Whenever I mention that I am from the UK I am usually end up discussing football and the bad weather. However, the next popular question I am asked is about cheese rolling.
The Cheese Rolling Contest takes place at Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire. It is held on the last Monday in May which is a public holiday in the UK.
Starting at midday there are five downhill races including an all women's race. A Double Gloucester cheese is rolled down the hill while the competitors chase after it.
As you can see from the photo there is a good chance that competitors get injured in the pursuit of the cheese. The first person down the hill wins the cheese.
This event could only happen in the UK. Would I take part? No way, I do not like cheese.
Until the next post, stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
