On Sunday 27th Oct approx 18 of the Juniors from Bury CC descended on Asda ready and waiting with their club buckets - Myself , Lleyton & Reece set the ball rolling at 11.15am - they were swiftly joined by Donovan ( see pics 1 & 2 ) just as Lleyt muttered ` this is only for an hour dad isnt it ? ` & ` is there anyone else coming ? ` ..............thankfully ! ........in came the rest of the Bury CC contingent - some in full whites ! which made Winifred on till 14 a tad nervous as tall fast bowling Umar was one of them approaching - ` not to worry love hes only here for your money ` said i ........., which in hindsight probably wasnt very comforting for Winifred as Umar approached in `Gangsta style baseball Cap ` too innit ! .......lol
A big thank you to all the helpers - you really were terrific ! ( i wont attempt to name all as i always forget one ` - but you know who you are ) ............. - this was put together at quite short notice so to raise a total of £362.02 was a great effort by all .
And for those who were unable to attend for whatever reason please please try to get down to the next one on Sunday 15th December - 12 - 4pm - we will hopefully double that total and get our new changing room seating completed in readiness for next season ...... .
