It's not very often that you see something so beautiful as a field full of flowering red poppies, but it's happening in a field just outside of Bristol right now, so I just had to go there and see this lovely sight for myself.
It seems quite fitting that this should happen on the the 70th Anniversary of the D day landing's in Normandy
The Ex England International Rugby Scrum half who has also played for Bristol Rugby Club and Saracens Rugby Club, who has in recent years turned to ice dancing after appearing on and winning ITV's Dancing on ice in 2007.
He returned to Bristol to coach the Impact team who are training before their big charity match on August the 16th at the home of the Bristol Barbarians, Norton Lane, Whitchurch, as well as the rugby game their will be live music, a raffle and a BBQ.
The impact team hope to raise at least 10K after raising 6k last year.
This year's charity's who will benefit are the Jessie May Trust and Children's Hospice South West.
Better known locally as 31 Corn street, had it's VIP opening night party last night and the 365Bristol.com team were there to check it out and sample the wares.
The food and drink were superb and served at the table by very friendly and talkative waiting staff, The decor is quite spectacular with lots of lovely old paintings adorning the walls and the most amazing wood and mirrored bar area that is 100% unique, the tables were beautifully lit by candles in china cups and saucers the original features of the building have been left and with the wonderfully ornate ceiling carvings the whole bar almost looks like a Victorian tea room, this makes it feel so relaxed.
It is also dog friendly, something that is of vital importance these day's with so many people wanting to take their dogs everywhere with them.
The promotion decider game and also the last game Bristol rugby played at their home ground of 93 years, the Memorial ground. It was a very wet night the rain hadn't let up all day but this did not stop the ground being filled to it's 12,000 capacity
Sadly Bristol lost 20 - 21. There were lots of cheers and tears, and the atmosphere was electric right to the end.
Well done Bris who next year will be playing at their new home Ashton gate.
