Busy Week in Bourne End

Thank you to everyone who attended the Family Fun Cricket Day last Sunday. We were blessed with perfect weather which, in turn, brought out the crowds, including our MP David Gauke, who took much needed time out from politics and bowled an alarmingly good over to open the second innings. Please enjoy Dave Hill's match report below and photos of the day.

Tomorrow evening, Thursday 5th September, is Village Night in the Anchor. Come along and meet your BEVA reps and relax with friends and neighbours.

Then on Sunday 8th, it is the Annual Village Show. All details have been distributed to every household. See the flyer below.

Family Fun Cricket Day 1st September

We are looking forward to a great event on 1st September.  Do come along and bring friends and family.  There will be a "family" soft ball cricket session for children and their parents, followed by a 20 - 20 match for more experienced players.  But no need to join in the cricket at all - just come along and enjoy an afternoon of food, drinks, music and games.  If you'd like to join the 20-20 game, please contact Charlie (as in the flyer) or Hugo on 07958 457373
