Boughton News – May

Boughton Cricket Club News April 2015
Boughton’s cricket season is here. And what a season it promises to be because we have made some big changes this year. We now have far more fixtures than ever before. We have new teams to play in Downham Market and Castle Rising. We have our old rivals in Jesus College, Gooderstone and East Rudham to defeat.
Even more excitingly, we have established a very small league with our friends at Gooderstone and East Rudham. All three Clubs will play each other twice and there will be a winner and some form of a cup and presentation/social event. Next year, we hope to entice one or two other teams to join us and form a good, old fashioned Sunday League.
We will also try to fit in a couple of exciting weekday evening BoughtonBash T20 matches during the early part of summer to add a bit of fun to the season.
We have our warm up indoor nets session on 12th April at Downham Market Sports Centre from 10am-12noon and our first and only warm up game is on 19th April at Mundford, starting at 2pm.
Our other fixtures are as follows:
19th April Mundford (A)
17th May Castle Rising (A)
31st May Downham Market (H)
7th June East Rudham (A)
14th June Castle Rising (H)
21st June Farcet Fen (H) [TBC]
12th July Gooderstone (A)
19th July Jesus College, Cambridge (A)
26th July Downham Market (A)

Benefice Choir

This is a choir formed of interested people from the parishes in the benefice, almost all of which are represented, to sing at group services, carol services, special church events, etc. We are looking for new members who may not have formal music training but are interested in singing in a friendly group to a high standard and have the enthusiasm and commitment to keep coming back for more. It isn’t necessary to read music or to have choral experience—just enthusiasm. We meet on Thursday afternoons from 2-3 pm, mostly during term time, so school pickups and visiting grandchildren should not be a problem. If you are interested, speak to Tom Golden on 01366 500 052 or to one of the choir..
