LOWERHOUSE are staging another Good Friday 2013 cricket event at the club.

It will be another fun-packed day for all the family with entertainment and food and drink through the day.

There will be a live act, The Spacebats on in the early evening.

Invitations are open to enter a team.

Each team consists of 10 players and everyone will compete in the field and with bat and ball.

It will be run on a league basis, so each team will play more than one game.

The first game will start around 10 a.m. and the final should be over by around 4-30 p.m.

This will have to be flexible depending how many teams wish to take part.

Please email Jez Hope on jezahope@googlemail.com as soon as possible so that numbers can be finalised.
