The Inaugural Tim Edwards Memorial Cricket Day

03 June 2018

Chetnole Playing Fields

Tim Edwards was a colourful and gregarious character who died far too soon, a year ago on 24th May 2017. Tim was a passionate man who loved his family, his work (distilling and promoting Somerset Cider Brandy) and cricket.  Tim’s love for cricket, fun and sociability provided the answer - hence today's Memorial Cricket Day is taking place.

The day will start at 12.00 midday, there will be a Bar (with Somerset Cider of course!), a BBQ , Cream Teas and a Raflle with monies raised being donated to the Friends of the Yeatman Hospital Charity. For your entertainment there will be multiple teams playing limited overs cricket and there will be the opportunity for anybody who wishes, to take part in a Kwick Cricket game. For those who have not played Kwick Cricket, it is a high speed version of cricket aimed at encouraging all to take part (whether you have played cricket or not), played with a softer ball with everyone having the chance to bat and bowl – it is great fun!

Whether you knew Tim or simply share his love for cricket –  we hope that you will come to share his day, you will be very welcome - we think Tim would approve.
