As supporters of the village field development, I thought you would be pleased to share our pleasure in receiving the below e-mail from Somerset Playing Fields’ Association.
Thank you for your continued support.
Alan Hooley Tickenham Field Committee
“I am very pleased to inform you that your field has been successful in this year’s Field of the Year Competition and you are due to receive an award.
The awards will be presented at our Presentation Evening which will immediately follow the 2015 Annual General Meeting which will be held in the main hall at Woolavington Village Hall, Higher Road, Woolavington on Tuesday, 1st September 2015 at 7.30 p.m.”
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 .
