Clappers Lane + Truck = Mayhem

On Friday a truck missed the turn to AVS Fencing in Holmbush Lane and continued down Clappers Lane damaging vegetation and the fencing at Preston Nomads Cricket Ground where it turned around.

According to AVS, all suppliers are given directions and told not to go down Clappers Lane. However they believe that a contributory factor is that the sign on the corner of Clappers and Holmbush Lanes, which they have permission from WSCC to put there, was removed or at least not visible. AVS have mended the fencing and cleared up as best they can, but would appreciate any information about how the sign came to be tampered with. Contact: 01273 492969

The colour of cricket

Non-whites at Preston Nomads

Unexpected coloured clothing

The weather had been drizzly all morning and there was no play before lunch, but soon afterwards the players emerged. My second surprise of the day was to see them in coloured clothing whereas I was expecting day one of a three day championship game normally played in whites. .. I returned the following day in somewhat better weather to see proper cricket, in whites, get underway.

Residents’ car parking at Preston Nomads

Residents parking at Preston Nomads
Readers are reminded that there are half a dozen car parking spaces at Preston Nomads which are reserved for Fulking residents. The grounds are normally locked but those with parking spaces get their own keys and there is a lift-and-lock pole on each space. For legal reasons, there is a small fee to pay. Full details can be obtained from the Head Groundsman, Brian Sandalls, at the grounds.

To judge from the state of the grass (see above), only one of the six spaces is in current regular use.
