The village cricket team storms to victory

The village cricket team stormed to victory in their first outing against a Geoff Moss X!. After the generous gift of a cricket net to the Village Sports field the next obvious step was to get a cricket team together. All sorts leapt at the opportunity to show their skills with a good mix of age and experience! Geoff kindly arranged for us to play on the first XI pitch at Nailsea Cricket Club’s Grove Centre, a venue befitting the occasion. His team batted first and scored 130 in the allotted 30 overs which Tickenham passed with the loss of two wickets.

The day was such a success that we have been challenged to three more games next season – two 20/20 matches and another 30 over game. It is hoped to arrange other fixtures against suitable opposition. Anyone interested (no test match experience necessary!) please contact .

Security Advice

With the main holiday season nearly upon us, police would like to remind all members of the following:

. Try to make your home look occupied even when it is not – using lights or a radio on a “talk” station set on a timer can help to make it look as though you are in;

. Consider asking a neighbour to open and close curtains that are usually drawn on a daily basis;

. If you are normally in the habit of parking a car on your driveway, when going away on holiday try to arrange for a neighbour to park their vehicle in its place;

. Remember to cancel regular deliveries.
If you have information about any crime, phone the police on 101 or you can call anonymously to the independent charity CRIMESTOPPERS 0800 555 111.  For general information about Neighbourhood Watch nationally see the www.ourwatch.org.uk website.
