a short cycle ride from the famous circuit and very well placed for Ebbsfleet (less than 11 minutes) with the Olympic village a further 18 minutes on – the whole games less than 30 minutes away – what bliss.
Don’t forget to check out our summer offers on our web page, we have a great bucket and spade promotion which will help you make the most of some of Kent’s blue ribbon beaches. The weather is set to change so make sure you take advantage and book one of Bridgewood’s great packages which also include free dining for the kids. If the beach isn’t your thing then check out the Olympic Village – you’ll be there before you know it.
Have a great summer break.
