The North Luffenham cricket team are playing a match against Burghley Park this evening on the Oval. Feel free to take a stroll and watch them play in the evening sunshine, and maybe follow up with a drink at The Fox.
This Post will expire at 6:30pm on Sunday August 1st, 2021.
For those of you who have thought recently, “h’mm the Pavilion is looking a bit grubby” or have mentioned things could do with a tidy up, now is your chance to help to make a difference.
The Cricket Club have obtained sponsorship for materials from Natwest, & is undertaking a “Get Stuck In” weekend from Friday 1st April to Sunday 3rd April. Obviously “Many Hands Make Light Work” and so we would welcome help from anyone who would be willing to assist in any way (for any period of time over the weekend) to get as much done as possible.
The intention is to spruce up the pavilion with a clean up and do some general maintenance – painting and repairs etc to make the pavilion and the area surrounding it a more pleasant place to be.
The pavilion is a village facility, able to be used by various different organisations within the village, and a clean up will make it a more welcoming space for anyone who wants to use it
If you can help out, please contact 07787557511 for further details and we look forward to seeing you over the weekend.
The Cricket Club will be will be holding an Open Day in conjunction with their annual “Lads vs Dads” cricket match on Sunday 13th September
Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy a fun afternoon on the Oval – it would make a great village day out in conjunction with the Garden Club show, and an excellent opportunity to see what the Cricket Club is about, and what goes on there – you might even be lent a bat to try out the new nets.
There will be a barbecue and the club have obtained a licence for the afternoon and will be selling wine, soft drinks & beer from the pavilion
A Sweet & ice cream stall should be present, and also some fun games.
Lewis Hill from Leicestershire County Cricket Club will be joining us for an hour at around 3.30 – 4.30 to help with the award presentations.
Last Wednesday – 25th June – North Luffenham Under 11 team scored a fine win in the local derby against Ketton – highlight of the match was a hat trick (3 wickets in 3 consecutive balls for those not fully conversant with cricket terminology) for Ellen Marson, which helped to limit Ketton to a total of 167 runs – 37 runs less than they needed to beat Luffenhams total of 204 -well done Ellen!
As its looking like a pleasant evening you may be interested in wandering up to the Oval to support North Luffenham in their Tuesday evening Burrough League Home match vs Great Dalby – start is 18:30, maybe see you there
Those of you who were there on the evening will already know that North Luffenham won 🙂
This Sunday sees the 2nd Annual Presidents match to be held on the Oval.
