IronMum pictures in the Gazette

The photos I took of the Bramley IronMum event a few weeks ago have been printed in the Basingstoke Gazette (last Friday) and without permission / credit in the Gazettes website.

The Gazette forgot to send anyone to photograph it for themselves, and asked to use my shots, they didnt want to pay anything which I thought was odd for a commercial operation, but for the Ironmum organisers I allowed them to print it. I didn’t give permission for them to use it on their website, especially without giving at least some credit.

The article and my image can be seen here.

Wedding Fair

The first wedding of the season organised by Trevor Cruickshanks.  The well attended fair had a short wedding dress fashion show organised by Jayne Ann Brides.

IronMum Race

Today was the first Bramley IronMum race.

Around 25 Bramley Mums took part in either the Buns of Steel or the harder Abs of Iron race.

Photos of the event are on

The race took the ladies running around the lanes of Bramley near to Basingstoke on North Hampshire.  A 3 or 6 km run, followed by a 6 or 12 km cycleride, finished with a strength sprint.

They are a tough lot over in Bramley!
