View from the village hall’s cricket pavilion looking towards the river Lavant
Can you believe it. In 2009 the village green was covered in snow, but this year at the end of December after months of rain the river Lavant has burst its banks and flooded the village green right up to the hall, also flooding the car park.

It was hope that we could have finally marked out the pitch on the green and use it in the New Year. But certainly for the foreseeable future this is not going to be possible.

Also the water had reached inside the village hall and the changing rooms so they are likely to be out of action for the next couple of weeks while things are cleared up. That is as long as the rain stops and we have a period of drier weather?
As a result the fixtures for January published below could well be subject to change depending on the village hall availability.
The weather is also affecting league fixtures elsewhere for both the Saturday and Sunday leagues games so fixtures do keep changing.
But we will let you know of any changes on the Website either on the News or Fixtures & Results pages.
