This Saturday 22nd August will see the annual cricket match between The Cricket Club and The Village Shop on the Cricket Green. As of this year, the contest will be for the Mary Caroe Cup.
Mary was lost to Covid earlier this year and as we slowly return to some normality with this cricket match, in this strangest of years, it feels fitting to establish this fixture in her memory. Mary was feisty, fair, took no prisoners and always seemed to have a smile on her face, the cricket will be played in that spirit.
Please come down and support the teams. Play starts at 1:30pm and the match is 30 overs a side. Bring a picnic and a blanket, the Cricket Club bar will be open, gin may be available and someone will have the shop keys if supplies run low.
The weather forecast is good. Let’s remember Mary how she’d like us to, having some fun.
