This is the scene out the window at around 7am this morning. Who could have guessed at how the rest of the day would develop….
Much to our surprise, cricket has returned to our park after an absence of something like 10 years. When we first moved here there was hockey, cricket and football being played, but only football remains, and even this seemed to be tailing off. As far as I can tell, the sports pavilion lost its changing facilities to a nursery, which may have hastened the demise of organised park matches. So it’s a pleasure to see the return of cricket – and on a cold, grey, late-April afternoon, too!
