HILTON CRICKET CLUB WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU

Hilton has had a long tradition of village cricket on the Green.

After many successful years in the Noughties and Teenies, fewer players became available, as some went off to university, others became senior citizens and quite a few moved away from Hilton. For a while, our friends from other villages helped us to keep the tradition going, but the time has come for new blood and fresh minds to run the Club.

In the last couple of years, the turnout and enthusiasm for Cricket at Feast Week indicates that Hilton is ready to give its Cricket Club a rebirth.
• Perhaps you have run a sports club before
• Maybe you are a parent of cricket-loving children
• Perhaps you are a mean batter or a demon bowler yourself
• Maybe you are one of our treasured community volunteers

If you are any of these, or would just like to help, please come to a meeting in the Pavilion on Thursday 20th June at 8.00 pm
(If you cannot make the meeting, but want to be involved, please email )
Thank you. Allan Salem (Hon Secretary)

Cricket – Thursday 16th May

As you may have seen out of the window, the rain is continuing and we have made the decision that it has stopped play today! We will be cancelling the cricket sessions tonight, but adding one on the end so there will be a session on Thursday 11th July and the kids will still get all 8 sessions.

If you haven’t already signed up there are still a few spaces left – please email for more information.
