Fortunately cricket is a sport that naturally practices social distancing and is non-contact.
We would ask that you send this message out to the village so everyone knows what the club have planned for the coming weeks.
We hope this is a positive demonstration of our commitment to improved club/village relations.
Here's to a happy and healthy rest of the summer.
Way back in the year 1300, 'Wardrobe Accounts' of King Edward I (King of England) include a reference to a game called "Creag" being played at Newenden by Prince Edward, who was aged 15 at the time.
There are suggestions that creag was the beginnings of cricket. Did the British sport of Cricket begin in Newenden?
