Charity Cricket Match on Jan. 21

There will be a celebrity charity cricket match Saturday, January 21 on a newly created cricket pitch at the corner of Wildwood  and Commonage roads.  Money raised will go to support local causes including the local volunteer fire brigades.  The brigade will be helping to manage gold coin parking. The pitch is part of the Rivendell property.

The event will involve a group of six-a-side cricket teams captained by sporting personalities taking each other on in a day-long round-robin event.

Santa visits volunteers’ families

Santa Claus borrowed the brigade’s 1.4 truck to deliver gifts to the families of members of the brigade.  Around 10 families were visited.  Santa was helped by Carlo Baldini and Annie Palmer.  Amazingly, Santa has a striking resemblance to Mark Palmer.  Must be the beard.
