Highlights 2017

Drawing of a cricket team

By Gabrielle Tymkow

We had slightly soggy Cricket Week in 2017, although some cricket was played every day. In a week slightly short on numbers, teams played with 10 or 11 players each day. The 15/15 was lost to the weather, but the end of the week was much better, and much fun was had by all with the pantomime fancy dress theme. It’s not very often you will see the back end of a horse bowling to Cinderella and Dick Whittington, while Captain Hook patrols the covers with a plank “long barrier”!
