In last week’s publication, the date of the free session was incorrectly entered for which we apologise.

Tomorrow, Bungay Cricket Club is hosting a free session of cricket for all girls and boys aged six-11 at Bungay Sports Hall, behind the High School premises.

The morning’s aim is to encourage youngsters to enjoy the sport of cricket with some fun and active sessions taken by fully trained coaches to give an introduction for those who want to try the sport for the first time and for those returning after the winter break.

The emphasis will be very much on making it a lively session using soft ball kit and no previous experience is required.

The morning starts at 10am and finishes at noon and organisers ask that each child brings a bottle of water.

Any questions, please contact Stuart Buck on 07950 480195.
