GUESS WHAT,
We did cross paths about three months later me and the same policeman,with two of his gang.I couldn't believe it was him.I felt like Frank Dam Spencer[some mothers do have um].
Early Sunday Autumn stunner of a day.Lets go to the local country park[6am ish].Wife,2 kids[Boy 10.girl 8],Stafford-shire bull Terrier[well trained but giddy and hates Other dogs near any of us].Absolutely know-body about for an hour or so in the woods.Let dog off and throw a ball.Kids head to park area and wife.Me and dog play a while and follow on.
Dog shoots out from the undergrowth and on to park before i could see him,i didn't see him.The one man pushing a girl on a swing had nice new white trousers on.Dog LOVES people and decides he will make friends with him.Bloke went mental.I tried to apologise,offered to pay his dry cleaning,but he would keep digging.Third time he had a go.We just went off in the woods again.Afterall,its a park play area.I did tell him talking instead of listening was going to be the reason his nose would be sore for about four weeks[similar words].
We walked about three miles and found a path down to where we could go do my main greatest passion ,WHEN,from nowhere,two police cars from different directions came reving through the large grassed area we had reached.Three Policemen in total ,two and a one.
STOP AND COME OVER TO THE CAR SLOWLY PLEASE.
Stunned and a bit confused[had he reported me]i walked over.
OPEN THE GUN CASE PLEASE SIR

Confused me at first.Then A grin as wide as Morecambe Sands washed across my red chops,as i remove my Prism Trick Kite.
NOT AGAIN,MY TIME AGAIN,A KITE.YOUR WASTEING POLICE TIME
Nope,your wasteing my kite flying time pal.
They thought i had a gun and the warden had called them . Probably on the back of My Staff loving people.
Great day out.

GONZ,,,,**** HAPPENS,Hope your home safe and sound.Hope i made ya smile.

They wouldn't have it and had to pay again at a reduced rate, couldn't park in any of the car parks had to park in Tescos too.

Not happy.

I hope you get a refund. You can send them the wrist bands back for proof if needed.

Did you not try speaking to the organisers...to be fair the Ricoh staff know bugger all and are only doing what they are told.

Probably a good idea to give John a call and explain whats happened???
