Kwik Cricket Afternoon for Years 1 & 2

On a mild, sunny afternoon, four schools met by the pavilion for a festival of cricket. After an introduction from Mr Steve Bates, the budding young cricketers were keen to get started. The four visiting schools were Hermitage, Woolhampton, Stockcross and Bucklebury Primary Schools.

The perfect weather conditions and a good smattering of parents to provide the intermittent sound of clapping and cheers as runs were scored and wickets taken, made for a pleasant afternoon.  The refreshments, at half-time, were very welcome and well-earned. Lara provided some delicious mouthfuls of delight as always.  We finished with a presentation of the awards to ‘Man of the Match’ in each team. An Autograph Cricket Bat was presented to the players with not only good sports skills but also good sportsmanship.  A successful afternoon wrapped up before the rain.
