Well, a great night was enjoyed by all who attending this event, huge fun in a laid back jovial atmosphere. Fair to say we raised a sum of money for the club and a donation was also made to the charity The Sir Bob Champion Cancer Trust as a huge thank you to the guys of The Cotswold Frog Racing Team who did such a great job.
Speaking of Charities it was lovely to see a representative from The Meningitis Trust who came to officially received a £780 plus donation from money raised from this years Beer Festival, beer glasses sales. The pictures that follow are random shots , hopefully showing the fun everyone had.

Wednesday 15th August saw the visit of our very good friends from Crab Hill, St Lucy in Barbados. North Stars arrived for a day of cricket and socialising and a huge success it was too. A good number of folks came along to support the day and say hello. A huge thank you to all who came, too many to mention individually by name but you all played a part in the success of the day. However a special thank you must go to Kerry Thornton, Eric Bird and Vince Webb for their sterling efforts with the catering and bar.
Morning drizzle turned into light cloud then blue skies and sunshine. The cricket match was exciting with Frocester posting 210 in their innings after 35 overs. In reply it was a stand out performance by captain Ashley Skeete for North Stars scoring a century guiding home his team to a fine win with just 5 overs remaining.
Our guests departed around 9.30 in rain, sad to be leaving and saying fond farewells, until next February at least when Frocester will be the visitors to North Stars for the return match. We can’t wait!
