Kwik Cricket Festival

We could not have asked for better weather for our annual cricket festival.  There were a total of 12 primary school teams for the event including Stockcross, Bucklebury, St Finian’s, Woolhampton, Brightwalton, Hermitage as well as Home Farm.

After an introduction from Mr Bates, there was a short demonstration from Mr Morris on how to hold a bat as for some children, this would have been the first time they had played.   The afternoon consisted of 2 matches, with each child taking it in turns to bat and of course a very welcome match tea in between.

We finished with a presentation of an autographed cricket bat to the ‘Man of the Match’ from each team. It was a wonderful afternoon.
