As a free coffee?

I’m off to the Members’ Coffee morning later, planning to meet Richard Griffiths one of the Directors of Hampshire Cricket Heritage plc who should have with him what we bought from the Shackleton Auction. We plan to display it this morning.

I’ll also meet up with some of the office staff – including some new guys – to talk about items for the website and, especially, the Handbook.

I’ll post some news and photos later – hope to see some of you there.

Maybe I’ll get two cups?

PS Just been alerted by Don Starr (thanks) to a letter about state school kids and cricket in today’s Guardian (online) which apart from the focus on Yorkshire says exactly what I would say. Diversity isn’t just a matter of skin colour or gender! It’s excellent:

Brilliant letter. Going back to my days at school, early 1960’s, I attended 2 secondary schools. Both had artificial pitches which meant you could always play, without the need for preparing the pitch every time.

In my 10 years as a Comprehensive School teacher (1975-1985) both schools I taught in had Sports Halls with indoor nets and both were big enough for indoor matches which meant we could play and practice forms of cricket all year round.
