Buckhorn Weston combined their Cricket Club annual Open Day/6-a-side competition with a village Get Together in memory of MP Jo Cox. North Dorset MP Simon Hoare was our guest and attended with his daughters who enjoyed helping Dad judge our cake contest! The 6-a-side competition was won by our very own Buckhorn Stingers and we were also treated to a demonstration match featuring our Under 11’s “Buckeroos” and our new Ladies team (the LBW’s – Ladies Buckhorn Weston)
Hot dogs, burgers and a bar

Hoping to get to Northern Italy on this 1937 BSA!
And we had a lot of 6-a-side fun during the day
Always nice to click the shutter at the right moment!

It was a lovely day with plenty of sunshine in a wonderful setting. Many thanks to all who helped make the day such a success and to all our visitors and supporters for coming along.
