An Evening with Stuart Broad and Jos Buttler


Nearly 150 of you joined us to hear 2 cricketing legends talk about their careers in cricket, as well giving us some exclusive insight into team tactics for this test. I would like to thank everyone for coming and being so generous in the action, and heads and tails. The Club managed to raise just over £5000 for the Ruth Strauss Foundation. Here’s what you thought:

‘Excellent meal and thoroughly entertaining and informative chat from Broad and Buttler.’
‘Brilliant, relevant guests and very well organised.’
‘Food was good. Very well organised. Paul was hilarious with great questions to the cricketers. Very interesting and very entertaining.’
‘Good relaxed atmosphere. Excellent guest speakers and Paul was a very good host. Good link to a very deserving charity.’

Family Day

Saturday 17th June saw the Clubs annual Family Day event, there were animals, balloons, bouncy castles, sweets, ice cream, games and more! We were very lucky to have beautiful weather and lots of you enjoyed the sun.

‘The range of activities was really good for the children.’
‘It was perfect for my young family, the entertainment was brilliant.’
‘I thought it was really well run with lots of things to do. The food was good. Lots of activities.’
‘It’s a really nice opportunity to spend some time with other families with children of a similar age and to take advantage of the lovely setting. You have put a lot of effort into it and it was very well organised. We enjoyed the games and it was all nice and relaxed with lots of places to sit and eat. We loved seeing the animals too and the food was great.’
‘Fun family day. Kids had a ball, fully entertained and a lot of fun.’
