There was numerous working parties at the ground over the early weekends in April. It’s fair to say the ground looks brilliant for this time of year. There is still lots happing around the ground in the coming weeks so make sure you pop down for a drink on our fresh new picnic benches and watch it all take shape.
Grand National Sweepstake
A sweepstake for the Grand National was set up by Andy Tomlinson. Thanks to Andy for arranging this. The lucky winners on the day were:
1st - Holly King
2nd - Rob Adderley
3rd - Anthony Bevan
It was great to get back on the grass for a good game played between two mixed OG sides. There was some great performances on the day. Stand out performers with the bat were, Macca, Chris & Jamie all retiring at 30. Ellis and Paul took 5 & 4 wickets respectively with the ball. All in all it was a great day, with team B taking the spoils. Big thanks to Dave Don & Higgy for umpiring, almost without incident. Also George King was at the ground taking some fantastic photos. If you haven’t seen them take a look here.
The virtual awards ceremony took place last week. Great credit must be given to Andy King for all his hard work organising this. He truly has done a magnificent job producing the video. You can watch the video here.
