The May Bank Holiday looms, and the thoughts of all decent men turn to cricket. Forget the West Indies, and our upcoming battles with New Zealand, this is about saving the Horsington Cricket Pitch.
After a year’s absence, our friends the Tabard Pilgrims CC from Chiswick, West London, are returning to Horsington to play our village team. The match is very important as staging a game on the village pitch continues the legal right to use the field as a cricket pitch in future years.
But we need a team. The nucleus is there, but we could do with some more players. If you are handy with a bat or a ball and own, or can borrow, some white trousers, we need you! Contact Philippa Tarling at the Half Moon. – Tel 370140
The match will be played on Sunday 24 May – first ball at 2.30.
There will be a barbeque afterwards at the Half Moon, followed by the traditional Bank Holiday Pub Quiz.
