Sua and I attended a lunch today at the Man Yuen Chinese restaurant in Tottington to mark the 125th Anniversary of Tottington St. John’s Cricket Club. Founded in 1887 the cricket club has now expanded to include rounders and football – hence the change of name to Tottington Sports Club. Around 150 people attended the lunch and I guess many hundreds of pounds will have been raised towards the new pavilion extension which is in the process of being constructed.
Past and present players were joined by family, friends and supporters in what was a tremendous start to this anniversary year. The club are aiming to raise £10,000 to build the new extension to the pavilion and have launched a Buy-a-Brick scheme. Anyone wanting to help the Club can buy a brick for just £25.00 more details can be found from the Club’s website here
