Hilly Fields Cricket - rain stops play

Cricket was due to start on the new Hilly Fields cricket square this weekend, but the record-breakingly soggy April and continued rain in May has squelched those plans. Friends of Hilly Fields pass on the message from the Council that:

It is with regret that following a pitch inspection this lunchtime we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the official opening cricket match scheduled for this Sunday. Unfortunately, the square and outfield are too wet to allow preparation and play for Sunday. We will look to reschedule the game at a later date and hope that you will be able to attend.
