On behalf of the Belvoir Cricket and Countryside Trust I wish to thank Trumpton and the many people who contributed to its tour and collection for our recent grant of £268.

This will pay for a three-week Teach Cricket programme in Asfordby Captain’s Close and Asfordby Hill primary schools.

The aim of the programme is to re-introduce cricket into schools and get children up and active while also giving teaching staff the support they need to carry on coaching.

The Teach Cricket programme will also act as a taster for our new Belvoir Bees kwik cricket sessions in Asfordby.

Starting on Tuesday, April 12 and led by professional coaches the Bees will reach up to 30 children per week, giving them the opportunity to really learn the game and improve their skills.

The sessions, to be held at Asfordby Parish Hall from 6pm to 7.30pm for 12 weeks, are open to all boys and girls aged six to 11. They are being supported by Melton Borough Council and will actively promote inclusion with the emphasis firmly on fun.

To find out more or to book a place please contact me on 07547 554288 or email
