MCC Match & Cricket BBQ – Sunday 2nd September.

We are delighted to welcome the Marylebone Cricket Club for a match on Sunday 2nd September at Grittleton.  Come along and watch, we will be running a BBQ towards the end of the game and a bar during the day in the Pavilion.

We want the focus of the day to be around the Pavilion, which has been the centre of Grittleton cricket for at least 100 years.  We have reached out to all the old players that we are still in contact with to join in the celebrations with current players, villagers and friends.
