Hope you have all wintered well and ready to start preparing for the new Cricket Season!
Just a reminder we have winter indoor nets booked at the Indoor School at the Choice Cricket centre at the Flamsteadbury Estate, these start next Sunday 2nd February from 3 to 4 pm. As always it is always a good opportunity to bring along any new potential players for a try-out and meet the Team!
I have just been told the annual Quiz Night has been booked and confirmed for Friday 15th May at the Meads Primary School in Luton, we shall be chasing for Teams a bit nearer to the season starting.
I am very conscious that I may not have a full list of emails, we had a few new members and some old faces reappear last year. If anyone has there most recent contact details to forward on to me it would be appreciated.
Some other dates to be considered, these are events happening on the Estate during the year.
RDA Sponsored Dog Walk Sunday 15th March starting at 2pm
Gaddesden Estate Quincentenary
On Saturday 16th May the Estate will be holding a Farm Walk and Open Day at Home Farm to commemorate 500 years of continuity by the Halsey family.
As part of this event we are offering all our tenants (both commercial and residential) the opportunity to showcase their businesses to other residents, Gaddesden estate neighbours, business contacts and the general public. The plan is to offer businesses and individuals the chance to network and to demonstrate the high level of talent found in this small corner of Hertfordshire.
The tenants' showcase will be held alongside an exhibition on food and farming today, and on the history of the Gaddesden estate from the dissolution of the Monasteries.
There will be a number of tours of the estate during the day and a chance to purchase locally-sourced food and drink.
