Club is to host fun day

A SUMMER sponsored walk and fun day is to be held at Matlock Cricket Club from 10am on Sunday, July 29.

The aim of the event and walk is to raise much-needed funds to enable the club to buy a safety net to run along the Causeway Lane side of the ground, improving safety for both passing motorists and those in Hall Leys Park, in the face of cricket balls being hit out of the ground during games.

The walk will be approximately five miles, starting and finishing at the club, and avoids most roads, so it will be safe and suitable for all. After the walk, there will be a bar, barbecue and ‘cricket-themed’ games and competitions, predominantly for the juniors, followed, at around 3pm, by a Matlock CC Over 25s v Matlock CC Under 25s Twenty20 game. Everything on the day will be suitable for club members, their friends and families.
