Having spent most of the morning refreshing BBC weather, The Met Office and Mr Liddell’s trusty weather app, we decided that the U8 Cricket Skills Festival would go ahead as planned! With Cranleigh, Daneshill and Hall Grove in attendance we had a fun afternoon of cricket with our fantastic Lambrook staff and ex-international cricketer Lydia Greenway.

The afternoon consisted of pupils rotating around various stations including fielding, batting and bowling, followed by a modified pairs cricket match. Lydia Greenway offered the girls her expertise across all the stations with schools and staff making the most of her expertise (as well as photo opportunities!).

As a take away gift the girls were given a postcard which was then signed by Lydia Greenway. A fantastic afternoon was had by all and thankfully the bad weather held off!
